Gatlinburg Space Needle
Two glass elevators ascend more than 400 feet to an observation deck at the top of the Gatlinburg Space Needle. Built in 1969, this Gatlinburg landmark offers 360-degree views of the surrounding Smoky Mountains and downtown Gatlinburg below.
At the base of the Space Needle, video arcade games and redemption games fill the two-story, 25,000-square-foot arcade, aptly named Arcadia. Games like Skee-ball, air hockey, billboards and pinball are featured, and Arcadia claims to have the best ticket-redemption prizes in Gatlinburg.
Other family-friendly attractions at the Gatlinburg Space Needle are the Lazer Runner laser tag game, Wild West-style portraits at Old Tyme Photos, the Flying Saucer Italian Bistro and a souvenir gift shop.
