Space Needle, or Seattle Center, was envisioned by Edward E. Carlsonde and made its debut at the 1962 World's Fair. Standing 605 ft. tall, the tower kept watch over the Emerald City.

The journey skyward takes only 43 seconds travel time from the ground level to the top, and from the observation deck, take in the incomparable 360 degree view of the Mt. Rainier, Puget Sound, the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, the beautiful city of Seattle and beyond.

By far, the Space Needle remains Seattle's most prominent and beloved landmark. It was credited with putting the city on the map after its debut. When visiting the iconic tower, you can also enjoy other attractions such as the Pacific Science Center and the Experience Music Project which is located next to the Space Needle. The Observation Deck, SpaceBase gift shop and SkyCity restaurant are open 365 days a year.
