Train / Monorail / StreetCar, Seattle: 51 reviews and 85 photos
In 1994, since my hotel was up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I used the monorail once to get to downtown Seattle. I thought it was something that I should do as it was one of the icons of Seattle, plus it was a convenient link from Seattle Center, home of the Space Needle, Pacific Science Center, the Experience Music Project to downtown Seattle. The Seattle Center Monorail was built for the 1962 Seattle World's Fair
The Seattle Center Monorail currently is open Monday through Friday: 7:30 AM to 11:00 PM, Saturday and Sunday: 8:30 AM to 11:00 PM.
The Seattle Center Monorail departures every 10 minutes from two stations:
Seattle Center station, across from the Space Needle
Westlake Center Mall station, at Fifth and Pine Street
Each trip takes two minutes to travel the 1 mile route.
When we came to Seattle in 2011, I picked a hotel at the Westlake Center (Mayflower Park) and we took the monorail up to the Space Needle for dinner. As seniors, we paid $2.00 each for the round trip. The station at the Westlake Center was just about the same, but there was new construction at the other end (photo 4). We could see the monorail from the Space Needle (photo 5). The view from 1994 is photo 2.
