The most iconic building in Seattle, the Space Needle boasts awe inspiring views and and magnificent architecture. From the newly renovated multi-level top, you’ll see incredible views of mountains, cityscape and Puget Sound. If you’re planning a company outing, school field trip, or group getaway to the Space Needle, save time, money and energy by organizing transportation through a Seattle charter bus rental.
The Space Needle was constructed in honor of the 1962 World’s Fair. In total, the Space Needle stands 605 feet tall and offers 360-degree views from the main observation deck and open-air viewing area. Recently, the Space Needle underwent a multi-million dollar renovation project to create the world’s first, and only, rotating glass floor. Now you can enjoy breathtaking views of the city and of the structure itself when you look down and all around you. With over 24 angled vantage points, you can lean over the city on the Skyrider’s tilting glass walls.
The space needle is open 365 days a year, aside from partial or full shut downs for special events, holidays, or facility upgrades. Inside you’ll find the Atmos Cafe, which features local Pacific Northwest snacks and brews. If you're looking for mesmerizing skyline views from 500 feet in the air, the Atmos Wine bar has signature wine and food selections at the glass floor bar.
