7 Really Bad Yelp Reviews Of The Space Needle
The Space Needle in Seattle, Wash., is an iconic landmark that draws legions of sightseeers. Having the Space Needle in the background of your photo is one for the Instagrams, Facebooks, and TikTok videos. You can either take a selfie of it behind you or ask a stranger to snap your photo with your phone. Or you can do the touristy thing and pay to go up the elevator and walk around on the top level and ooh and ahh at the views.
I wondered if there were any reviews of The Space Needle on Yelp and sure enough, there are. You can read through some 3,111 reviews, some of the over 3,000 reviews of the Space Needle are very complimentary but the meaty comments are the ones with a 1-star rating.
One complaint that keeps coming up over and over in the bad reviews of the Space Needle is that tourists don’t realize the “time” that is stamped on your ticket to the Space Needle is the time you are supposed to go wait in line for the elevator. Once you get past that, there will likely be more wait time as you watch the minutes go by until it’s your turn to go up.
When I took my then 3-year-old daughter to visit in 2015, our experience was fun and quick. Judging from these bad 1-star Yelp reviews, we were very lucky because we didn’t have to wait very long to go up to the top of the Space Needle.
FUN FACT: The Space Needle is 605 feet tall.
