You can’t beat a view of the Great Smoky Mountains from 400 feet. The tower itself has a 360-degree view with educational exhibits rich in facts and history about Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains.
But that’s just the tip of the needle! In addition to the view, there’s lots to do on site.
Play, play, play and win at this huge two-story playground arcade with the latest video and redemption games. Delight in a vast variety of amusement games, simulators, and activities and redeem tickets at the redemption counter for cool prizes.
The Iris boasts live shows ranging from comedy to magic. You won’t find any bluegrass or overalls here, just good family fun.
Need a break from the country cuisine? Get a pizza or delicious calzone from Slice, which brings authentic Italian food and New York-style pizza to the Smokys.
