  • Love it💖 although we didn't do much while visiting Gatlinburg, I did enjoy the skylift to the top of the mountain, mustering up courage to cross the glass bridge & reading up on the history of the...  more »
  • We enjoyed our experience with the Skylift Park. Lots of places to sit and look at the views and places to buy drinks or snacks. The bridge was fun and not scary at all. Loved riding in the chairs...  more »

  • It’s such a fun way to see the town. It is a little pricey but you get access to ride it all day. The shop and sitting area at the top was so relaxing and nice. The bridge seemed scary at first but I walked through and it was cool.
  • Loved it. Super clean and new. The bridge is really fun and if you go in the evening you may well see bears. The lifts are nice and new the staff is friendly and fun. They do a real nice job. The night time views are amazing
  • This was SO COOL! I was a bit nervous about my kids on the ski-lift, but the bridge itself was great. Really incredible views of Gatlinburg and the mountains. There's a photo map so you can try to pick out different landmarks. The glass portion of the bridge was a big hit with the kids, too.
  • The place is so awesome, i was there last year and the bridge was not there yet. This year due to Dorian we had to go back but best believe it was the best adventure so far till today. I would gladly recommend it because it’s so fun .
  • The ride up on the lift is really neat. Once you're up, there isn't a whole lot to do. You can go across the bridge which is packed with people inching across for some reason. The bridge does sway quite a bit! There is a tiny concession stand with drinks on the other side. Then you have to walk back. Exiting the bridge area takes you through a restaurant/bar/cafeteria. There is also outdoor seating in the nice patio with, of course, an amazing view. So, yes, really amazing view, but not much else.
