If you missed experiencing Gatlinburg SkyBridge transformed into a tunnel of lights for the holidays, you're in luck.

This month, lovebirds will definitely want to pay a visit to Gatlinburg SkyLift Park for some Cupid-inspired fun on the longest pedestrian-only suspension bridge in North America. The popular Gatlinburg attraction is getting a makeover for Valentine's Day, with a "Love is in the air" celebration featuring  red-and white lights on the SkyBridge and a floral display wrapped around the gateways on each end of the bridge.  On the weekends of February 8th-9th and February 15th-16th, a flower cart with custom bouquets for purchase will also be on-site. The Valentine's Day-inspired lights debuted yesterday and will remain there until the end of the month, when the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park team will switch over to different themed lights on the bridge for March. “Love is in the air” tickets are available at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park ticket office or online here.

“Millions visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park each year, and so many of those guests stop to see our record-breaking SkyBridge along the way,” said Randy Watson, general manager, in a company press release. “We always want to offer something memorable and photo-worthy, and with the overwhelming response to our holiday lights event, this new Valentine’s Day celebration will be an excellent follow-up.”

Through March 31st, Gatlinburg SkyLift Park is also teaming up with Ole Red in downtown Gatlinburg for a “Smoky Mountain Ride & Dine” package, which includes a $50 dinner for two at Ole Red and two Gatlinburg SkyLift Park admission tickets, for $89. Buy tickets here.

Since the SkyBridge opened in May, it has been the site of dozens of proposals, including an uptick of about two-to-three proposals per week during the Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve season. We're sure with Valentine's Day around the corner there will be plenty more dreamy proposals suspended high above Gatlinburg to come.
