This is one of my favorite things to do in Gatlinburg! Its not expensive and I love taking pictures. A "Must-Do" attraction in Gatlinburg. They have a small gift shop at the top with even more opportunities for photo ops. Going down at dusk is just the best. Its not totally dark and but you can still see all the... More

The views from the Sky Lift are beautiful!! Especially when you get to the top, it's awesome. It's really nice because they have plenty of chairs, tables and benches to sit at and relax once you reach the top! The only downside is that it's a little pricey!!

I have to say I was a little afraid at first going up the side of a mountain with only a bar holding me in but once I got on I have to say that was the best decision I have ever made to get on! The ride was smooth. The view was fantastic. I even got my picture taken... More

I have rode this sky lift so many times. This was the first visit to Gatlinburg with my husband. We enjoyed the ride and the view. Done this since I was a young girl. Will do it every time I come to Gatlinburg. Thanks for the memories!!

The view from the top was amazing but the only thing up there is a little shop and they take your picture on the way up so you can buy it at the top. They price to ride it was $15.50 per an adult.

We rode this after dark and the experience was wonderful. The lights were great and it was a nice time to be with my Sweetie. The staff was great. I would recommend.

Pleasant ride and good view from the top but at $15 this is a bit of a rip off. Also was expecting more at the top - i.e. To be able to walk around a bit - but all there is up the top is a small viewing platform and a gift shop.

$15 is a bit much (and for $10 more you can get a jar of moonshine lol) but your on vacation and probably only going to see it once. The view is amazing.
