Where is Skyland Ranch?

1620 Parkway, Sevierville, TN

Right across the main Parkway (441) from Tanger Outlets and next door to Five Oaks Farm Kitchen.

There is a great view of Skyland Ranch chair lift from Five Oak Farm Kitchen, which I HIGHLY recommend eating at, by the way.

Is Skyland Ranch Open?  When is Skyland Ranch Opening?


The Wild Stallion Mountain Coaster (see video of my ride here) is also open!  The opening date was November 4, 2022

Skyland Ranch intends to be open 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

What about Parking?

Parking is free.  There will be 400-500 spaces to park near the entrance and overflow parking will be across the Parkway, with free shuttle service bringing guest back and forth.

Who owns Skyland Ranch?

Mark and Lisa Williford, the same owners of the very popular and successful Rowdy Bear Adventure Parks in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

Horizon Skyride

At the main entrance, you will buy your tickets for this hybrid chairlift.  This is how you will take the 9-minute ride up to the top of Skyland Ranch. You will have the option of an open air cabin or a chair. 

There will also be a drive-up shuttle option for those who don't want to ride up on the chairlift.  

Souvenir photos can also be purchased.

The views of the Smoky Mountains from the top will be gorgeous, and at night, the city view will be just as beautiful. 

Wild Stallion Mountain Coaster

The longest mountain coaster in the Southeast!  With beautiful views!

Over a mile long.  The Skyland Mountain Coaster is a single car with a brake, so you are in full control of your ride. There is a spot for a child to sit in front and ride with an adult.

Will have a 375 pound weight limit, so everyone can ride! 


Also, you DO NOT have to enter the chairlift or the theme park to ride the Wild Stallion Mountain Coaster!

Legacy Lookout

Wide scenic walkway bridge that rises 350 feet above the Sevierville & Pigeon Forge Parkway for beautiful 360-degree views of the entire area.

The mountain coaster winds its way under and around the bridge too.  The views from the coaster and from the Lookout are wonderful! Nothing else like it. 

Good news! This 150 ft. long bridge is ADA accessible with a ramp so that anyone in a wheelchair can enjoy it.

Miniature Farm Animals

Tour the barns and get a chance to interact with rescue miniature horses, donkeys, goats, sheep and cows and other miniature farm animals throughout the park.
