Anakeesta

Overview

A mountain of adventure awaits at Anakeesta! Begin your journey with a scenic ride from Downtown Gatlinburg to the summit of Anakeesta in our 6 person enclosed gondola cabin or 4 person open air chair. Guests may choose to stay grounded on our Ridge Rambler adventure trucks for an immersive forest excursion before arriving on the mountain.

Trek along the Treetop Skywalk, a series of bridges connected 50 feet in the air or climb to the highest point in downtown Gatlinburg at AnaVista Tower to enjoy 360 degree mountain views. Stroll along lush pathways through our botanical Vista Gardens where you will discover the new TreeVenture Challenge Course where guests of all ages can crawl, climb, and swing through our interactive treehouses before stopping for the perfect photo op with our 20’ iconic Willow sculpture.

Add to your day of adventure when you soar through the trees on our Dueling Zipline adventure with heart pounding rappels or ride the Rail Runner mountain coaster, the only one of its kind in the U.S. Cool off by our splash pad and 8 ft waterfall designed to resemble a Tennessee mountain stream located right beside our new stage in our overlook plaza.

Enjoy live music and seasonal entertainment outside our brand-new Smokehouse Barbeque and Brewery with delicious southern classics, and local craft beers coming in September! Grab a mouth-watering ¼ pound chargrilled burger or pulled pork nachos from our Cliff Top Grill and Bar while you sit back, relax, and take in a glorious sunset while waiting for the sparkling lights of downtown Gatlinburg to come to life.

Don’t forget to save room for dessert at Pearl’s Pie in the Sky while you stroll through quaint shops in firefly village. Wrist bands provide all day access to Anakeesta. Join us to discover the magic in the mountains!

“Very beautiful and great atmosphere has a lot of beautiful Scenery. Loved everything about the experience. Would recommend it to anyone.” - Angie W.

“This was excellent for the price. The kids enjoyed the rail runner and the lines weren’t long at all. The walk among the trees was so worth it. We loved the little shops and the cliff top grill offered excellent food. Overall we had a wonderful day and we will definitely be going back.” - Samantha W.

“Worth every penny and some more. Great organization and entertainment. Once on top, there is so much more than you expect.” - Cornelis M.
