“Night time sky lift”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Beautiful night view of Gatlinburg's city lights. A bit difficult to get off and on the lift. Worth the price. Interesting gift shop at the top of the lift.

“At night was nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Nice little ride ip the mountain. Once up there, nothing really to do, but take in sights. Gift shop was OK. hot chocolate not good. Ride back down was really pretty with all the lights of the strip. Not a must-do, but kids loved it.

“Great way to see Gatlinburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The sky lift is a great way to see Gatlinburg like you might not otherwise get to see it. I would definitely recommend a trip on it.

“By far the best view of the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Granted my beautiful wife has a fear of heights- however she took the sky lift alone! (time did not allow us to join her) She stated that this is the best way to view the beautiful city especially at night. Once you reach the top of the mountain- you get off and there is a shop where you can view the city and lights below. Awesome view! The lift is an ordinary ski lift that moves at a slow and steady pace. Wrap up because at night it is cold. I would not reccommend for really small children because it is only one bar in front of the lift. Children have to be able to remain really still for the lift. However there were some small children on the lift. Bottom line- full well worth the $13 fee- reduced rates for groups are available!

“Fun Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

My family and I did this a night which I think is the best time to do so. For those afraid of heights, nighttime reduces the visibility of distance you see below your feet - IMO. It was a fun little ride to the top where there was a gift shop and a Great view. The only drawback was that it is a little pricey, there is another one in town that is a bit cheaper.
