  • Great view of the valley. Visited in the morning and went back after dark. Very good telescopes for adults but too tall for young children.  more »

  • Awesome views of Gatlinburg.. Nd Slice Pizza OMGosh its so Delicious. The gals working there always wearing thier smiles..
  • It's fun to try one together the view. But the elevator going up is kinda slow and creepy. I would recommend if it's your first time to Gatlinburg.
  • Pretty cool for real. Could use some updating, and you know they could afford it.
  • This place has one of the largest arcades I've seen and it wasn't terribly hard to get tickets for prizes either. The Slice Pizza Bakery was fantastic. I don't think I've ever had a better slice if pizza, not to mention how big they are. This place was wonderful.
  • Eh, there are some arcade games that are kind of fun. But skip the needle and drive up on the gatliburg bypass for views
