The Gatlinburg Sky Lift is one of the best ways to take a ride to overlook the beautiful views of Gatlinburg. It’s one of the oldest attractions in Gatlinburg and it was the first chairlift ever built in the Dixieland area. Today, it’s a very popular attraction that hundreds of thousands of people ride each year!
About the Gatlinburg Sky Lift
The Gatlinburg Sky Lift is a fun ride up Crockett Mountain where you’ll reach the top of the mountain at one the best Gatlinburg scenic overlooks. Once you’re at the top of Crockett Mountain, you’ll be 1,800 feet high, so you can see the mountains and the great views of Gatlinburg.
When you reach the top of the mountain, there’s a gift shop where you can purchase your souvenir photo, snacks, drinks and more to remember your experience on the Gatlinburg Sky Lift.
Visiting the Gatlinburg Sky Lift at Night
We definitely recommend you take a ride on the Gatlinburg Sky Lift twice – once during the day and another trip at night! Taking a ride on the Gatlinburg Sky Lift in the evening gives you another great view of the area. At night, the lights across Gatlinburg shine bright and you’ll have a completely different experience.
