A New Adventure a New Opportunity

A unique outdoor mountain experience for all ages starting with a scenic 12-minute ride to the summit of Anakeesta mountain on a quad chair or a 6 person gondola cabin where you will arrive at Firefly Village, a whimsical treehouse-themed village where you can stroll a treetop walk on 14 hanging bridges more than 40 feet in the air, take a high-speed single mountain coaster, or dueling zip lines.

Located immediately adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park over looking the city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Scenic views of Mt. LeConte and the Smoky Mountains abound.

Jobs in the Spotlight

About Anakeesta, LLC

We love the Smoky Mountains and we experience the majesty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, our immediate neighbor. We love working outside in all the elements and all the seasons! We love for our team members to laugh, to enjoy themselves, learn to grow and develop toward their full potential! We are brand new, so as we grow so will our team members.

Nothing is more adventurous than to be at the beginning of a new venture.  So, if you like working outside in an incredible environment, zipping through a tree canopy, walking on a suspended bridge over 40 feet above the ground, riding a coaster down our own Anakeesta mountain and meeting new people, then we may be the company you are looking to join and grow!
