The temperature is dropping, the leaves are changing, and Anakeesta is ready to celebrate one of the most beautiful seasons in the Smokies!
A Spooky Celebration
Bear sightings are pretty common in the mountains, but what about alien, witch and superhero sightings? That’s what you’ll see if you come celebrate Halloween at Anakeesta! We’ll be dressing up and offering trick-or-treating for our little goblin guests, tasty fall treats and even some night time ziplining!
All of our young guests will be given a trick-or-treat bag at the information booth in Firefly Village, and there will be 9 different stations to trick-or-treat on the mountain. We’ll have fun Halloween decor and staff in costumes to put kids of all ages in the Halloween spirit.
*Oct. 27th – OPEN @ 10 AM, last ticket will be sold at 9 p.m., Firefly Village will close at 10 p.m.
*Oct. 28th – OPEN @ 9 AM, last ticket will be sold at 9 p.m., Firefly Village will close at 10 p.m.

In addition to trick-or-treating all day, we’re offering night time ziplining and rappelling! As if ziplining wasn’t thrilling enough, you’ll be zipping in the dark with a headlamp right into the arms of our ghoulish guides! *OPEN @ 10 AM, last ticket will be sold at 8 p.m., Firefly Village will close at 9 p.m.
Red, Orange and Yellow, Oh My!
Looking for the perfect spot to take in the spectacular fall foliage of the Great Smoky Mountains? Anakeesta offers 360 degree panoramic mountain views as well as plenty of spots to sit, relax and take in the scenery. Want a closer look? Stroll through our tree canopy walk and get a bird’s eye view of several different kinds of trees that are found in the Smokies including oaks, poplars and walnuts.
A Taste of Autumn
We’ve added apple pie, pumpkin pie and pecan pie to the menu at Pearl’s Pie in the Sky throughout the fall season. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect fall treat!
Honoring Our Heroes
November 28th will mark the one year anniversary of the wildfires that devastated Gatlinburg. As a way to show our thanks to all the first responders who courageously fought the fires we will offer FREE admission to all Sevier County police officers, firefighters and EMT’s as well as their immediate families for the entire month of November.
