A mountain of adventure awaits at Anakeesta, Gatlinburg’s award-winning theme park! 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.

Take in the gorgeous views of downtown Gatlinburg in the evening with a sunset-view at our Smokehouse Barbeque and Brewery with delicious southern classics and local craft beers! Enjoy a mouth-watering meal from our Cliff Top restaurant with chef-inspired menus during every season as you sit and take in the stunning views of the Smoky Mountains.

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!


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.
