Gatlinburg Space Needle
Best View in Gatlinburg
The Gatlinburg Space Needle Family Fun Center is an attraction to visit for the whole family. No matter what age, there’s something for everyone. On our recent trip to Gatlinburg, we checked out the view from the Space Needle. On your way up, you ride in a big glass elevator. The platform at the top does sway a little but you get used to it…not!
The views from the elevator and the top platform are really incredible. You get a great 360 degree view of the Smoky Mountains and the City of Gatlinburg. One of the best parts is that you can stay up as long as you want. Plus, you get tickets to take the ride twice.
I would suggest picking a nice clear daytime trip and then save your next ride for the evening. It is quite a scene to see all the city lights. We did get some great pictures on both trips. Of course, the great views aren’t the only thing the Gatlinburg Space Needle has to offer. The kids were thrilled by the huge multi-level fun center at the base of the Space Needle.
There’s an impressive arcade, with video games, air hockey, pinball, foosball, punching bags, and lots of other arcade options. You can get tickets for prizes from games you play and they even have some games for small children. There’s also a laser tag center which can be a lot of fun for the whole family.
We also checked out the an old time photo shop at the Gatlinburg Space Needle where you can dress up and get your own souvenir picture. If you’ve ever wanted to know what you and your family would look like as cowboys or bank robbers, this is a great place to stop, and the photos are great souvenirs to take home.
After that, be sure to check out the virtual reality roller coaster. It might not be a real roller coaster, but it definitely feels like one. It has a space theme, and is a great experience.
