The anticipation of the climb on the lift was alittle more than I wanted but the views are great. Mountain air was great that day and over all it was average probably because of my nervousness.

The view was awesome. The only negative was trying to find parking. Once again took my family on this ride. Safe, secure and loads of fun.

It's a little pricey, for what it is, but worth doing at least once... There are some amazing views while you're on it. Does give your legs a rest and a moment to sit back and enjoy all the scenery...

Get a great view of the city at the top and the mountains. Night time is fun, but make sure it's a clear night, or all you'll see are light blobs! It's a little over priced, but what isn't in Gatlinburg. The picture is the only thing that there's a coupon for, so smile pretty! ;)

You get a nice ride up the hillside (I saw a chipmunk!) and then get to browse an expensive gift shop and look at the views, the views are good, the shop not so much...

So, all in all, it's OK,but $13? I think that would be OK for unlimited riding that day, but not for one round trip. You can upgrade to unlimited riding for another $5 (I think), but maybe only at night would you go again, knock $5 off the price and I think it may be a reasonable price.
