The entire Ober experience was fun....I plan to go again soon in January. Ober was clean, not too crowded and fair prices.

Our group took the tram to the Ober Gatlinburg area. The operator made the trip fun, as well as scenic. We were told that we could travel again the next day for free, but we were leaving for home. At the top, there is a bear area (extra cost), ice skating (extra cost), shopping and cafes. We ate a dessert... More

If you've never done this, do it once. If you have a large family, might be more budget friendly to drive and pay for parking at top. We have two kids and paid $30 to go up round trip. I think parking is $10 maybe? Not positive but I was disappointed we paid so much to ride this because once... More

We live in Texas where we don't have mountains -- this was beautiful and breath taking. Our tour guide was great, price was well worth it. Enjoyed this so much.

My wife and I took our daughter on this to Ober. It was a good time the tram conductor if that's what you call her was funny and talkative on the way down. On top of the mountain there was a lot of kids things to do. We just walked around and came back down the hill. The ride was... More

Finally some renovations. Some new updates in Ober but still some work to do. Way to $$ just to ride the tram and skylift up.

My husband and I rode the tram to the top enjoying the car conductors information about the trip up. Fun fact and silly sense of humor! Car was a little crowded for my taste but the view is wonderful. Octoberfest had started that day so we enjoyed some fun German food and ales. Rode the chair lift to the top... More

This is a must if you want an excellent view of the city and mountains without the effort of walking a trail for a few hours for the view! We found the price to be very reasonable and there is a lot more to do up there for a price when you reach the top,but if it is just a... More

Don't drive up to Ober Gatlinburg, take the tramway. It is worth the ride. The road up is steep, curvy and not as wide as you would wish.

The tramway ride was neat and alpine slide and chairlift okay. But you can skip all of the rest because its nothing but money making operations and one can find all the other attractions in their local city\town for much cheaper. The gun machine stand was open but once you put in $$ you realise there are no shots coming... More
