Was on the fence of partaking in this attraction. But, glad we did. Was worth the $15. We went at dusk and the view/pictures were awesome.

Took the lift up the hill and the view was breath taking. Not a lot to do at top, just a gift store and some telescope things. Ride down was nice, but be careful if you wear loose flip flops. One of my granddaughters is on the side of the hill now. LOL :)

Not a bad ride up, surprised to see the setting uphill, few chairs and tables added a nice touch, I spent 30 minutes sitting on the top with the family. Refreshments available at a reasonable price. Enjoyed the way down, breathtaking view.

Been to Gatlinburg 3 times and we ride the sky lift every time we come. It's the best hands down. The view riding and at the top is unbelievable. My granddaughter couldn't get enough. She wanted to keep riding it. It's a blast.
