It cost nearly 20 dollars to ride up the mountain on old weak cables. Broken lift bodies laying in site. Scared for my life. You can drive to the top and see the same view free

Took my 10 year old niece up on the sky lift. I've been many times. She loved it. The view at the top is spectacular. There's a gift shop up there of course. It's worth the cost. If you've never rode it, do it.

We really liked this sky lift. It was a slow ride and the views were fantastic. The little store and sitting area at the top allowed for a nice sit and sip and view of the city away from the hustle and bustle of the strip.

Take the sky ride to the top, passing many log homes on the mountainside. Attractions at the top. Lovely view of the "downtown" area for the glass lift. Fun for all.

We were hesitant whether we could take our 2-year-old but everything went smoothly: the little one sat next to Daddy and enjoyed the ride.

Great ride to top of the mountain. Always ride it every time we visit .Get the all day only 3.50 more and ride all much as you want all day .We seen a small black bear last trip. Food and drink are pricey .But still nice.

Every time we come to visit GSMNP, we stop and take a nice relaxing ride on the Sky Lift. Yes, its pricey, unfortunately this is a tourist town and pretty much every thing you want to do will cost more than you think it should. However, I don't have mountains where I live so to me it is well worth... More

It is not the easiest event to slowly lift up to the mountains to see the world below. It was thrilling.
