We rode the new chairlifts and loved it. Much better than the old ones. It seats 3 people now and it's a much smoother ride. So peaceful and excellent views of gatlinburg and the mountains.

Great view of town. Went right over the Gatlinburg Inn. Rode it several times. Buy the all day pass.. better value

We went on the Sky Lift to see the views from the top. The views were breathtaking. It was a bit pricy but it is an amazing view to see. It did not take long to ride up and back down.

There is not nothing too exciting about the Sky Lift that would get me to go back on it but it was a great one time experience that offered some nice views from high above Gatlinburg.

Right now, you ride up, and stay on, and ride down. No stopping at the top like in the past (they are rebuilding the stop at the top). Still, it's a nice ride with good views. get on the ride near dark to enjoy special...More

There was no line and we enjoyed a view of the mountains while in the air. Was a little pricey. Ride was comfortable and easy on/off.

On our last night in town, we decided to give this attraction a whirl. Loved the panoramic views, but sadly, saw a lot of fire damage from last November's wildfires.

From the info I get on their site the age limit is 3 yrs old, but they are still not operating yet. When I was up there in March they weren't anywhere close to opening. The fires did a number up there, but don't give up... More

No, as of last weekend the lift is not open. Chairs are up. However, still under construction.

I had a 8 month old and a almost 3 year old. Would they be allowed to ride with an adult?

Don't think so. There's only a bar holding you in. Or at least that's how it used to be. Try the tram for Ober-Gatlinburg or go up the Needle (across the street) you can go up in an elevator with your stroller.
