Anakeesta is located in downtown Gatlinburg near stop light 3. All ages will enjoy the many attractions. Take a scenic ride to the top of the mountain on one of their 6 person enclosed Chondola. They also offer an open air chair lift that seats up to 4 people. If chair lifts are a bit scary for your group, a 45 passenger truck named the “Ridge Rambler” can drive you to the top.
Once at the top there is plenty 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, it’s as if you are walking through the treetops! Then you could check out the the dual zip-lines, if you are looking for a more adventurous 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.
There are plenty of eating choices. The Cliff Top Grill & Bar, or 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.
After a day full of fun take a relaxing stroll through the Memorial Forest Walk. You can end your evening by relaxing around the fire-pit with panoramic views of Mt LeConte.
