Gatlinburg Sky Lift
For over 40 years families have been riding this double chairlift to the top of Crockett Mountain for unforgettable views of the Smokies. Open year round, this lift glides over the Little Pigeon River then climbs to an elevation of 1,800 feet.
What a rip-off, brought a coupon from the Gatlinburg travel guide for $3.00 off of photo at top of ride. All the employees look like dope head teenagers. They took our photo, a 5x7 for $16.00 and told us we have to redeem the coupon at the ticket booth down at the bottom. Up to was a so-so view but not worth $35.00 for 3 people. Now I have $51.00 in this dump of a ride and at the bottom I go to redeem $3.00 back to ease a little pain when the guy tells me thats not the way it works. He claims the photo people are separate from the lift and I would have to ride back up to redeem the coupon. Don't waste your time and money on this sky lift. It's not worth half the price.
I don't know if we're talking about Ober Gatlinburg, or the Gatlinburg Sky Lift. But I'll write about the sky lift. We spent 11 dollars ti get all day passes, and it was beautiful at the top. One day we went, we actually couldn't go up because someone was getting married on top! A wedding! I didn't even know they did that! Apparently many people love it.
The tram ride to Ober Gatlinburg is one of my favorite things to do while i'm visiting. Once you are at Ober Gatlinburg you can take the ski lift on up to the top of the Mtn. The view is awsome. I actually proposed to my wife there.
The trip up was so pretty! Good time to take pictures. But don't drop the camera... most likely you wont see it again. haha. The workers were nice and the picture at the top was so fun!! Keep a memory forever with the gift shop. one dislike was that the gift shop didnt have much stuff with the sky lift involved just suffed animals and jewelry. Maybe a bit expensive... but worth it if you dont have time to go to Ober Gatlinburg.
I don't see why so many people don't like it. We really enjoy it! We take our kids (ages 13 and 11) to Gatlinburg every year and this is one of the first things they want to do when we get to the downtown area. We've always gone during the day but this year, I think we'll try it later in the evening when it's starting to get dark. I'll bet the view will be really neat looking with everything lit up.
This was expensive. about $12 for an adult. Ober Gatlinburg is Cheaper, for about $10 you can ride the tram car for 2 days as much as you desire, and for $3 more dollars you can take their sky lift. It is even longer. Go only half-way up and ride the Alpine Slide down!!! AWESOME!
The view from the Gatlinburg sky likft is not that great, and once you get to the top they just try to sell you a $10 picture of yourself riding it, and sell you souveniers, and ice cream.
