The safety of our Guests and Team Members is our top priority, which is why we’ve made investments to implement the most effective, science-backed cleaning technologies and protocols available today.
We’ve made many changes to incorporate redundant layers of cleaning procedures – some you can see, some are done behind-the-scenes. What hasn’t changed are the breathtaking views atop the Space Needle.
Effective June 30, 2021:for the safety of unvaccinated children and vulnerable guests, masks are required indoors. Masks are optional outdoors for vaccinated guests.
For special accommodations, contact us at (206) 905-2100 or email@example.com before your visit.
