Anakeesta is an award-winning theme park located in the heart of Downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Our name literally means “the place of high ground” in the Cherokee language, so it is only fitting we are situated on 70-acre mountain 600 feet above the city. The journey to Anakeesta begins with a scenic Chondola ride from the busy Parkway in downtown Gatlinburg to the summit of Anakeesta Mountain. Here guests enter a world of whimsy and discover treetop adventures, a lush botanical garden, shopping, and dining all amongst the backdrop of the sweeping views of the national park. Our nature immersive park offers an authentic Smoky Mountain experience for families of all ages.

This is a SEASONAL position beginning in October and ending in January!

Gatlinburg is the gateway city to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As the most visited national park in the United States, the area sees up to 12 million visitors annually. Travelers from around the world enjoy the hiking, attractions, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment that can be found in our area.
