This was quite expensive for the amount of time you were on the chair lift - probably about a dollar a minute. The view coming back down was good, but quite dull on the way up.

We enjoyed the ride up the mountain but the way down the views are great. The our next trip we want to ride at night. This is worth the money it cost.

By far this is the best sky lift into. G burg has a new one but is not as nice. The view is wonderful and staff delightful. Have gone on this every year when vacationing. It is a must do.

I took my granddaughters on this ride, and we couldn't all ride together. The 8 yr. olds wanted to ride together, and it was great! I was right behind them, and everyone had a smooth ride and enjoyed the lovely views of Gatlinburg.

Good activity as long as heights don't bother you. Not for families with small children there is a height requirement.

Due to the 2016 fires it's not the same. You can no longer have your picture taken as you approach the top, nor can you get off at the top to observe the views. There's nothing left at the top of the mountain due to...More

Three of us fought down our fear of heights and took a ride on this - it was worth it! Beautiful views of downtown Gatlinburg and the surrounding mountains. The scars of the terrible fire are still very much in evidence (this ride was actually...More

Last year, they had a bad fire and it destroyed the sky lift and they are rebuilding and currently you are only able to ride up and back down, with no stops.
