About Gatlinburg SkyLift Park
The Gatlinburg SkyLift Park is an iconic attraction in Gatlinburg, Tennessee that has been in operation since 1954, making it the longest running attraction in the area. The SkyLift was actually the first scenic chairlift ever built in the South!
For 60 + years, the SkyLift Park offered rides in the famous yellow SkyLift chairs that would lift visitors 500 feet above the Gatlinburg town below to the top of Crockett Mountain where they could get their SkyLift photo, relax, and enjoy the beautiful views of the Smoky Mountains. In November of 2016, the SkyLift suffered sever fire damage to the chairlift and the entire mountainside that it sat on. A new chairlift had to replace the one damaged by the fires, which meant new SkyLift chairs had to be added. In Spring of 2017, the SkyLift Park opened again for roundtrip lift rides, and in May of 2019, it opened up the now world-famous Gatlinburg SkyBridge. Today, the SkyLift Park has more attractions such as the SkyTrail and the Tulip Tower that give guests a chance to see the best Smoky Mountain views.
