The Spring is a beautiful time to be in the Great Smoky Mountains, and at the Gatlinburg SkyPark we are giving you the opportunity to get VIP access to see the sunrise from the best view in Gatlinburg. Get early access to the Gatlinburg SkyPark, enjoy the sunrise, and a complimentary breakfast featuring danishes, muffins, and coffee, plus take home a Smoky Mountain Sunrise Coffee Mug with each ticket purchased!


Starting on April 6th, ticket holders for the sunrise event will be able to board the SkyLift before dawn and enjoy a memorable sunrise over the Smoky Mountains and the city of Gatlinburg below.  In addition, sunrise ticket holders will enjoy live music, donuts, coffee and a souvenir mug as part of this event. 

Smoky Mountain Sunrise tickets are on sale now! Guests will have access to the SkyLift, SkyCenter, SkyBridge, SkyDeck, SkyTrail and the Tulip Tower.  This is a prime spot for photography, proposals, and it is THE best spot in Gatlinburg to watch the Sunrise. 

Smoky Mountain Sunrise is only available to a limited number of guests and tickets can only be purchased online. Tickets are valid for the entire day you choose to visit, so you may leave and re-enter the SkyPark as many times as your heart desires during operating hours that day.
