What exactly is Anakeesta?
Anakeesta is an outdoor family attraction that offers a unique mountain experience for all ages. Begin with a scenic 14-minute ride from Downtown Gatlinburg to the summit of Anakeesta mountain on the Chondola’s quad chairlift or enclosed 6 person gondola cabin where you will arrive at Firefly Village, a whimsical treehouse-themed village that features local craftsmen, retail and casual dining options.
From there you can stroll through the scenic treetop canopy walk which includes 16 hanging bridges more than 40 feet in the air, soar through the trees on Gatlinburg’s fastest dual-racing zip lines, climb through the Anakeesta Treehouse playground or simply sit back and enjoy the breathtaking views of Mt. Leconte and sparkling lights of Downtown Gatlinburg.
Designed to be an entertainment destination for the whole family, we are thrilled to be able to share with you the magic that’s in the mountains.
What is included with your ticket to Anakeesta?
Great question! We’re so glad you asked. The cost of admission includes everything listed above with the exception of the Dueling Ziplines. You can purchase tickets to zipline at the Chondola Station or at our Adventure Outpost in Firefly Village.
The Dueling Ziplines includes two dual ziplines, each over 1,000 feet long, that allow you to zip right next to family and friends. Along the way you’ll be able to test your courage at our two challenge stations where you’ll rappel off our platforms and enjoy a controlled 60 foot descent to a cushioned platform below.
We hope to see you soon at Anakeesta!
