The sky lift was very good. We went up once and then found out for 4 dollars more you could have an all day ticket. We went up in daylight and also at night. I would suggest doing this. It worth the time and money.

I couldnt wait, I was going to do it on the Space needle. But the day was beautiful the view was amazing and she was too worth it. The view is amazing, you ride to the top and you can stay up there and enjoy the view as long as you'd like. Don't drop anything! Cause I doubt you'll get... More

This is a great way to get a view of Gatlinburg and the Smokies. The ride up is smooth and there is a great view at top. You can purchase your photo and they have a small gift shop. Of course it costs a bit, but is worth doing at least once.

Really nice. My fiance and I took this ride. It was very peaceful and it takes your picture at the top. The view up top is really amazing and would recommend to any couple.

The ride is smooth and peaceful. Great views all around. A little pricey. A positive thing for me is that they let me take my little doggie every time. The pictures available at the top let us see our changes at least twice a year.

I've been on this three times now. This last time was at night and it was beautiful. I highly recommend it to everyone. Even if you are afraid of heights, you will quickly forget it once you see the stunning views. Going up is not that bad as all you can really see is the mountain in front of you.... More

Yes, it is just a skylift, up the side of a mountain...but it is peaceful, and provides great views. If you are new to the Gatlinburg Area, you have to try it, just once. If you are afraid of heights, it's not as high as you think. Don't forget to smile when you get to the top! They only shoot... More

Took my 5 year old and it was exciting for her. My simple advice is to do it at least once. I look back and am glad I did it. The only thing else to say is expect to pay. I spent $24 for me and my 5 year old. Maybe that is par for the course, but I don't... More
