“TERRIFIC VIEW”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

My husband and I had been to Gatlinburg countless times but had never been up in the Space Needle. For $20, we each got 2 trips over a 24 hr period.. We went up first at night which is a breathtaking experience. The next day we went up to get the daytime view. It was well worth the money to be able to take in this fantastic view. Parents beware: the elevator exits directly into the heart of the arcade..

“Amazing view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Decided to try this with my daughter! If you're afraid of heights, I wouldn't recommend it! The worst part to me was the elevator ride up! Once we reached the top, we had an awesome view of Gatlinburg! It was a beautiful day so we could see miles around! Makes the city look small when your so high up!!

“Pick your view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

You have several choices to see everything from the top. This, the wheel, the cable chair ride, the tram cars. This was how we chose to see it, went twice. Day and night. Tickets good for 24 hours.
