AP, SEATTLE – Fifty years after the World’s Fair inserted the Space Needle into Seattle’s skyline, the city is celebrating that anniversary by offering an array of new things to see and do at Seattle Center. From a zip line to a new art glass museum.

Seattle’s 74-acre gathering place has been gradually reinventing itself for years, with a new opera house and a rock `n roll museum designed by Frank Gehry.

This year’s changes may be the most dramatic since the Experience Music Project opened in June 2000. The rides and games that have been around since 1962 have all but disappeared. Glass art, a sophisticated new restaurant, history displays and a temporary playground filled with blow-up toys have taken their place.
