Gatlinburg Sky Lift?

by Laura4119

I'v ebeen going to TN since I was kid and now as a newly wed, I want to have this be a romantic type of ride for me and my husband. The only problem is I always look at it going up and down the mountain and I get scared. My question is..Is it terribly scary? Do you notice that you are going up so high?
Thanks for all replys.

I have not used the Sky Lift, but I wanted to. OTOH I do not have any kind of fear of heights. I went parasailing - no problem. I've been up in the CN tower and the Space Needle in Seattle - no problem. I've been up in a 1929 bi-plane - no problem. Been on several rain forest tram rides - no problem. (Never been on a zip line, but would like to) Been to the top of skyscrapers - no problem, Just last month, went up in the Gateway arch - took lots of pictures looking down at the ground.

So whether it will be scary depends on you. You won't necessarily see how high up the mountain you are getting, but you will probably be able to see how far you are from the ground. If that scares you, then maybe you should think about doing a horse and carriage ride or something that stays on the ground instead.

Sky lift if not a prob - unless you are afriad of heights. CHeck ou the TRAM at Ober Gatlinburgh. It is much bigger and has incredible views. You will share the ride with other people instead of sitting in your own little chair but it will be easier on you if you are a little hesitant about heights

I have been on the sky lift and the tram and I like the sky lift better. You are going up the mountain on the lift, but you are not terribly far off the ground. If I can do it so can you! At the top they will take your picture. Buy it to always have that memory!

I have rode the skylift about 5 or 6 times and I'm terrified of heights! On the way up it isn't bad at all because you are looking at a hill most of the time. Probably the worst part is the initial trip of coming down. At this point of the trip, though, there is ground underneath you it is just a big hill so if you fell you'd probably roll... Anyway I think you could handle it just fine. Now the tram - that thing just scares me, but someday I will go on it!

The fun side of the Smokies

Gatlinburg is a festive town, located right by the Smoky Mountains. A lot of shopping opportunities, restaurants, and attractions. Some attractions include Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, and Guinness World of Records. The town itself is very beautiful. The streets are filled with flowers and trees. A great place to take a walk.

Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail

by VolsUT

This is a very nice 1 hour drive through the mountains that should be done by a vacationers to Gatlinburg. Grutto Falls is just off the road and along the trip you will see old houses that have been vacated since the N.P. came in years ago. Take a left a redlight #8 and follow go stait and in a mile you are in the N.P. for a nices drive. Be avare the the TRAIL IS NOT OPEN IN THE WINTER.

Take a coffee and dessert break

by 807Wheaton about Desserts and More Cafe

This is a great little place to stop for lunch or just a yummy cheesecake dessert.
All the food is made fresh each day by the owners. Soups, sandwiches, and quiche with fruit are the main menu items for lunch. Cheesecakes, cake, creme brulee and pies are offered for desserts. We had the house favorite quiche, Spinache - Bacon.

Gatlinburg Space Needle

by Stephen-KarenConn

If you stand on the open observation deck of this 342-foot tower right after a thunderstorm, as I have done, then you will know how the Great Smoky Mountains got their name. It is not for the haze that hangs too heavy in the air much of the time. But just after a summer rain, and sometimes as the fog lifts on a cool morning, wisps of smoke-like clouds rise from every hollow and along every ridge. The view is unforgettable.

This tower, which was built by the father of one of my old girlfriends, rises above "Rebel Corner" in the heart of Gatlinburg. Below it are arcades, bumper cars, trinket shops, ice cream and candy shops, and a zillion other touristy things. At the Space Needle, for a small fee, one can rise above it all for an awesome view of what drew all the crowds here in the first place.
