As soon as the work has been completed, you will be able to get off and walk around the top. Right now it’s a round trip ride. I say it was expensive, but everything in Gatlinburg is overpriced so it’s comparable to other activities.

This was a great way to spend a little time and get a bird eyes view of downtown Gatlinburg. Thankfully the staff helped loading and unloading so even a newbie like me didn’t feel awkward or unsafe getting on or off.More
