Description: Ready to jump? Explore the iconic Seattle Space Needle like never before. See the Seattle skyline from a new perspective. Bungee jump from the top and enjoy the adrenaline rush from the comfort of your own home. With this experience, you’ll also get a peek into areas restricted from public access. This version doesn’t include the renovations.

Review: While I kind of see how someone might enjoy Space Needle VR I also know this isn’t the best way to go about promoting this iconic tourist trap. They could have given us a REAL 360 view from the top, instead, they didn’t. They could have given people an education of the history and controversy surrounding the building and the ownership of the tower itself, but they didn’t. They could have done so much more and yet failed to make any real effort. Thanks do go to Expedia for trying, but there are far better virtual tours of buildings out there and even if it is free it lacks a lot of the things you might expect.
