Really pretty view, but there was construction going on while I went. It's a nice small lift that my "afraid of heights" wife could handle. Only took a few minutes.

I thought once you get to the top there was atleast some sort of view spot or something especially for $16 a person but its essentially a steep ski lift up and then right back down

I think this skylift that brings you up above Gatlinburg and back down is definitely worth the $$ for the experience. The ride is smooth and very relaxing, though it will be nicer when they finish the building at the top and you can get...More

Did this 10 yrs ago when my wife and I first got married and we just had to take our son on it. Still a great ride and the staff was great. They even slow down the lift to help my son get on

We went up at night, right before the sun set & the views were so beautiful! It's a great way to see the area.

It was just a few dollars extra to buy the all day passes and totally worth it. I think my son and I rode it 4x. It was really cool at night. The view is amazing from the top.

Good ride for relaxing. Could not get off due to fire in forest last year. Every thing about ride was new due to fire.

Will definitely bring the grandkids up here when they are old enough for the rides. The chairlift was a peaceful ride and a beautiful view from the top.

I'm sure there is, but don't remember whathe it is. The gondola holds only 2 to 3 adults, so that would limit your weight as well. It certainly isn't a small amount as we were in the 450 to 500 lb range.
