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 did it with my daughter. When we started she was a little bit afraid but in the end of the day she really enjoyed it. It is a round trip and you can get off of the chair. Great views from the city and...More

My kids really wanted to go up the mountain so I spent the $70 for the 5 of us to go up this sky lift. It was well run with friendly staff, however a fire apparently burned down the platform at the top so for...More

I would say when you go over the road 30-40 feet but up the mountain 20 ft at most (I feel like anyway-I am not a great judgement in length lol). The ride up isn't bad at all but my favorite part is the ride down. You get... More

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
