    Here is a 'ride' for all ages to enjoy. The prices arent too terribly bad. You go up 1, 800 ft in the air. At the top you must get off and theres conveniently a tourist store, however, the view is breathtaking on the ride back down.

    Absolutely ridiculous!! During a weekend getaway WITH NO specific budget, We had to pass on this one. Is the owner of this attraction so greedy and business naivete that he has to charge 13 BUCKS A PERSON to ride this cable driven chair? The thing is, the chair is always moving, and cost very very little if any to add a participant... Not many people riding the thing, more than 50% empty. Hey buddy, wise up, offer a price that people will pay for this elementary ride. Hint, 9 bucks...

    I know your thinking, if they want to ride it, they will...Read More

    Yes, it's a tourist rip-off. Plenty of folks willing to fork over $14 for this lame attraction. Chalk it up to vacation mentality. If the owner had a brain the tickets would be $10 and put something more than a sad store at the top. My suggestion would be a bar with a great lookout balcony. Then they'd be making money hand over fist. For now, I say skip it.

    Good: It's in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg. Offers a great view of the city.

    Bad: Expensive ride. I suggest Ober Gatlin instead for your cable car or chairlift rides that offer good views. Also, try the Space Needle for a better bargain for seeing downtown Gatlinburg from high above. The lower priced Space Needle tickets are usually good for two trips--I usually ride up once in the day and again at night for two different experiences.

    This chairlift ride is probably the most popular because of its location and folks are jumping on...Read More

I know your thinking, if they want to ride it, they will pay the extra money to make up for those who ain't riding it? Fact is buddy, with a price like that, you are losing a lot of the people who want to ride it, and all of the ones who are on the fence about it.

Perhaps I am missing something, is there a included show at the top of that mountain, is it a needed transportation route? If so, excuse my oversight....

This chairlift ride is probably the most popular because of its location and folks are jumping on before they have a chance to explore other options.
