We went there on a Sunday, arrived around 10am. Parking lot was pretty empty and so was the park itself. Some amazing views and cool trails to walk thru. Typical gift shops on your way out. This is one of those places you visit once,maybe twice but is still well worth it.
Went with friends to Rock City without any expectation. We were blown away by all the activity options! An expensive ticket, but very worth it!

I took my three kids to do the whole Rock City, Ruby, Incline, Aquarium, and IMAX trip. The entire trip was a blast! Rock City was always my favorite as a kid and it certainly didn't disappoint me as an adult. My friends thought my kids wouldn't like it (ages 9-14). They had the best time and are still talking about it and want to go back.

I remember Rock City and Ruby Falls, as a great place to go. Every year I traveled from my grandparents house in Virginia to my other grandparents in Alabama, we would stop at Rock City, every year, mostly because I begged to. Around 6, I remember being scared of the swinging bridge, and I would have to walk across the stone brige close by and fearful to look over the edge at Lookout Mt., I remember, my Mom bribing me with a t-shirt that had the gnome on it, if I would look over. I ran looked and ran back. :) But as an adult, a few years ago, I went back, it was just as glorious as I remember, this time I wasn't scared at all. I still have very fond memories and look forward to taking my son there in the near future. I highly recommend Rock City!!
The lines were long and moved slowly. Rubly falls was my favorite. We stayed in Chattanooga and didn't have a great hotel experience. There are some great places to stay, but we didn't research first. We were in a bad area and there were youth baseball tournament players staying there. The tickets & food were a bit pricey. It wasn't a bad experience, just not one of my favorites.
Rock City Gardens is a lovely place to visit. Combine a ride on the incline railway, and a visit to Ruby Falls and you will have a full and satisfying day on Lookout Mountain. It's cost effective for families and great exercise. At Christmas the lights are lovely and in fall the colors breathtaking.
