It is a great view, can pay an additional $4 to ride for the entire day! The photo taken at the top may need a sign letting you know where the snap is actually going to be taken from! No real bad complaint! Although the man on the top of the lift assisting you to get on the lift, was... More

I would recommend this ride on the sky lift. It's smooth and very uplifting. The scenery is fabulous. Bring your camera to take pictures of the beautiful mountains and landscape. There's a store at the top of the lift where you can buy souvenirs, snacks and drinks. You can stay as long as you want before standing in line for... More

Have taken a couple of rides on chair lift at night and the view is awsome. It's a nice relaxing ride to the top where you can get a snack , purchase a picture of your ride up or just enjoy the view.

Drove over to Gatlinburg, Tennessee from Helen, Georgia during a New Year's holiday with Anne, Sofia & Anna. Began with the first lift, then walked the gift shoppe atrium area and viewed the next lift bringing skiers to the top ( floor to ceiling windows ). You have to visit when they have a fresh snowfall for the best vision... More

This was an attraction we decided to do at night and it was well worth it. To see the town lit up at night was well worth it. When you get up at the top, you get to see the views of the smoky mountains and you get to see Gatlinburg. The ride was not to long either.

Smooth, quiet ride at a nice pace with no waiting. The view from the top was wonderful. The gift shop had a nice selection. One of the highlights of our trip.

Nice way to view Gatlinburg. We rode up and took pictures. That's all there really is to do at the top. There are bathrooms and a small store. For us it was relaxing and so worth the money.

We took the sky lift up at night and I was a little nervous, however the view was amazing! They take your picture on the way up and at the top is a gift shop, scenic viewing area, bathrooms, side of the building has great pictures of people on the Sky Lift, and wonderful places to take pictures. The view... More

One staff member taking us off the lift at the top, decides to blow out the loudest burp. And we have sons lol and this was disqusting. Sadly, he wasn't even embarrassed. The view is beautiful however and worth the ride up. Our son had never been in a ski lift before, so he loved it. Unfortunately the pictures were... More
