SkyCity at the Space Needle is one of the most expensive restaurants in Seattle. The average entrée price is $44.93 —to spend this much on the ground, you’ll have to get a menu degustation at Rover’s or put on a tie and go to Canlis.
SkyCity Restaurant closed in September 2017 as part of the Space Needle’s historic renovation project. There is currently no full-service revolving restaurant at the Space Needle .
The Oculus, a grand wood, steel, and glass staircase connects the upper-level to The Loupe, the world’s first, and only, rotating glass floor below. The new glass floor experience opened up a never-before-seen downward view of the structure and the surrounding area, putting Seattle , literally, at your feet.
The Space Needle is an observation tower in Seattle , Washington , United States. Considered to be an icon of the city and the Pacific Northwest, it has been designated a Seattle landmark.
General Space Needle tickets range in price from $24.50 to $37.50 , depending on age, when you buy, and whether you are buying tickets for seniors or children. Tickets are available online, at the Space Needle itself and as part of a few different package deals, if you’re looking to get more bang for your buck.

Seattle’s best-known landmark will suspend operations for almost three weeks due to COVID-19 concerns, according to a statement from Space Needle management Thursday evening. The observation tower will be closed to the public beginning Friday and lasting until March 31.
Space Needle is totally worth it if you have a nice day for great views to the mountains. If not, skip it. It can be nice at night too.
The Space Needle is located in Seattle and stands 605 feet tall. Pretty high when you plan to bungee- jump ! The saucer shaped top floor offers a 360-degree view over Seattle , Mount Rainier, Puget Sound and the mountains.
It was not, however, the first time anyone had jumped for sport from the Space Needle . In 1975 there was an unauthorized jump by two base jumpers off of the Observation Deck. Both landed safely and were arrested.
Visiting the needle for a view doesn’t require reservations .
The tower was never in any danger from the blustery conditions. “The Needle is built to withstand a wind velocity of 200 miles per hour,” notes the Space Needle’s website. Only a few lightning strikes a year actually touch the building, but the 25 lightning rods on the roof easily handle the load.
The Space Needle is 605 feet high. The Eiffel Tower is 1,063 feet high. This makes the latter almost twice as tall as the former.
