The Space Needle is located at
Seattle Centre. That’s an apt
description of where we are: the center of Seattle. Whatever your
interests—theatre, ballet, opera, professional sports, rock ‘n’ roll history,
roller coasters, science, movies, shopping, exploring or just plain walking
around—the city unfurls from the Space Needle.
The anticipation begins on the ground, the
moment your eyes and your imagination take in
the magnificence of the iconic structure you’ve
seen only in pictures.
The adventure begins as the elevators propel
you to the Observation Deck, 520 feet above our
|Every degree of the O Deck’s 360º view
commands your attention. The lofty panorama of
Seattle’s natural wonders. Snow-capped Mt.
Rainier to the south and the Cascade Mountains
to the east. The majestic Olympics to the west.
Float planes gently alight on sparkling Lake
Union. Ferries, cruise lines and cargo ships
cross Elliott Bay. One of America’s great cities
invites you to share in its treasures.
Forgot your binoculars? No problem. The
magnification power of our complimentary
Swarovski Telescopes magically empowers you to
spot a friend in the stands a couple of miles
away at Safeco Field, home of the Seattle
Mariners baseball team.
You don’t have to guess what you’re looking
at. We’ve got all the answers. Colorful,
imaginative environmental graphics around the
outer edge of the level, and the information
displays along the interior core are filled with
descriptive data and delightful trivia. And of
course there’ll be a surprise or two. Sorry,
can’t tell you. Then it wouldn’t be a surprise.
