“A must-see for anyone traveling to Gatlinburg!” - At the top of the historic Gatlinburg Space Needle, nature lovers, sightseers, and families from all over come together to enjoy iconic views.

This 407-foot observation tower overlooks downtown Gatlinburg and provides a stunning 360-degree view of the Great Smoky Mountains that will have you coming back every season!

Ride our glass elevators all the way up to the observation deck where you and your loved ones will enjoy a complimentary “Higher Learning” experience and free viewfinders that enhance the breathtaking scenery.

While you’re here, pop into Arcadia (located just below the Space Needle) to play over 200 redemption games and top-trending video games across more than 30,000 square-feet of fun! 

Once all this fun stirs up an appetite, stop by our Slice Pizza Bakery for a mouthwatering slide you’ll feel compelled to share in your next TikTok or Instagram story.

On your way out, don’t forget to visit our Gift Shop to pick up a special memento (or three) for yourself or a loved one. We can’t wait to see you during your visit!

“BEST views around! We’ve traveled to Gatlinburg many times and no matter what time of year it is the view of the mountains from the Space Needle is always beautiful.”
