“Take a ride to good ole rocky top”

Following an exhilarating ride to the mountain's top, enjoy the sights of Gatlinburg through the naked eye or with binoculars located on the overlook platform. Spectacular views of the lush forests and majestic mountains are enjoyed from atop since the area is surrounded on three sides by the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. At night you are treated to a different Smoky Mountain experience. Downtown Gatlinburg's dazzling lights illuminate this nestled community and deliver memorable views to last a lifetime from this scenic overlook.

I went here once when I was little and went back again in March, and loved it even more so than when I was a child. Although the chairs need to be updated, it's still a wonderful experience. Once you get to the top, you are treated to an awesome view of Gatlinburg. You also get your photo taken that can be bought as a souvenir once you get to the top at the souvenir shop. It's just as wonderful at night as well when you can see all the gorgeous lights of the city.

Aside from the Space Needle this is the best way to see Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountains. It's a nice slow ride that is even open at Night. I took it around Sunset and it was really something else. Highly Recommened.

A beautiful view of the city - we went at night and loved the skyline. Not inexpensive, but a fun outing.
