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.

It is a great view. I buy the all day pass then go up as the day goes on into the night. AMAZING. After the sun set you can see all the lights of Gatlinburg. And during the daylight you can see all the mountains.

Rode the Sky Lift with the boyfriend and it was a great experience. The view is amazing you can see the mountains all around and also all of downtown Gatlinburg. We went during the day so the views were really impressive, not sure what its like at night though. When you get to the top you can get off and... More

Don't waste the money. $16.50 per adult to ride up the mountain and back down. At the top you can also buy a photo of you and your companion on the lift, which is also over priced. If you do ride do it at night, Gatlinburg looks really pretty light up.

My boyfriend and I rode the skylift on a Friday night. It was beautiful. Very peaceful and romantic ride up the Moutaun in Gatlinburg. At the top, we had a picture taken, we bought and will cherish forever. There was a gift shop at the top where we bought souviners for our family. Lots of seating where we sat and... More
