great at night!

This is a ski lift type ride that climbs the mountain besides downtown Gatlinburg. We took it at night and the view was amazing. Lots of fun.

Paid alot of money to ride lift to the top. Once at top there was nothing but a gift shop at the top. Only enjoyment was coming back down with the mountains in the background

My boyfriend and I rode the skylift on a Friday night. It was beautiful. Very peaceful and romantic ride up the Moutaun in Gatlinburg.

This is a pleasant trip up the hillside but they make you get off at the top to run you through a souvenir shop. Still, it was sort of cool.

A nice slow ride to the top of the western mountain and reasonably priced. Nice view from the top. There's a store that has drinks and merchandise.

Fun for family with kids as it is a mild ride but no safety belts or net below, just a rod latch and a metal chair seating 2 adults with 1 or 2 lap kids. Saw even babies riding with adults. But adventure seeking kids might feel boring.
