“Beautiful gardens and great memories”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Well it isn't a major theme park but when you research the history and listen to the narration in the park you will respect the enormous devotion and imagination that went into this attraction. I have many great memories of a visit when Rock City first opened its fairytale village and I hope to bring my grandchild to share the same. I had a wonderful time. The staff are so very polite and caring. Go you will not regret it.

“Beautiful natural wonder”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

We toured the entire site in a few hours. The well-kept property delighted at every turn. Tons of photo ops. The iconic "See Rock City" signs all over the southeast give wise advice. It is well worth it. Amazing views. A good time!
