Owner description: Seattle’s “must see” is now a “must do” following the Space Needle’s multimillion-dollar renovation. Glide onto The Loupe, the world’s first and only rotating glass floor, for never-before-seen views of the structure and the city. Lean into tilting glass walls on the open-air deck and float over Seattle on one of 24 angled Skyriser glass benches. Sip and sample the Pacific Northwest’s best while savoring the thrilling views. The future. Now open.

I was told about the construction after tickets were purchased. I didn´t had the chance to return them. I also think that the price is too high considering that everything is under construction.

Really don´t waste your time on this now. Is better to go to Kerry Park and enjoy the view over there.

Glad to see they are updating the needle. Was lucky to have gotten there early, the lines grew longer. The place is still being worked on but worth the view.

BE AWARE! There is a MAJOR construction going on the deck of Space Needle. I knew there was a construction before the visit through website but it didn't do justice to the extensive nature of the construction. With the dust and wood paneling everywhere, we could hardly see out the rest of the city. It's not worth the money for what you get, at least during the construction.

We visited the needle while it is undergoing construction. We knew well in advance it was under construction; however, we still wanted to visit. The views are still beautiful but a lot is obstructed by the construction. If you have the capability of waiting until construction is over to visit, I would wait.

The Space Needle is currently under construction. They are upgrading the restaurant which will include a glass floor. You can still go up but there is no discount and views are limited. You can still see Seattle 360 degrees but there is scaffolding and plywood everywhere. The views were great. I just wish the timing of my trip had not coincided with the construction.
