Overview

Immerse yourself in the beauty and adventure of the great outdoors at Anakeesta.

Located in the heart of the Smoky Mountains, our mountain top adventure park sits high atop Gatlinburg with spectacular views of town and National Park. With elements of play and adventure, we mix relaxation and delicious dining options to create a memorable experience for families and friends: day or night. Admission to Anakeesta includes all day park access and unlimited scenic rides via our Chondola chair lift ride which transports you to our whimsical Firefly Village with quaint shopping, and dining.

Stroll along the mountaintop to our nature-themed Black Bear Village. After shopping, take in the elevated dining experience at Clifftop with gorgeous views of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Continue your adventure by strolling on the TreeTop Skywalk, with over 800-feet of connected bridges hanging 50 to 60-feet in the air, the TreeTop Skywalk is the longest tree-based skywalk bridge in North America. Enjoy the sweeping views of the Great Smoky Mountains, and Mt. LeConte, with a trip up our AnaVista Tower, the highest point in downtown Gatlinburg!

Discover the newly opened BirdVenture Play Area, Hellbender Mountain Coaster, and Fur Trader. Anakeesta’s newest and largest retail location on Anakeesta mountain.

Join us for the newly expanded Astra Lumina, an enchanted night walk through the woods where the stars are descending from the night sky, right here at Anakeesta! Experience their wonder up close, before they return to their rightful home. Astra Lumina is the 15th Lumina experience, and the very first in the United States!

Reviews

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.
