“Spring Break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

My wife, son and I took the sky lift up. It was so much fun. A little scary at first, but it was awsome views. I would definitely recommend this to anyone not extremely afraid of heights. I thought it was a little expensive for the length of time on the lift.

“Snow ride so cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

We rode the ski lift when it was snowing. That was a blast. Got to the top and stayed for a while in the gift shop and then we walked around outside while it snowed to take pictures. Snowing so hard we could not see the city below. So cool. Rode back down thru snow and loved it. How often can you do something like that.

“Beautiful Views of Gatlinburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

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.

“Gouging tourists like every other attraction..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

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.
