Spring is one of the most beautiful times to be in the Great Smoky Mountains and at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park we are giving you the opportunity to get VIP access to see the sunrise from the best view in Gatlinburg and get early access to the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park.
Starting on April 9th, ticket holders for the sunrise event will be able to board the SkyLift before dawn and enjoy a memorable sunrise over the Smoky Mountains and the city of Gatlinburg below. In addition, sunrise ticket holders can enjoy live muisc, donuts and a souvenir mug, and one cup of coffee for free. Smoky Mountain Sunrise ticket holders will be available to a limited number of guests beginning Sunday April 9th, and continuing each Wednesday until May 10th. Guests will have access to the SkyLift, SkyCenter, SkyBridge, SkyDeck, SkyTrail and the Tulip Tower. This is a prime spot for photography, proposals, and it is THE best spot in Gatlinburg to watch the Sunrise.
Smoky Mountain Sunrise is only available to a limited number of guests and tickets can only be purchased online. Tickets are valid for the entire day you choose to visit, so you may leave and re-enter the SkyLift Park as many times as your heart desires during operating hours that day.
