For the whole month of February, Gatlinburg SkyLift Park is celebrating love! They are throwing an event called Love is in the Air. This is the second year this event has taken place, and you won’t want to miss out on it! Find out more about Love is in the Air at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park below:
Love is in the Air Event
During Love is in the Air, the entire park will be lit up with red and white lights. You’ll definitely be able to feel the love in the air, whether you go with friends, family, or your sweetheart. On the SkyBridge, there is the “Tunnel of Love.” It is made of 18,000 lights that are strung on the bridge and spans 300 feet, creating a tunnel of lights. Custom-welded hearts will be hung beneath the bridge for even more decorations. Walking across the SkyBridge under the tunnel of lights is something you won’t want to miss out on.
The entire Gatlinburg SkyLift Park will be decked out in decorations. As soon as you step onto the SkyDeck, you’ll see a 30-foot-tall tree covered in lights. Speakers will be playing love songs, and the lights on the tree are synced to the music.
This event is included in the regular admission of the park. It lasts through February 28, and the park is open from 9 am to 9 pm every day.
