Hmmm if only there was a place you could do all three….? Here are your Top 5 Reasons to plan your Fall Break at Anakeesta.
1 ) Autumn at Anakeesta and Legend of Hallow Mountain special events!
For all ages throughout the day, Autumn at Anakeesta will offer family-friendly crafts, games, activities, and fall-inspired treats for all. But then…as the nightlife awakens…the Treetop Skywalk with 16 skybridges will transform into a Firefly Forest Experience, treasures start to glow at Anakeesta Gem Mining, outdoor Halloween movies appear, then our mountain coaster and zipline rides turn into haunted adventures, and the Vista Garden Walk transforms into the spooktacular Hallow Mountain Graveyard where the undead rise to seek their way off Hallow Mountain….are you brave enough to enter?!
2 ) Fall-themed Sweet Treats, Warm Drinks, and Cocktails Galore
The same delicious Anakeesta menus with new fall favorites! For a limited time only, enjoy the view from our Cliff Top Grill & Bar with a Beetlejuice cocktail or Spooky Shirley Temple (non-alcoholic) warm up with some Cauldron Chili or Dark Night Nachos, and cure your sweet tooth with a homemade Halloween cookie from Pearl’s Pie in the Sky. Visit any of our Anakeesta restaurants and get your fall-food fix!
3 ) Fall in the Smoky Mountains
Picture this – the crisp mountain air, the perfect view of the national park, and every shade of fall you could dream of painted on the trees. Experince the wonder of looking over the famous Mt. LeConte range and immerse yourself in the beautiful Smoky Mountains 600 feet above downtown Gatlinburg without the hike! Experience our Treetop Skywalk and put yourself in the trees, race down the mountainside on our Rail Runner mountain coaster, or cruise along a forested path on our Ridge Ramblers. What better way to enjoy fall than in the mountains?
4 ) Fun for the Whole Family
Looking for an adventure? Test your courage on our Dueling Ziplines or fly down the mountainside with 1,600 feet of twists and turns on the Rail Runner. Want to take it easy? Stroll through our beautiful Vista Gardens, an enchanting botanical garden that features a variety of plants and flowers, a 20-foot tall Willow Man sculpture, plenty of swinging benches, and an interactive BearVenture challenge course. When you are ready to eat, stroll over to Anakeesta’s Smokehouse and try our Smoked Beef Brisket or munch on a Great Outdoors Chicken Sandwich from Cliff Top Grill & Bar. Whether you are looking to relax and enjoy the view, play with your family, or eat a delicious meal, there’s something for everyone at Anakeesta.
