As soon as you pull up to SkyLand Ranch, you’ll see a familiar sight: a chairlift! You’ll have fun riding to the top of the mountain on the Horizon Skyride, but if you aren’t comfortable doing that, you can always hitch a ride on a shuttle.

Once you’re at the top, you’ll see all kinds of fun things to do on the ranch. There are live miniature animals everyone will love, including cows, donkeys, and goats. Interact with these creatures and learn more about them, as well as the famous SkyLand longhorns! You can even try your hand at real ranching skills like roping cattle (fake, of course).

Thrill seekers won’t be able to say no to riding The Wild Stallion mountain coaster! You’ll have a blast coasting down the mountainside and flying around every turn until it’s over.

This Sevierville attraction takes pride in the heritage of the Smokies, and that includes paying homage to the people who first came to the area. That’s why they offer live music every day from world-class musician Gary “Biscuit” Davis, who actually played for Dolly Parton for more than 20 years!

SkyLand Ranch isn’t just a place for entertainment, it’s also a place where you can take it easy. There are several places throughout the Ranch where you can sit down and relax as you look out at the beautiful views of the Smoky Mountains.
