Ride this in October for some very nice fall foliage scenery. Ride is smooth and comfortable, only a few seats so most will stand. At the top I have been disappointed with Ober Gatlinburg since it was not ski season. However the ride up and down is nice, although a little expensive in my opinion.

Amazing views of the Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg. It's awesome to see the vacation homes tucked into the side of the mountain. The ride up was very crowded, but the ride down was not. Your admission fee allows you to ride up and down the mountain all day. There are some cool family activities at the facility at the top... More

If your looking for a great view and great pictures, take the tram then take the chair lift to the top. There were visitors of all ages and all the staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a neat thing to do while in Gatlinburg. The ride up the mountain is amazingly smooth. At the top is an ice skating rink, water slide and another tram to go up another mountain. There is also a nature thing with animals that has bears, bobcats and other animals. The animals are all in small enclosures and it... More

What a view of Gatlinburg and the mountains! This was definitely worth the price and I will be riding it again on future trips to Gatlinburg. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Gatlinburg.

My husband and I both spent our 6 month wedding anniversary in Pigeon Forge TN and came to Gatlinburg to ride the Ober Tram. We have never done this before it was our first time. It was a wonderful ride and so beautiful views of the smoky mountains. We would recommend anyone to do this.

We enjoy riding the Tram up and down just to look at the incredible scenery. We also enjoy going down a ramp to see the workings of the tram. Our operator, Erica, came by the viewing area and explained a lot of what we were looking at. She had the answers my retired NASA engineer asked. Very knowledgeable! One fee... More

We went on tne Ober Gatlinburg aerial tramway up the mountain to the amusement park. It was a really enjoyable experience. The gondola car was clean and well maintained. The trip was easy and the views both ways were great. It is round trip for one price and can be used for two days. It goes to the amusement park... More

When this ride gets busy you really can't get the full effect of it. In our case it was quite crowded on the way up and much quieter on the way down - the views on the way down were nothing short of spectacular and for this reason it was definitely worth the trip. If you're unfortunate enough for it... More
