Towering almost 417 feet above Pigeon River, the Gatlinburg Space Needle offers the city's highest high, literally! Once you have reached the top by way of elevator, you can see a full 360 degrees around.
The Needle is open during the day and into the evening, so you can see the Smokey Mountains majesty both day and night. The Needle is also host to the New Year's Eve Balldrop and Fireworks Show. Come celebrate the New Year with an average of 40,000 other people from all parts of Tennessee and the United States.
The Space Needle also has a Family Fun Center! Bring the kids and play some Laser Tag against each other, or enjoy the thrills of the Virtual Reality Roller Coaster ride. There is also an arcade with air hockey, pool tables and the latest arcade games. You can also play on the 18 Hole Mini Golf, have an Old Tyme Photo taken, or grab a snack at the concession stand and eatery. Located right across the street from the Convention Center, the Gatlinburg Space Needle is easy to find and fun to visit!
