Love it! It's exciting and fun! If you are afraid of heights, then you can stand back. Exciting for kids and adults!

Our family visits Gatlinburg several times a year. The Space Needle has made noticable improvements. Even though the building is older, it is allot cleaner than the same time last year. There are more new games and there are more prizes that can be won. We will keep going back.

we thought it was good. good views from the top. yes the building is a little old & only one elevator is working but it is totally stable & not scary in any way. they also offer a 50% military discount so say if you are. also, the binocular stands at the top will just take your quarters so dont even try. just enjoy the view from the top. we recommend going up at dusk so you can enjoy both daytime & nightime views. worth the $10 bucks.

My family and I go to Gatlinburg each year...at least twice. We always go for the New Year's fireworks show from the Space Needle that is incredible, the area's best party.!
We just got back and we were amazed at the changes made to the Space Needle. ...'bout time!!! The tower has been painted and new lighting added. The arcade was rearranged with tons of new games and new ticket station. The redemption area had awesome prizes and the arcade itself is the biggest in the area.
They are remodeling the front of the building, bathrooms (cleaner than years past), etc. and the view can't be beat.
We had an awesome time and will definately recommend to our friends. The kids had a great time!!!
