When they rebuilt, they upgraded the chairs and they seem safer. Be interesting to see what they build at the top, continuous round trip ride for now.

The view from the top is spectacular, and you will be getting exactly what you pay for. Don't expect any extra frills, but it was a relaxing ride for the 25 min or so we spent on it.

Most beautiful view! So glad I did this even though I'm scared to death of heights. It is worth the trip.

The Sky Lift is a lot of fun and a staple of the main strip in Gatlinburg. It has wonderful views from the chairs that can seat three adults comfortably. Since they recently rebuilt it, we were not able to get off at the top...More

Buy the all day pass! I like it better than Anakeesta if not zip lining. Anakeesta makes too many stops.

Taking a quick trip up and down the lift is one of the mainstays of a Gatlinburg vacation. Since the 2016 fire, there is no longer anywhere to stop at the top right now, but the ride is enjoyable and the views are quite nice....More

I would say close to 40 to 50 feet. The spots varies.

Yes, I believe it is pregnancy friendly! It's a very smooth ride to the top then right back down to the bottom no bumping or anything. The chair is very comparable to a ski lift with a bar in front of you

I was just there and saw tons of kids, but at a certain age, I'm sure they have to be accompanied with an adult. (probably 12 and under) But, it's a perfectly safe ride for all ages.
