September 23 - October 31
Are you ready for Adventure?
Fall is the most exciting time to be in the Great Smoky Mountains and at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park we are giving visitors a show with Autumn Adventures, a series of events with mountain sunrises, music, colorful seasonal decorations and trick or treat parties for the kids - not to mention the best fall foliage views you can get in the Smokies. We have Autumn Adventures planned for all ages with spooky fun, and a separate ticketed VIP sunrise event that includes early access to the SkyLift Park.
Ticket holders for the limited VIP Smoky Mountain Sunrise event will be able to board the SkyLift before dawn, enjoy live music on the SkyDeck, and have a complimentary coffee before watching a memorable sunrise over the Smoky Mountains and the city of Gatlinburg below. Smoky Mountain Sunrise will be available to a limited number of guests on Tuesdays and Thursdays from September 23- October 31st. Guests will have access to the SkyLift, SkyCenter, SkyBridge and SkyDeck areas, along with an exclusive "sneak-peak" of the SkyTrail before it opens to the public. This will be a prime spot for photography, proposals, and it is THE best spot to view the sunrise in Gatlinburg. Bring your camera or even your yoga mat.
*This is a separate ticketed event. Tickets must be purchased online in advance.
Spooktacular Smokies is all about the younger goblins and ghouls, featuring storytelling on the SkyDeck every Friday and Saturday night from September 24- October 31st, with additional activities on Halloween weekend. Enjoy story time, halloween themed photo opportunities, spooky music and halloween lights. Any child under 12 who is wearing a Halloween costume will be admitted for free and will be offered free candy the whole weekend of 29th-31st.
