Ride was smooth and a nice pace for taking in the view. The weather was also perfect so we got to enjoy lookin at the city with a nice breeze.

Nice adventure for all in the family. The Skylift takes you up to the top of the mountain which gives you great view of Gatlinburg and the valley. Worth a try!

Came in June 2017. Still repairing areas up top from fires, so you can't get off at the top, but the views are tremendous - especially on the way down. Took the ride near dusk and the light off the trees on the mountains made...More

The ski lift was fun and not a bad price. You stay on it for the round trip. You could see the fire damage to the area around you. The ski lift looked like they had rebuilt it, I'm assuming because of the fire. It...More

We rode the new chairlifts and loved it. Much better than the old ones. It seats 3 people now and it's a much smoother ride. So peaceful and excellent views of gatlinburg and the mountains.

I had a 8 month old and a almost 3 year old. Would they be allowed to ride with an adult?

Don't think so. There's only a bar holding you in. Or at least that's how it used to be. Try the tram for Ober-Gatlinburg or go up the Needle (across the street) you can go up in an elevator with your stroller.
