Anakeesta is located in downtown Gatlinburg near stop light 3. Kids and adults will enjoy the many attractions. Take a scenic ride to the top of the mountain on one of their 6 person enclosed Chondolas. If you prefer to ride the chair lift to the top, choose one of their 4 person seats for an open air lift up the mountain. There is also a 45 passenger truck named the “Ridge Rambler” that can drive you to the top if the chair lift is not your thing.
Once at the top there is plenty to see an do to keep you busy for much of the day. One of the main attractions is the Treetop Skywalk. With 16 hanging bridges that rise to over 50 feet in the air, you will feel like you are walking through the treetops! Don’t forget to check out the the dual ziplines if you are looking for a more adrenaline pumping activity. Try to save some time to ride the Rail Runner mountain coaster, which is the first gravity fed single rail mountain coaster in the USA.
After you are done with the excitement take a relaxing stroll through the Memorial Forest Walk. After enjoying your walk through the beautifully landscaped pathway you can relax around the fire-pit with panoramic views of Mt Leconte’.
There are plenty of eating choices at either the Cliff Top Grill & Bar or the Anakeesta Smokehouse. Have a relaxing dinner while viewing a mountain sunset, and then gaze down at the sparkling lights of downtown Gatlinburg as night-time envelops the area.
