I think it was a great view of the town and mountains, but the charge to ride a ski lift up the mountain is a bit steep especially since the only thing up there is a gift shop and a ride back down. You can drive up the mountains and pull off at one of the viewing locations and get... More

It's a bit pricey, but the view makes it worthwhile. Don't expect much at the top except for the view. the gift shop sells JUNK......My boys love it and again, the view makes it a must do.

This was the first thing we did when we arrived in Gatlinburg -- great way to see the place from above! 2 of us were a bit nervous of the height, but that was quickly forgotten. It is a smooth, peaceful ride up the hill. Smile at the top for your photo!! At the top, there is a little gift... More

Great view, doesn't take long and isn't too painful on the wallet. Stop by and check it out. We have a great pic from the top to remember the trip by as well.

Love the view of Gatlinburg and I'm very afraid of Heights. Not bad going up not coming down. I hear for a few dollars more we could have gotten all day tickets. That's ok, we WILL be back.

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.
