Experience the New Gatlinburg SkyDeck

The Gatlinburg SkyLift is a popular locale to take in the breathtaking view of the Great Smoky Mountains and downtown Gatlinburg. Adding to your viewing experience is the new Gatlinburg SkyDeck, set to open spring 2019.

About the Gatlinburg SkyDeck

Once you ride the Gatlinburg SkyLift, you’ll arrive to the SkyDeck. This paved area offers an expansive viewing experience. Walk around the SkyDeck for panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park during the day and the shimmering lights of downtown Gatlinburg at night.

While you’re on the SkyDeck, enjoy a meal at the new restaurant and bar, then purchase a souvenir to remember your trip from the gift shop. Of course the best souvenir will be the photos you take from the top of Crockett Mountain. Once you’ve taken your photos, relax at one of the seating areas to fully take in your beautiful surroundings, or watch eager guests walk across the lengthy SkyBridge.
