320 viewsIn 1982 The SkyLine level was added to the tower at the 100 feet (33 m) level. The original plans for the Space Needle included a structure at this level, but it was not added until 20 years later. Today, the SkyLine Banquet Facility can host groups from 20-360 people. In 1974, author Stephen Cosgrove's children's book Wheedle on the Needle postulated a furry creature called a Wheedle who lived on top of the Space Needle and caused its light to flash.
