This ride is relaxing and very enjoyable with amazing views. The only beef I have is that it was way too expensive for the short ride and not much to do on top but look and shop.

I visited here with friends awhile back and we thoroughly enjoyed the views from the chairlift and overlooking everything at the top. Prayers are being sent for everyone there and hopes of blessed recovery.

Drove by yesterday and all the cars where sagging as the observation deck and the building houses up top where obliberated by Fire, Im sure looking at it that the entire thing will need to be dismantled and rebuilt as the towers going up went through extreme heat and the bearings and wheels are probably all warped, not to mention...

Road the lift on Nov 26th at 3pm. The view was spectacular. No smoke visible from widfire at that time. Highly suggest spending money on this and take as many pictures on the way up & down as you take at the top. Many things we have photos of disappeared 2 days later in the fire (Nov 28th 2016)

It's too beautiful not to ride. Taste test the moonshine ( just test) and it settles the "height nerves". It's well worth it.

We LOVE the sky lift! We do it every trip! It's fun and the view is great! We like to go up about 30 minutes before dark and then stay for a while after the sun goes down. Get to view daylight and the city lights! You can get an unlimited ticket for multiple rides up and down in one... More

Beautiful views and good deal. $20 per person for unlimited rides during the same day. We rode during the day and then again at night. Gorgeous! It's $15 per person for 1 trip.

I always make sure to take a relaxing ride on the Sky Lift. Gatlinburg is so pretty and you have a front row seat to all it's beauty.

Riding the chair lift is a great experience, but $85 for a family of 6 was a little nuts! The ride up and down are gorgeous, but not much different than the views you can get from some of the scenic overlooks for free while driving around. At the top, the space is small and you have to wait to... More
