GATLINBURG, Tenn. -Fall is the most breathtaking time to be in Gatlinburg, and the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park is giving visitors a show in September and October 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 in Gatlinburg. The SkyLift Park, home of the Gatlinburg SkyBridge, North America’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge, has festive Autumn Adventures planned for all ages, with spooky fun, and a VIP sunrise event.
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 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 to October 31. Guests to the SkyLift Park will have access to the SkyLift, SkyCenter, SkyBridge and SkyDeck, along with an exclusive “sneak-peek” of the SkyTrail boardwalk before it opens to the public.
With the Smoky Mountain Sunrise event available to only a limited number of people, visitors will want to get their tickets early, online at shop.gatlinburgskylift.com/s/skylift-tickets/p/smoky-mountain-sunrise-access. The tickets are valid for the entire day.
Spooktacular Smokies is all about the younger goblins and ghouls, with scary stories on the SkyDeck every Friday and Saturday night from September 24 to October 31, with additional activities on Halloween weekend. Enjoy spooky music, scary(ish) stories, and Halloween lights. Any child under 12 who is wearing a costume will be admitted free on Halloween weekend. There will also be candy stations for costumed children to trick or treat throughout Halloween weekend, employees in costume.
“There’s no more beautiful time in the Smokies than Fall, and we want to provide a new and enhanced opportunity for visitors to enjoy the unsurpassed views from the SkyLiftPark and SkyBridge” said Randy Watson, general manager. “We’ve also created some exciting new events for children, since the SkyLift is such a long-running family tradition in the Smokies.”
