Always a lift in your spirits

I've been riding this lift since the 60's and it's always fun. We've dropped sandals and sunglasses and had more fun than you can imagine! Night is always fun.

My favorite thing to do when we come to Gatlinburg. The ride up is amazing and the views on the way down are spectacular. Breaks my heart that it is closed now for repairs.

Nice relaxing ride. Looks intimidating from the street but very cool. A little expensive but you can take some great pics the entire way and views from the top are beautiful!!

There is such a beautiful view of Tennessee and the mountains at the top along with a cute little gift shop.

Even if you are afraid of heights, this ride is for you. You aren't that far up off the ground. It is relaxing, romantic, and very scenic. I highly recommend it.

A little expensive, but beautiful night view. My wife was a bit scared by it, but we had a great time.

This is a must do while in Gatlinburg. Take the chair lift over a city stree and up the mountain. The views at the top are amazing, but I recommend doing this on a clear day for the best viewing.
