both teenage boys really liked this. Yes, you just ride to the top, look around and come back down. BUt great views from the top. Safe for small children as well. Usually line moves pretty fast.

We decided to do this as soon as we got here. It was around 10 o'clock at night, everything was lit up and the view was amazing. It takes you to the top of the mountain peak to a little souvenir store at the top of the mountain. You can purchase your picture that it takes of you on your... More

I remember going on this with my parents years ago & loved it! It has lost some of it's luster as they don't have much on top of the mountain to do except a great view of downtown Gatlinburg, A little pricey for it's value though?

As we slowly went up the mountain and I started to look around, the views were... More

It's become a little pricey to ride the skylift in Gatlinburg, but I consider it one of the "have-to-do" activities. It's relaxing and the view from the top is just gorgeous.

It was good, relaxing. The picture at the top isn't placed well, so it's hard to tell when it's your turn. There is a gift shop at the top. Not worth it again, but good to do once.

It was a little pricy for the lift but it was a nice view. Just a gift shop at the top. Got a cute picture of us going up.
