Did this 10 yrs ago when my wife and I first got married and we just had to take our son on it. Still a great ride and the staff was great. They even slow down the lift to help my son get on

We went up at night, right before the sun set & the views were so beautiful! It's a great way to see the area.

It was just a few dollars extra to buy the all day passes and totally worth it. I think my son and I rode it 4x. It was really cool at night. The view is amazing from the top.

Good ride for relaxing. Could not get off due to fire in forest last year. Every thing about ride was new due to fire.

Will definitely bring the grandkids up here when they are old enough for the rides. The chairlift was a peaceful ride and a beautiful view from the top.

Everyone needs to include this sky lift in their visit! The workers were the nicest people. Although it seems pricey at first, it is completely worth it. The views are breathtaking, and it’s a nice break from walking around downtown.

We really enjoyed the SkyLIft. It affords a beautiful view of Gatlinburg. We bought the unlimited ticket (only $2 more). We are planning to go up again tonight after dinner.

For all day, unlimited rides, it's $13 for kids and $18 for adults. IMO, there's no better way to spend your money. It's so calm and relaxing, and when you spin around at the top and head back down, the views are amazing. Go during...More

Gorgeous ride, terrific guide who was funny, friendly and informative. Though it was shorter than expected, it was well worth the ride.

What a great place to sit back and relax, to take in the view and just breath. The trip takes you over the river, which is an added bonus, before you start up the mountain. Be sure to hold onto everything, because once it falls,...More

I'm sure there is, but don't remember whathe it is. The gondola holds only 2 to 3 adults, so that would limit your weight as well. It certainly isn't a small amount as we were in the 450 to 500 lb range.
