GATLINBURG, TN – May 23, 2019 – Gatlinburg SkyLift Park, offering premier views of Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains since 1954, has officially opened the record-breaking SkyBridge attraction.
The public can ride the historic SkyLift and experience the breathtaking SkyBridge and expansive new SkyDeck. Guests can purchase tickets at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park office in Downtown Gatlinburg.
The SkyBridge measures 680 feet in length, making it the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America. Guests can walk across at their own pace, passing glass-floor panels at its highest point and taking in some of the best views of the Smokies. Also new to the top of Crockett Mountain, the SkyDeck boasts an expansive observation area, new snack shop and bar, gift shop and plenty of available seating.
The Gatlinburg SkyLift is currently in operation, but guests have been unable to get off and enjoy the landscape since 2016. Upgraded to a three-seat lift, visitors will now have access to all attractions for one price.
Founded in 1954, Gatlinburg SkyLift Park offers stunning views and unforgettable experiences in East Tennessee. The Gatlinburg SkyLift carries guests from the heart of town up five hundred vertical feet to the top of Crockett Mountain. Renovated in 2019, Gatlinburg SkyLift Park now offers a SkyDeck observation area and SkyBridge—the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America—to the millions of people who visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park each year.
