My husband and I took the tram up to ride the mountain coasters. We felt $12 a piece to go up the mountain was a bit expensive. You are packed in like sardines, up to 100+ people in each car.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the aerial tram. This is not an attraction for the faint of heart or for anyone scared of heights. The trip is well worth the anxiety and you can enjoy a wonderful view of the National Park. It is a bit pricey for the round trip ride, but you can also drive almost to... More

A nice relaxing tram ride to the Ober Gatlinburg attractions. The operators are fun and can offer great suggestions for Gatlinburg attractions and food. Be sure to ride the Ski Mountain Coaster once you reach the top. It is well worth the price.

Decent price per person for a scenic trip up the mountain. And who knows? You might spot a bear down below! We saw one!

I was hesitant to do this, but glad we did. You do need to arrive about 30-45mibs before your scheduled skiing or snow tubing.

On the way up we had 10 people and was able to walk around and take pictures and not feel crowded or unsafe. However on the way back there was so many people you couldn't move and it was very uneasy feeling for me. I couldn't take any pictures .

My girlfriend and I had already drove to Ober the prior day to go Skiing but decided to do the Aerial Tram just for the view but it was decent at best. The cars are crowded and you only get a decent view if you get a spot by the windows. It was fast and did provide a view of... More

Grandson thought this was the greatest thing Grandma did with him. I was his hero that day and enjoyed sharing this experience with my grandson and adult children.
