Really enjoyed the view from the top, I would be too nervous to bring children along with me on this one but great for couples.

Secure ride, outstanding view, best sightseeing value for the buck! Make a memory by dressing in a favorite outfit with your sweetheart and *SMILING* during the photo op near the top, or ride the sky lift with friends and have them sit ahead of you with your camera and photograph you by turning around. There are snacks and souvenirs waiting... More

Since the spring of 70, we have taken a ride on the "danged" ski lift and loved it when we had our son, we took him and used the pictures as Christmas presents. Now that we are decrepit, we've not been able to jump into the chairs but we have our pictures to remember. I rode the chair lift when... More

My mother and I took my 4 y/o on the Sky Lift and it was a nice quiet ride up the mountain and back down. It did start sprinkling rain on us on the ride down, but that was okay... at least it wasn't a downpour. It is something nice to do, gives you a break from walking and lets... More

This is only one thing to do in Gatlinburg just walking up and down the city is great. Great rib restaurants and plenty of free liquor testing

The chair lift is very relaxing. Our son really enjoyed the experience. On top of the mountain is uplifting and the views are fabulous. There is also several benches and a bluegrass band. Very entertaining and worth every penny. This is a good attraction for families or couples.

My son & I have rode the Sky Lift for 11 years now. We LOVE it but boy it's expensive. $30 for 2 people is quite extreme. Still love it though & always will.

My husband and I took this sky life at night and it was great! Awesome views of the city at night. It was simply gorgeous. We had done the ober gatlinburg one a few days before during the day time and it was pretty also but this one at night was hands down better!
