Come soar 2.1 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee and a 1500 foot rise in elevation. Our two 120-passenger counter-balanced cars provides an amazing aerial experience for all ages, from the young to the young at heart. Our Aerial Tramway departs from downtown Gatlinburg and will whisk you up directly to our Amusement Park and Ski Area.
History: In the winter of 1972 an idea to provide a safer, more comfortable way to reach the ski area was needed and the Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway was born. The tramway was completed August of 1973 and is now celebrating it’s 47th anniversary having carried MILLIONS OF PEOPLE to Ober Gatlinburg!
Departing regularly from downtown Gatlinburg, this cable car will take you on a breathtaking 2.1-mile ride up to the Amusement Park & Ski Area.
The Aerial Tram station is located at Parkway and LeConte Street in downtown Gatlinburg (1001 Parkway).
We can carry over 3,000 guests to Gatlinburg’s Top Attraction daily.
Experience the best view of the Smoky Mountains!

Due to the high demand and a large number of guests during Holiday Periods and Weekends you may encounter a wait time of 2 or more hours to board the Aerial Tramway. Please schedule your time accordingly to allow for delays.
