Peak Colors of the Great Smoky Mountains can be seen from the top of the skylift, and is a fun, picturesque experience.

This was top on our list and it was more than I expected. Beautiful view. We were able to sit 2 adults and one child in one seat. Steady ride not bumpy or scary.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the sky lift. It was a nice break from walking around. Just relax and enjoy the view. It started to snow when we got to the top which was awesome since we don't get to see that at all back home. The view is great wether it's snowing or not.

Most of our family went on this ride up the mountain. They said that the view was incredible from the top. The sky lift ride was fun for our granddaughters, and there were benches for the rest of us to use while waiting for them to return. Allow at least 30 minutes.

This is a fun experience. The views at the top are amazing, the ride itself is a little steep on the way down! It's a neat experience, just wish there was a bar or a restaurant or something at the top, haha! Overall, I would recommend this.

A nice ride to the top with a beautiful view. A fun thing to do for couples or pairs as it is a two seater. Cute gift shop up top.

We do this every time we go to Gatlinburg. Very pretty at night. A little overpriced though. We went during the day once and it was very hot! They take your picture and you can purchase the print at the top.

Fun for kids if they aren't scared of heights. My kid loved it the second time. He went last time a year ago. Views are amazing. Probably will do this every time we return.

As you start your ascending trip to the top you realize how beautiful Gatlinburgh is from a higher position. From the top it is a wonderful view.
