Up to the mountain top

Gentle ride and at the top of the ,mountain you can shop for souvenirs and get something to eat & drink. However, watch out for the bees. They stay very close to the slush drinks.

The sky lift was a really enjoyable experience particularly as we did it as the sun was setting. I am not a fan of heights but due to the fact that the lift travels up the side of the mountain you are never that far from the ground below. It takes about 15 minutes to travel up. You have to...

We rode the ski lift down into Gatlinburg, had dinner at Five Guys burgers and rode it back up to Ober Gatlinburg. It was fun to see the mountains from the sky! I highly recommend it!

Get your photo at the top when you are done. Kind of cheesy but makes the experience fun. Great for scenic views, I am betting this would be great in the fall. It is something fun to do.

We have scenic ski lifts at home in New York that will take us up but it's a one hour drive, at least, to get there. This Sky Lift, however, is located right on the main strip of shopping and eateries in Gatlinburg! It's a nice way to break up the heat of the day by taking in the beautiful... More

$16.50 a parson for the Gatlinburg Skylift? Really? This is a nice scenic ride up and down the mountain with great Gatlinburg scenic views, but at $16.50 a person I am not going to do this attraction again.

Have rode this several times. It is getting high in price though. Not that exciting for the price. Nice view.

We happened to see the Sky Lift while driving through town and thought we would give it a try. There were 10 of us and we all thought it was well worth our time and money. There was a small shop at the top. We bought tickets to ride twice, so we rode once in the day time and once... More

The ride was fun, it was a bit scary at first then you get use to it. There's a gift shop at the top were you can view your picture that was taken (there is a fee). The view from the top is beautiful we rode at night so we saw all the city lights The cost is 16.50 for... More
