This is it. You’re about to walk into a memory. Soaring 520 feet skyward. The city actually, really, truly at your feet. Step up. Step out. Step beyond your comfort zone. And experience wonder on a higher level.

Seattle’s “must see” is now a “must do” following the Space Needle’s multi-million dollar renovation. Glide onto The Loupe, the world’s first and only rotating glass floor, for never-before-seen views of the structure and the city. Lean into our Skyrisers, the tilting glass walls on the open-air deck, and float over Seattle on one of the 24 angled vantage points. Sip and sample the Pacific Northwest’s best while savoring the thrilling views.


Whether you want to view natural sights or Instagram city lights at night, the Space Needle is almost always open.
