The Space Needle celebrates 50 years

History, Local News


The Space Needle’s 50th anniversary is this Saturday, April 21, and they’re going retro in more ways than their Galaxy Gold roof. The doors open early (7:30 AM!) with $1 admission, the original price in ‘62, while supplies last.

Tickets will be good for a 1-hr time block. Supplies are limited and tickets will sell out fast, so arrive early to secure admission. Then stick around for the ‘60s DJ, retro-souvenirs, and photo opportunities with “Elvis.” For a small donation, visitors can also enjoy a special Space Needle 50th Anniversary donut, created by Mighty-O Donuts. Come celebrate with us!
