Welcome to the Space Needle’s online press kit. Built in 1962, the Space Needle stands 605 feet above the city welcoming well over a million guests from around the world each year. In the past year, the Space Needle has undergone a $100 million renovation.

The “spacelift” has completely transformed the top of this icon. Entire walls, barriers, and even floors have been replaced by clear structural glass to dramatically expand views. Whether you are leaning into the breathtaking views on our unique Skyriser glass benches or stepping out onto The Loupe, the world’s first and only revolving glass floor, you will be thrilled by this unforgettable experience. This kit is designed to “clearly” provide you with the tools you’ll need to write a perfect Space Needle story.
