My wife and three boys went to Anakeesta. What a cool place. We had a nice, scenic, lift ride overseeing Gatlinburg. When we got to the top there was a whole new adventure. Craft beer, zip lines, mountain coaster, more scenic beers, and a fantastic, economic, bar and grill. This

The dual zip line is a must!! We got to zip line under bear cubs that were up in the trees!!! There are three different lines and two rappels. Amazing views of the mountains and of downtown Gatlinburg! Daryl, Tatum and Zach (?) were the best guides! They were hilarious but

What you see in the advertisement is what you will see except the tree bridge is down because of a storm so you can't walk the entire length of the tree bridge and have to turn around and fight people walking back. Also, lots of construction going on therefore you have to walk

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the views and landscaping throughout the park. We appreciate your patience and understanding with the construction as we are working very hard to get everything completed to improve our guests experience. Due to unforeseen forces of nature, you are correct that part of the treetop walk is currently closed, but we wanted to still allow guests to experience part of the canopy as to not deprive you of this experience. We are hoping to have repairs completed soon so that you can once again fully experience this unique forest experience. Thank you for visiting the park.

This was our first time visiting Anakeesta and we will definitely do it again. Even during COVID-19 conditions, a strong thunder storm, and a large tree that took out more than half of the treehouse bridge walk, we still had a great time. Next time we will do the zip line - it

We are happy that you enjoyed your first experience at Anakeesta! This has definitely been a year with unforeseen circumstance so far and we are working hard to still give guests a wonderful day at the park. We can't wait for you to visit again to conquer our dueling zipline as well as enjoy the new expansion elements coming very soon. Thank you for visiting Anakeesta and for sharing your review!

Not alot to do for the price you have to pay. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They just don’t have a good product to entertain a family.

We are happy to hear that our staff was helpful and friendly during your trip as this is very important to us! We are disappointed however, to hear that you were unable to enjoy some of the features included in your admission like the Vista gardens, BearVenture, firefly village, memorial walk, treehouse adventure, and treetop skywalk. As part of our expansion guests will also enjoy a water play area in the plaza, firepit, music stage, AnaVista Tower, TreeVenture Challenge course as well as our Smokehouse restaurant opening this fall. We appreciate you visiting the park and hope you consider coming back later this year to explore these new features.
