Since its opening in 1962, the Space Needle has been one of the most popular attractions in Seattle. The work of two very inventive architects, Edward E. Carlson and John Graham Jr., the tower is not only a reference to space exploration, but one particularly to the science-fiction narratives of the time. Moreover, the top of the Space Needle appears to be mistaken for a flying saucer such as those popularised by movies like Robert Wise's The Day the Earth Stood Still.
From the top of the architecturally futuristic tower, a spectacular panorama awaits you. Well beyond Seattle, the view reaches the beautiful mountain ranges surrounding both sides of the city. SkyCity, its famous restaurant perched on a rotating circular plateau, has been under renovation since 2017; its reopening is anticipated by all. Suspended at nearly 180 metres high, there is no question that its glass floor will become an absolute must for those who love heights and seek thrills. Accessible by elevator, the observation deck is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
