If you’re planning a trip to Gatlinburg this holiday season, there are a few new attractions you might want to check out.
One of Gatlinburg’s most popular attractions is the SkyBridge. It is a bridge that spans 680 feet across a deep valley with a height of 105 feet at its middle. Plus, there is 30 feet of double glazing that you walk through to make it even more exciting. People from all over are going to visit the SkyBridge, and rightly so. Over the past two years, they have been working on new attractions for SkyLift Park that will attract more guests. Finally, these are finished. So, just in time for the holiday season, you’ll have a few more reasons to visit SkyBridge and SkyLift Park.
Lights over Gatlinburgh
Again, this holiday season you will experience more than the view of the Smoky Mountains at Sky Bridge. Spectacular ‘Lights Over Gatlinburg’ winter lighting is back with over 60,000 lights on the mountain, the famous tunnel of lights on the SkyBridge, dancing trees to music on the SkyTrail, winter photo opportunities magic for the whole family, a huge 30 foot tall glittering Christmas tree and much more.
SkyTrail now open
Gatlinburg Skylift Park worked on a new attraction called “SkyTrail”, a scenic walkway along Crockett Mountain that connects both sides of the SkyBridge. SkyTrial is a half-elevated promenade, half-paved walking path that will provide a perfect view of the Smokies. SkyTrial is officially open for you to check out this holiday season. According to Gatlinburg SkyLift Park:
Along the way, you’ll come across interactive signage, three unique sections (the Elevated Boardwalk, Tulip Tower, and Path), and some of the most unique Smokies and SkyBridge photo opportunities!
The tulip tower is a sight to see
Another new attraction that is open just in time for the holiday season is the Tulip Tower. The Tulip Tower is a story-themed steel structure with 4 viewing platforms. The views from the tower alone are amazing, but the thrilling part is getting to the tower itself. In order to soak up the view of the Tulip Tower, you will have to cross one of the two rope bridges that connect the two ends of the tower. You can take a look at the Tulip Tower, SkyTrial, and Lights Over Gatlinburg in the post below. Plus, discover other fun things the Gatlinburg area has to offer …
