The Space Needle was for Seattle's 1962 World's Fair -We went at dusk. No line- beautiful view- about $45.00 for the 3 of us to ascend.
There was enough light to still see the buildings, and as it got dark, the lights were beautiful.
Love the souvenir penny machines- We get them whenever available. I don't know if we ever manage to actually keep them- But, Chandelier assures me that they are someplace safe.
