The Gatlinburg Sky Lift is Open Again!

The Gatlinburg Sky Lift is welcoming visitors once again! The Sky Lift attraction originally opened in 1954, but has recently been closed due to reconstruction.

The new Gatlinburg Sky Lift is a little bit different than the Sky Lift you may remember. The new ride has 92 chairs and each chair can seat up to 3 people! In addition, the Sky Lift is a bit taller than before, so you will actually reach about 10 feet taller at the highest point of the ride. // read more
