Waitaminute - the photo makes me wonder - is your Satellite party going to be in the not-really-the-Space-Needle-goddamit lower level, or in the actual Space Needle tippy-top thing?

oh gloomy gus, you have such low expectations of us!

the o-deck/observation deck/orgasm deck (tm mike nipper)/The Very Top is where everybody gets to hang out -- the GA section, with DJs and performances and all that good stuff.

the skyline level is where the VIP cosmonauts lounge will be -- the most swanked out, spaced out lounge for VIPers only, with special exclusive performances by shunpike artists and genius award winners and a live soundtrack by zeke keeble and swag bags and open bars and basically the best thing $75 has bought you since 1962 when the needle was first needled.

Phew - thank you, alithea. I didn't mean to insult, it's just I'm a worrier.

Can I wear my Superman inspired dress if I am coming directly from Comic Con?

It's a killer deal, if you think about it.

Spring for the VIP tickets, folks. You'll end up spending the extra $40 on booze anyway, after your drink tickets are gone.

@4 of course! just make sure to make yourself a tin-foil hat at the tin-foil hat making station so you fit in with the rest of us.

@3 - I'm not even there, but I worried the same thing. Glad it's not the case. Does the O-level rotate as well? I haven't been up there since I was little.

I can only imagine the disappoint of each and every person who exists that elevator to their destination only 1/5 of the way up.

From this angle, it looks like the Space Needle is wearing a Borat costume.

@3 & 7

The O Deck is for all the partiers, VIP and General Awesomes. That's where we all go to make our "O" face.

If they pull that thing back and blow the lid off the Space Needle I'm going to be PISSED.

Are we sure this isn't something to do with Breast Cancer Awareness? Because that image makes it look like the Space Needle just had a mastectomy...

Wait -- isn't "Skyline Level" the name for that lower banquet room? That's the VIP deck?

Or am I misinterpreting the flashy nomenclature on the Space Needle's website?

That pink angry bird looks like a nipple.

My first thought was "ball gag".

@11 - it is true. Skyline level is way lower down in the Space Needle than the Observation deck. It's okay to feel sad about that, but once you see it your sadness will be radiated. We just got a new sponsored item for the VIP gift bags: http://www.greenwoodspacetravelsupply.co…
