Space Needle From Seattle Turned Into A Giant Slingshot From Angry Birds

The Space Needle is a tower in Seattle, Washington and is a major landmark of the Pacific Northwest region of 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. The Space Needle is 605 feet (184 m) high at its highest point and 138 feet (42 m) wide at its widest point and weighs 9,550tons. When it was completed it was the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River. It is built to withstand winds of up to 200 miles per hour (89 m/s) and earthquakes of up to 9.1 magnitude, which would protect the structure against an earthquake as powerful as the 1700 Cascadia earthquake. The tower also has 25 lightning rods on its roof to prevent lightning damage.

The Space Needle features an observation deck at 520 feet (160 m), and a gift shop with the rotating Sky City restaurant at 500 feet (150 m). From the top of the Needle, one can see not only the Downtown Seattle skyline, but also the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, Elliott Bay and surrounding islands. Photographs of the Seattle skyline often show the Space Needle in a prominent position, even appearing to tower above the rest of the city’s skyscrapers, as well as Mount Rainier in the background.

 


The lost underground city of Seattle

If you are fond of tour, then city of Seattle should be one of the best places to visit for you. Before 1889 it was an affluent city. But a fire destroyed the whole city in that year. But the struggling citizens of that city rebuild the city over the wreckage of the destroyed city. So still there is the ruined city under the new city. This spectacular spot of a wrecked city was first opened for the mass people in 1965. Still now every year millions of people pay visit to that underground city.

A visitor can see some sign of the late 19th century life of that city which is still there after that fire work. It is really an extraordinary experience to have a look on this underground wrecked city. To have some idea on this magnificent city you can visit to the website through the link given here under.
