The Sea Needle is a structure which is the tallest monument in Bikini Bottom. It makes its first appearance in "Prehibernation Week."



The Sea Needle is the tallest structure in Bikini Bottom. It likely serves the same purpose of an observation tower for the city. It is a parody of the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.


"Prehibernation Week"

It is the location where SpongeBob and Sandy fight on top of the point. They battle with cotton swabs. SpongeBob does not know much about fighting up high, but Sandy makes the first move and pushes SpongeBob down onto a fire hydrant. It is a popular tourist attraction because of its size.

Battle for Bikini Bottom

The Sea Needle is located in Downtown Bikini Bottom. It has been partially destroyed by Plankton's robots, some of which are still inside. Multiple Golden Spatulas can be found here.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game

It appears right before the player finishes Sandwich Driving 101 on the right hand side of the road.

Lights, Camera, Pants!

The Sea Needle is the last building in Bikini Bottom after the Sneaky Hermit steals all the other buildings. He is unable to steal it because of a giant lock on it. After getting to it, he battles the Dirty Bubble, Man Ray, Mermaid Man, and Barnacle Boy on window washing platforms. He is defeated by Mermaid Man who uses some pepper, which makes the Sneaky Hermit sneeze, causing him to fly into the sky and drop the buildings he stole.

The Yellow Avenger

The player has to defeat the Jumbo Shrimp and Dirty Bubble on top of the Sea Needle.
