Ride to The Top of the Gatlinburg Space Needle

Located in downtown, the iconic Gatlinburg Space Needle is a 407-foot-tall observation tower that offers 360-degree views of Gatlinburg and the majesty of the Smoky Mountains. Ride the glass elevator to the observation deck where you'll take in panoramic views for miles. You'll also enjoy an educational experience that teaches you about the Smoky Mountains.
Once back down, enjoy arcade and video games in Arcadia or enjoy escape games at The Captured. Enjoy live shows and entertainment at the Iris Theater and or grab a bite at Slice Pizza Bakery, serving delicious Italian food and hand-tossed pies.
