What is there to do?

Family owned and operated, The Gatlinburg Space Needle is a very impressive observation tower that will give you a view of Tennessee like you have never seen before!

Kids, you can just imagine what the birds see as they are soaring over the Great Smoky Mountains! In fact, you get 360 degree views!

Standing at 407' high, you'll be able to see Mount LeConte, the tallest mountain in eastern USA, and also the changing colors of the forestry with each season!

Keep your eyes peeled as you might even see some wildlife - including those illusive black bears!

Also onsite at the Needle is Arcadia, a 25,000 square-foot, two-story playground with the latest video and redemption games including the area’s largest redemption center. Pretty cool!

The Gatlinburg Space Needle also offers a free SeeCoast view finder, where you can observe all the amazing features which emanate from the Smokies in close visual proximity. See the blooming flowers, the pristine creeks, and a host of other natural wonders!

Just don't forget your camera kids, as you will need it!

A fun experience in one of the most beautiful parts of the USA, where kids can enjoy only see the sights, but enjoy a learning experience too!
