With some visitors in town recently, I made another trip up the Space Needle. They have finally finished to refurbishment of the area at the top of the tower and it is a pretty cool job that they have done. The glazing around the balcony area is finished as is the floor area inside. There is also now a stairwell to take you down to the next level. This has been refurbished to create a glass floor for a ring around the whole floor. This glass floor rotates. I imagine this is where the restaurant was when the Space Needle first opened. It gradually cranks around and it gives you a fantastic view downwards.
Apparently there will be a refurbished restaurant next year which, I assume, will be in the section a third of the way up the tower (since I can’t see where else it would go). The new floor is really cool though. Having been up a couple of times recently, I thought I wouldn’t have much new to see, but the addition of this element really gave me lots of new things to look at.
