April 2012 was the 50th anniversary of the Space Needle. April began a six month celebration remembering the World’s Fair, and the opening of the Space Needle. The first day started with admission to the top of the Space Needle for $1 per person – the same price as when it first opened in 1962.
Cory and I took the boys down around 8 am and waited in line. It was the first time the boys had been to the top – and while Cody loved it, Gavin was a little leery of being that far off the ground.
Many thanks to the random stranger who offered to take our photo.
After walking around the outside and taking photos from all sides, we went inside, bought the boys soda in overpriced space needle cups, and found a table to sit at.
Then we wandered around the EMP and the boys ran off some extra energy.
