I'm glad we purchased all day passes for the SkyLift. We ended up riding 3 different times, including once in the evening. The scenery is awesome, especially at night with the lights of Gatlinburg twinkling so far below.

The Skylift was fantastic! It was a hot day when we went but it provided a nice breeze going up. The view coming down was bar-none.

The sky lift was nice but not great. It was pleasant and relaxing and not too high priced. We did it at night and for 18 minutes it was okay.More

Was a beautiful ride! The kids loved it as much as we did and worth the money! It is able to hold 3 people, which was very convenient for our family.

It's a relaxing ride to the top of the mountain. Beautiful view when you get to the top but not much else to do. My only complaint that the ticket cost was way to high.
