Experience a mountain of family fun!
Your journey to Anakeesta begins with a scenic ride from Downtown Gatlinburg to the summit of Anakeesta on the Chondola’s open-air 4-person chair or enclosed 6-person gondola cabin or a Ridge Rambler adventure truck.
From there, guests can enjoy the Treetop Skywalk on a series hanging bridges more than 50 feet in the air, or climb through the TreeVenture Challenge course with the kids then discover treasures while mining for gems. Then, add on even more adventure and soar through the trees on Gatlinburg’s fastest dual-racing zip lines with heart-pounding rappel drops and ride the Rail Runner mountain coaster, the first single rail gravity fed mountain coaster in the United States!
Ready for the best views of the smokies? Explore Anakeesta’s beautifully landscaped Vista Gardens with interpretive signs then climb AnaVista Tower to downtown Gatlinburg’s highest point to see 360 degree panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and spot peaks as far away as Kentucky!
Ready to eat? Enjoy an elevated meal at the Cliff Top while taking in the views of Mt. LeConte at Cliff Top or grab the best southern BBQ at the Anakeesta Smokehouse. Don’t forget to save room for dessert at Pearl’s Pie in the Sky!
Wristbands provide all-day access so be sure to return to the park in the evening to watch a glorious sunset while waiting for the sparkling lights of Downtown Gatlinburg to come alive. Join us at Anakeesta and discover the magic in the mountains!
