Enjoyed the tram. Many activities at the top like ice skating and skiing for those who enjoy it. There was a zoo but I didn't see any animals.

The ride is nice and the view is amazing. My kids love the swing in the tram. Is not expensive as compared to other attractions in other cities.

This was on my list to do in Gatlinburg, TN and it offered an amazing view. If it's a busy time of year then be sure to go early to purchase the Gondola tickets as the line is long. Then you proceed to another long line to enter on the Gondola. I wasn't nervous initially but once you started to... More

Great views on the way up and down. Make sure you take your camera and get on the outside looking towards the city as the views are awesome enroute to the top!
