A must do even if you are scared of heights. The elevator is noiseless and does not go through all of the floor numbers. What a view!!!!
Seattle wasn't very sunny on this day so we decided to stop by here instead of the needle as it is cheaper. It has good views but it was a bit cloudy. Overall, I think we could have skipped this and checked out some other attraction.
The view from this observation deck is quite different from the one from the Space Needle. From the Space Needle the view of Downtown Seattle is nicer but from the Columbia Center you see so much more. Beautiful views of Puget Sound, Lake Washington, Lake Union, the floating bridges, the Olympic Mountains. You don't have to wait as much as... More
However, very difficult to get your bearings around Seattle as you are so high up, everything looks one dimensional which in turn is challenging when trying to identify things. Seattle was built on 7 hills but it all looks flat from up there.
Accessible up the street from the Monorail. Less crowded then the space needle and higher for better views
Most people go to the Space Needle to have a view of Seattle, but this tower is taller and gives you a much better view. It´s cheaper than the Space Needle. There is one disadvantage: the observatory is behind glass.
Twice the height of the space needle at half the price! The viewing area is spacious, has a snack bar (with coffee and espresso drinks), bathrooms, and no time limit. Go an hour before sunset and stay to watch the sun go down. A can't miss experience!
