Space Needle New Year's EveLooking for ideas for celebrating New Year’s Eve?  Seattle Center is home to some of Seattle’s premier attractions – there are many activities taking place on Seattle Center grounds for New Year’s Eve!

Here is a list of some of the celebrations taking place to ring in the New Year!

On December 31. 2013, the Monorail will be open until 1:00 AM for the New Year’s Eve fireworks at the Space Needle.  Due to regulations, the Monorail will carry its last passengers from Westlake Center to Seattle Center at approximately 11:15 PM. We will resume service from Seattle Center to Westlake Center once we receive the ‘ALL CLEAR’ from the Fire Marshall (estimated to be 12:20 AM) – from this point we will carry passengers until 1:00 AM.

The Seattle Center Monorail will reopen on New Year’s Day (January 1, 2014) from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM.  Children 12 and under can ride the Monorail for free from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM on New Year’s Day.
