Views are spectacular. Wildlife experience was okay. Guess I was expecting a little better, but great for small kids

The staff is very friendly! Be sure to take the ski lift up to the higher part if the mountains for spectacular views and photo options. If you weren't having any luck seeing bears it may be worth the "animal encounter"

Its a good but expensive way to see the scenic beauty of the mountains. Try it for one time but there is a better drive way.

The tram trip up the mountain is well worth the cost. After getting to the top the scenery over look of the mountains is beautiful. Make sure to take your time and visit the gift shops & get a bite to eat.

The tram takes you from the Gatlingburg Village to the top of the mountain. You may begin you trip at the top or bottom. We rode it down from the top and back twice because our lodge was near the top of the mountain. The views are spectacular! This tram is a good deal because your fare is good for... More

takes you up to a mountain that has a indoor ice skating ring not much to do up there but the views from up top are pretty cool. If you do decided to go you can find many coupons in the area that will help save some money

$42 for our family of 4. The ride was ok, I didn't thing the views were all that great and when you got to the top there was nothing to do except pay another $6 for your kids to ride a cheap carousel. Big waste of $$$

The tram ride was great with awesome views. Then, the chair lift to the very top was peaceful and quiet. Very enjoyable time with my wife of 41 years!! The ski lodge facilities were very nice. Worth the $$$ and the time!!

I think there are probably better places that you can get better pictures than this tram. But it was a nice experience. One of the downsides is that you have to wait 20-30 minutes for a tram ride up and back down because they only run that far apart. All in all it was a good view but also everything... More
