Space Needle
115 Historic Nature Trail Gatlingburg TN

The iconic Gatlinburg Space Needle is a 407′ observation tower that overlooks breathtaking views of downtown Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. Ride a glass elevator to an observation deck for a 360° view.


Once you get on the elevator it’s a 8 minute ride up to the top. On top, there are interpretive signs detailing each mountain by name and free viewfinders for dialing in for a closer look.

They have taken measures to keep people socially distanced and COVID safe.

A ticket gets you two rides to the top of the space needle.
