Gatlinburg Sky Lift opened in 1950’s. Step into the sky lift and photograph wild panoramic view of the Smoky Mountain. Glide with this chair lift soundlessly above the National Park and quaint town of Gatlinburg. This is one of the oldest attractions in the Smoky Mountain. Peer down through the clear floor and watch the spectacular views. Slide over the city, the mountains, the trees and flowers, and the Little Pigeon River.

Imagine yourself sailing slowly above the trees, up into the Smoky Mountains, as this chair lift transports you to an unparalleled view of the mountains and the town below. The Sky Lift has a vintage appearance and some may be hesitant to use this old car lift. However, the owners have invested very well in ensuring the safety of passengers. All working parts are checked regularly and inspected by supervisors. Thus this attraction has an impeccable safety record and welcomes guests of all ages.

Purchase your ticket and let the employees help you into the chair. For the elderly or disabled person, the lift will be put on hold for easy access to the chair. The steady and scenic ascent to the summit of Crocket Mountain begins. Bear Run, Mysterious Mansion, and downtown Gatlinburg will unfold underneath you. Employees are there to help you out of the chair lift at the top. Feel free to discover the beautiful area. Help yourself at the snack bar, and visit the souvenir shop. If you are carrying your own basket of food, sit at the picnic tables and enjoy. There are binoculars located on the overlook platform to enable you to see the lush forests. The area is surrounded on three sides by natural beauty.

At night you are treated to a changed Smoky Mountain thrill. Downtown Gatlinburg's glittering lights brighten this community and deliver unforgettable views.

Gatlinburg Sky Lift Reviews & Ratings

  • Staff was very friendly. They stamp your arm and you're good to ride the lift all day. The SkyLift was very fun and seemed to be well maintained, which is nice considering the dizzying heights that you are riding it up and down. The Sky Bridge was a fun experience and a beautiful view as well. The lodge at the top of the mountain was clean and well maintained. It was a fun experience!

  • Fun & thrilling experience for the people who fear from height. Staff is good and ride is from the main city street to all the way top crossing a small water canal.It doesn’t take much time to cover to and fro but during weekends and holidays ticket queue would take double the time of ride. It’s mostly open so be careful while you take children with you.

  • Loved it! Go at the end of the day while it's still light and you can see the mountains. Stay and ride down after dark to enjoy the lights of town. You can get snacks, drinks, and souvenirs at the top, also.

  • It's a nice chairlift ride up the mountain to the Skybridge. It's very interesting to see different people's reactions as they walk the bridge, especially when they get to the glass bottom in the middle. There's a nice little bar where you can get some liquid courage before crossing the bridge. A really nice experience!

  • They did a great job bringing this back online. The bridge is much better than it appears from the bottom. Glass floor section is fun. Hope they add on to the far bridge station.
