Anakeesta

Overview

Your journey begins with a scenic ride from Downtown Gatlinburg to the summit of Anakeesta on either the Chondola’s open-air 4-person chair or enclosed 6-person gondola cabin or our Ridge Rambler – 45 passenger – military trucks. From there, guests can enjoy the Treetop Skybridge on 16 hanging bridges more than 50 feet in the air, soar through the trees on Gatlinburg’s fastest dual-racing zip lines with heart-pounding rappel drops, ride the Rail Runner, the first single rail gravity fed mountain coaster in the United States! Climb through the Treehouse Village Adventure with the kids then discover treasures while mining for gems. Ready for a more relaxed pace? Stroll through the Memorial Forest Walk then explore Anakeesta’s beautifully landscaped Vista Gardens with interpretive signs or find a spot by the firepit and enjoy the panoramic views of Mt. LeConte. Ready to eat? Enjoy a craft beer or specialty drink with friends at the Cliff Top Grill & Bar then order dinner, sit back, relax, and watch a glorious sunset while waiting for the sparkling lights of Downtown Gatlinburg to come alive. Or, taste the best southern BBQ at the Anakeesta Smokehouse. Don’t forget to save room for dessert at Pearl’s Pie in the Sky! Wrist bands provide all day access to Anakeesta. Join us at Anakeesta and discover the magic in the mountains!
