World’s First Revolving Restaurant Atop Seattle Space Needle Opened On This Day In 1961 [VIDEO]

Talk about futuristic! On this day in 1961 the world’s first revolving restaurant opened high atop the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington. Check out the view from 605 feet with this video.

Here’s more about the Space Needle from Wikipedia:

“The Space Needle is a (605.0 ft) observation tower in Seattle, Washington and a major landmark of the Pacific Northwest region of Canada and the United States and a symbol of Seattle. Located at the Seattle Center, it was built for the 1962 World’s Fair, during which time nearly 20,000 people a day used the elevators, with over 2.3 million visitors in all for the World Fair.”

Watch this video for the view you’d get at 605 feet in that revolving restaurant. Note: restaurant rotates once per hour, but this video was shot at 20 times normal speed.
