Wheelchair Accessibillity

Several experiences and areas within Gatlinburg SkyLift Park are wheelchair accessible. 

The SkyLift is accessible to guests with disabilities if the guests are able to stand to load onto and off of the lift's chair.  Upon request, the chairlift can be slowed down or stopped for loading and unloading.  Wheelchairs and other mobility equipment are not permitted on the chairlift; those items may be checked at the base of the lift. Wheelchairs are available without charge near the load/unload area at the top of the lift.

The SkyDeck and the main level of the SkyCenter snack bar and gift shop are wheelchair accessible. This level includes the snack bar, gift shop, and restrooms.

Due to the steep grade of Crockett Mountain and safety issues related to the use of wheelchairs and other mobility devises on the bridge deck, the SkyBridge is not wheelchair accessible. Guests who are required to use wheelchairs or mobility devises such as walkers or crutches are able to purchase Restricted Access tickets at the SkyLift Park ticket window.
