Nice way to see Gatlinburg - city and some of the mountains. Caught a nice breeze on a hot day too. Fun.

The views on the way up , at the top, and on the way down are fantastic. You can stay at the top as long as you wish, so take advantage of this.

A little pricey but a must see! Takes you to the top where you can see all of the strip and a beautiful view of the mountains. Get off at the top where there is a gift shop and you can eat/drink and check out the view. Definitely should get an all day pass ($3.95 more than regular ticket) so... More

This is located in downtown Gatlinburg. The Lift take you to the top of the "mountain" and gives you a great view of Gatlinburg. Once you get over the river, it is a very serene, quiet ride with woods on both sides. We really enjoyed this ride and will ride it again on our next visit.

This was so much fun. It was $15 for adults. It takes you up the mountain, where you can take pictures and spend money on souvenirs. You then go back down when ready. I must give a hint - do not wear sandals that can come off, or go barefoot. We saw several sandals that had fallen off and fell... More

We 've been to Gatlinburg many times but never took the sky lift. I recommend getting the all day pass to make it worth the ride. The view is great at the the top, but the ticket price is a little steep.

Went on this Sky Lift 33 years ago when we married. Brings back happy memories to share with our two kids.

We have done the sky lift 3 times now and it really is a beautiful view. I can't say I am a big fan of heights so I always get a little nervous but the view is breathtaking and so worth it! If you are in Gatlinburg this is a must do attraction!

I really enjoyed the view going down and up. Peaceful and gives you some perspective on how high you are really going. Don't lose your flip flops, lol. It was a bit pricey, but it is worth it to check out the awesome view from the top. And besides everything is overpriced in Gatlinburg, so by Gatlinburg standards it isn't... More
