“Saves money!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

You have to pay to park everywhere but if you take the trolley it's a way better deal than paying to park. You can even take the trolley to Dollywood & they will drop you off right at the front of the park. It's about 50 cents per person each way to ride the trolley. Park at the welcome center.

“Positive experience from Park Vista”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Park Vista and decided to purchase a Trolley pass so we could just leave our vehicle parked at the hotel. It was convenient to not have to worry about driving down the mountain and search for parking (plus pay the expensive parking fees).

There was a screen inside to show where the 2 Trolleys (red and green) that service Park Vista were at. So it was easy to find out how long the wait would be. We made a few trips down to Gatlinburg and then back to the hotel to drop off things we had purchased.

It was a bit difficult to stand and hold on while going up or down that hill to Park Vista. I highly recommend sitting if there's an option seat! Especially if you don't have good balance or if you have knee issues.

The trolleys stop running to Park Vista at midnight. We caught one at the Convention Center at about 11:40. I was starting to get a little scared that we had missed the last one!

I'd definitely use the Trolley the next time we go back.

“Only .50 to get around and see Gatlinburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The one that goes around Gatlinburg is only 50 cents...very cool. I've never ridden the one to Pigeon Forge, but if you want someone else to drive in the traffic and you don't mind being on their schedule it is sooooo worth it!! We ride just for the fun of it. Something we do every year. Start at the Convention Center...ride all around and get off at Convention Center. How inexpensive is that? Very!

“good to get around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We liked not driving, and the trollies were convenient. Just don't believe the drivers when you choose which route to take as they seem to tell you that theirs is the correct ride even when there is a more direct option.

“First time using the Trolley!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We had a great experience on the Trolley! We had never used it b/ c we generally have a stroller with us, however; this trip was kid free. it was so nice to ride and talk with other visitors and the driver was so funny and made the ride enjoyable! We will definitely use this great resource more often on our trips!
