Gatlinburg SkyLift Park

Operations Updates

We are very excited to welcome guests back to the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park to enjoy the outdoors, fresh mountain air, and mountain views.

Our top priority is to protect the health and safety of our guests, employees, and community, and we have made changes to our operations to support this goal and follow the Tennessee Pledge to reopen businesses responsibly.

We highly recommend that all guests visiting the SkyLift Park wear a face covering and we will be providing them to those who may not have their own. We are taking this step in following the CDC recommendation of the use of face coverings in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, which is the case on the SkyBridge.

Thank you for your cooperation and support in keeping us all safe and healthy.
