Is this how high Santa flies?😱
Skylift Park Skybridge Gatlinburg Tennessee Worlds Longest

The Skybridge at Skylift Park in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is the longest pedestrian bridge in North America, and it's lighting up for the holidays.

The bridge is 680 feet long and it's suspended 150 feet in the air above a deep valley, giving breathtaking panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains. 

Starting November 13, the bridge will be transformed into a walk-through light show tunnel of over 40,000 twinkling lights for Lights Over Gatlinburg

A 300-foot tunnel suspended in mid-air will be covered in a canopy of colorful holiday lights and glowing trees.

The lights in the tunnel will be animated to music, so you can sing along to your favorite holiday classics as you walk high above the ground. 

At the bridge's highest point, you have to walk across 30 feet of glass panels that look straight down at the valley far, far below. 

Skylift Park is also home to a massive 30-foot-tall Christmas tree, a scenic chairlift that brings you up the mountain, and a Skydeck that looks out over Gatlinburg. 

The park is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., but you'll want to go after dark to truly experience the suspension bridge in its glistening holiday glory.
