Here you will experience the absolute best view in the city, as well as be immersed into Gatlinburg’s premiere entertainment headquarters. This 407-foot tall observation tower was completed in 1969 and has since attracted hundreds of thousands of guests, the 360 degree views of the mountains are worth the trip every single time! Enjoy the safe and comfortable smooth glass elevator ride along the 400-foot trip to the top, providing you and your group with unequaled panoramic views of Gatlinburg beauty year-round!
Besides the great views, your group will also enjoy an information-packed experience, with many exhibits and educational features rich in facts about the city and the surrounding mountains. If you think the view is great during the day, wait till you see them at night!
After you’ve seen all you can head to the base fun center at Arcadia, the 25,000 square foot two-story playground filled with the latest video and redemption games. There is also the attached Iris Theater with some of the most unique local shows, as well as the delicious Slice Pizza and Bakery when you finally work up an appetite.
