We truly enjoyed the experience with SkyPass versus the online purchase of tickets for Anakeesta. SkyPass allowed us to enter the line ahead of most of the other people with regular passes and have unlimited access. The Christmas lights being up made it all the more wonderful for us and we would definitely go back.

The price for one time was $32 a person. The glass on the sky bridge was covered with a black Matt. When you get off you have a guy screaming like you must go check your pictures. There is one single open bathroom up on the whole area. A big disappointment from two years ago when the charge was less.

What a great experience this was! We are so glad that we made the trip and although it was cold, it was worth it! The line was long but went fast and people were so nice. Highly recommend the experience.

We did this more than anything to ride the lift. It's GROSSLY overpriced. There was next to nothing at the bar at the top. The sky bridge and the lift ride were the only good things. The staff was very friendly, they will ask you about wanting your photo at the bottom and the top of the list. The view was very nice but it wasn't worth the price for the experience. Parking can be tricky, look around, don't pay the $20 for the day unless you have to.

A little pricey for just riding up if you can’t quite muster the courage for walking the bridge. Otherwise it is a chance to shop, eat, take in the gorgeous views and relax.

This was a Bucket List item for me, so I did the footbridge and it was great! Mostly solid wooden planks, but the center of the bridge is glass so you can see down. The bridge does wiggle with the footsteps of the walkers and a little from the breezes, but isn’t as scary as I expected. Thank goodness!

After going across the bridge you do have options. Go back across, take a trail back, and/or go to the Tulip Tower. I did choose the extra exercise by taking the trail around and it was nice. Tulip Tower was cute and a bit of a scaled down version with its own two walk bridges. It still gave nice views of the mountains and was a great place to photograph the larger main bridge.

Gift shop was as expected with the standard fare. We did not eat anything there, so I can’t comment.

The sky lift is steeper I think than the one at Anakeesta, but you’re closer to the ground the whole time which makes it much less scary for those afraid of heights. I think it’s newer and felt very secure.

Honestly, it’s a nice place and a great place to kick back in the deck chairs and take in the views. After you’ve conquered the bridge and can sit back satisfied marking this one off your list!

My husband and I went on Thursday around 9am in early November. We parked right next to the exit (cost $20) and had no issues getting a spot since we were very early. Paid the $73 for (2) tickets on the Skylift to be able to walk across the skybridge. I think it was pricey but that was cheapest option since we only wanted to go up once. The skylift is quite steep but immediately quiet and a nice ride. The walk across the skybridge was a little disappointing but thrilling at the same time. I think I had believed it was a lot higher than it was but it was still a little unsettling to step on the glass portion. We immediately left the area as our only reason for coming was the Skybridge.

Went to see the sunrise at Skylift Park. Ride up the mountain was a lot of fun and we were given a tasty breakfast including a muffin, yogurt and fruit when we arrived. Only downside was it was a rainy day so not much of a sunrise but, obviously, not their fault. We still had fun walking across the suspension bridge and trail. I would definitely recommend...the views are amazing.

My wife and daughter both bought tickets in advance which I highly recommend since you can just skip the line and walk right in. You go up on the Skylift which is fun just in its self to get to the skybridge where you will see a spectacular view of the Smokey Mtns and Gatlinburg. Super friendly employees and be sure to get your picture at the top.

A must-see when you're in Gatlinburg!! It's a little 'pricey' for what you get but they're adding more. You go up in the Sky Lift to the 1,800-foot top. From there you can walk across the longest (700 ft) suspension bridge in North America...with a section of glass planking in the middle. There's also a tower accessible via suspended walkways, a trail, a gift shop (Of Course), and a small snack bar. The views are amazing, but go early it gets crowded fast.

Tourist ripoff. The views are amazing and the skybridge is a cool concept but it’s not worth $$$. There are far better places to get those views without that.
