The Gatlinburg Space Needle is an all steel observation tower served by two elevators with a capacity of 20 persons each. Ride our safe and comfortable glass elevators over 400’ to our observation deck for a 360° view of the Great Smoky Mountains and the resort city of Gatlinburg.

The view is an unequaled panorama of beauty year round which is only enriched with our free view finders. But, it’s more than a view; it’s also an information-packed experience thanks to the newest attraction at the Gatlinburg Space Needle—Higher Learning, an educational feature rich in facts and history about Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains.

Visit Arcadia, a 25,000 square-foot, two story playground with the latest video and redemption games including the area’s largest redemption center. No other Gatlinburg arcade can boast the quality and quantity of games and prizes offered at Arcadia. Nor can they offer the sheer size of the area we provide.

Enjoy Lazer Runner, a futuristic lazer tag game with unbelievably realistic graphics and special effects. Or, step into our Hurricane Simulator for the life like experience of braving through hurricane-force winds.

Also be sure to check out the amazing Gatlinburg shows at our Iris Theater - home of the Gatlinburg Mentalist, Guy Michaels, the best and funniest hypnotist in the Smokies, and A Brit of Magic with Keith Fields.

Also, be sure to check out OH! Zone, and if you get hungry, grab a slice of the best pizza in Gatlinburg at our Slice Pizza Bakery. As you leave, buy something for everyone back home at our Souvenir Gift Store.

The Gatlinburg Space Needle is the premier Gatlinburg attraction. We are your Gatlinburg entertainment headquarters. Open 365 days a year!
