The Tower

The Tower

Enjoy a bird's eye view of Chattanooga from atop our observation deck on our amazing tower. The entrance to the tower is on the second level, past Buzz Alley and the Bee Garden. The 52-stair spiral staircase will take you up to the observation deck which overlooks downtown Chattanooga. The Lookout Tower is made up of 38,000 pounds, or 19 tons, of steel and sits on a 18 foot tall concrete base, making the total height 60 feet. The tower underwent a major renovation in the Fall of 2018.
