One of the best things about visiting the Smoky Mountains in the fall is all of the exciting seasonal events! The newest event in town is Autumn Adventures at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park, where you can enjoy a mountain sunrise, experience stunning views of fall foliage and get into some spooky fun with your kids! Here are the top 3 things to know about Autumn Adventures at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park:
1. What to Expect
Autumn Adventures is a new event at the park with mountain sunrises, live music, colorful seasonal decorations and Halloween themed parties for the kids! Treat yourself to the separately ticketed VIP sunrise event, where you get to board the SkyLift before dawn and ride to the top of the mountain! Upon arrival, enjoy live music on the SkyDeck and have a complimentary coffee before watching the sunrise over the Smoky Mountains! As a bonus, guests receive an exclusive “sneak peek” of the SkyTrail before it opens to the public! If you have kids in your family, don’t miss the Spooktacular Smokies portion of Autumn Adventures that features storytelling, Halloween themed photo opportunities, spooky music and Halloween lights!
2. Dates, Times and Ticket Information
The Autumn Adventures event takes place from late September until the end of October. The VIP Smoky Mountain Sunrise is open to a limited number of guests on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so be sure to purchase your tickets in advance! Note that your ticket is also valid for the entire day that you choose to visit, so you may leave and re-enter the SkyLift Park as many times as you want during that operating day. Spooktacular Smokies is included with the SkyLift Park general admission ticket and takes place on Friday and Saturday nights. Any child under 12 who is wearing a Halloween costume will be admitted for free and be offered free candy the whole weekend of October 29th-31st!
3. Details About the Event Location
Gatlinburg SkyLift Park is one of the most popular destinations in the Smokies as it offers spectacular views of the mountains and downtown Gatlinburg! The park is also home to the Gatlinburg SkyBridge, the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America! Take a stroll on this bridge that stretches nearly 700 feet across the valley in a single span and experience the 30 feet of see-through glass flooring in the middle of the span! After your walk, catch your breath on the SkyDeck and enjoy a beverage in one of the lounge chairs! To reach the park, simply take the yellow SkyLift chairs from the heart of downtown Gatlinburg.
