UV and Security Portal Info

Cleanse® UV Portals are located after you scan your ticket for entry and are required for all ticketed Guests. The portals use safe, far-UV-C light to reduce viruses and bacteria. 90% of contaminants on clothing, bags, and skin are deactivated.

Below is more information about how safe, far-UV-C light (as well as powerful UV-C light) are used at the Space Needle as part of our Elevating Clean program.


The Space Needle uses the Evolv Edge® high-speed smart checkpoint system at the entrances for all Guests as part of its guest safety protocols.

Evolv Security Screening emits no signal and uses millimeter wave technology that operates in a similar frequency band to screening units currently deployed in U.S. airports. Learn more from the manufacturer.
