NYE Midnight Ball Drop & Fireworks Viewing Party

Make this New Year's Eve one to remember. The SkyLift Park has the absolute best view of the Gatlinburg fireworks and ball drop, looking directly across at the Space Needle from above and without the crowds on the street. We're throwing an after-hours viewing party with the SkyCenter open for purchase of hot drinks, food, and beer, and great fireworks viewing locations across the entire SkyBridge, on every level of the SkyDeck, and from the upstairs bar in the SkyCenter.

Love is in the Air

Throughout the month of February we'll be celebrating Valentine's Day by lighting up the SkyBridge with red and white twinkling lights, along with floral garland wrapped around the "Tunnel of Love" on the Gatlinburg SkyBridge.  Whether you are wanting to get the perfect Valentine's Day photo opportunity, looking to pop the question, or simply wanting to spend quality time with your sweetheart, the Tunnel of Love on the Gatlinburg SkyBridge will definitely create the most romantic memories of a lifetime.

Fourth of July Fireworks Viewing Party


Celebrate the Fourth Of July at the biggest and best fireworks viewing party in Gatlinburg! This year the city fireworks show will take place at the iconic Space Needle, directly across from and 100 feet below the mountaintop at the SkyLift Park.  Watching Fireworks on the Fourth is an American tradition celebrated by all of us, so get "above it all" on the SkyBridge and celebrate America.
