Gatlinburg Space Needle#6 in Best Things To Do in Gatlinburg
This 407-foot tower overlooks the town of Gatlinburg and offers 360-degree views of the Smoky Mountains. The observation deck is equipped with viewfinders and educational exhibits that detail the history of the town and the surrounding mountains. Arcadia, a 25,000-square-foot arcade with video games and a playground is also located here, as are the Iris Theater and Slice Pizza.
While most visitors agreed that the view from the observation deck was unbeatable, many thought the attraction was overpriced. However, recent guests appreciated that the admission included a second free visit, allowing visitors to take in the view by day and by night.

Discounted individual tickets are available online for $8.99, with more significant savings on the family pass ($22.99), which includes admission for two adults and two children (12 and younger). If you purchase your tickets at the attraction, prepare to pay $9.50 for an individual ticket and $29 for the family pass. All tickets include two visits within a 24-hour period.
