Gatlinburg Sky Lift

We enjoyed our sky lift visit -- the slow pace up the mountain is great, but the pay off is when you are headed down the mountain and seeing the waterway, the whole downtown area and the beautiful and grand Great Smoky Mountains. I can see where you might get a bit scared if you don't like heights... be sure to hold on to your cellphones! No lines when we were there and definitely a fun way to spend an hour or so during a visit to Gatlinburg.

But this one is nice bc it gets you away from the crowded sidewalks and smokers ( don't expect fresh mountain air in downtown Gatlinburg ) . It was peaceful and the views are great. Of course they try to get more $$ out of with a picture . Just ask someone to your photo with your own camera once at the top.

Thrilling, wild, and windy...it cost a total of $22.75 for one adult & one kid plus $12 for bragging rights (ie small photo). A lot of fun with bathrooms & gift shop at the top of the mountain.

Higher than Gatlinburg's space needle by a long shot (1800 ft for sky lift, 407 ft for needle)!

Let me begin by saying I'm TERRIFIED of heights, and therefore don't like either the ride up or the ride down. I have, however, been on the Sky Lift twice and can attest to the amazing scenery you see at the top--which is several hundred feet higher than the Space Needle. I believe it costs around $13/person (for adults), but I'd say the views are worth it.

Rode this for the first time in 1978, and have ridden several times over the years. It is a nice, slow ride up and back down the side of the mountain, and gives a great view. Have done this both in daylight and also with the nighttime view. They take a photo of you that you can purchase, for memories of the experience. And, there is an area to shop and eat at the top of the mountain. Definitely recommend.
