Advice for Visitors


  • No timed tickets are required for your second visit, but keep your timed ticket from your first visit for entry; use the general boarding lane. If your first visit is during the day, your second visit must be during the last three hours of operation. If your first visit is at night, your second visit must be during the first three hours of operation the next day. Be sure to check for current hours.

  • The Space Needle uses timed ticketing, and during busy travel seasons and holiday periods, tickets can sell out in advance. We recommend going to the Space Needle as early as possible during your Seattle stay to reserve your visit time; you can reserve a time up to 9 days in advance.
