We got to experience this at night & I must say that it has some of the most beautiful views of the entire place. Just seeing the houses dotted among the stars was just breathtaking. There is one point where you feel a "tip" as the tram changes, well I thought I would die, lol. It's still a great attraction... More

Wow! Wow! Wow! My 3 kids loved the ride up. It is a smooth ride both up & down. Windows on the tramway do open a small bit. just enough to let air flow through. There are a couple of seats for those who cannot stand,but most passengers do stand. What a view of Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountains, just... More

Enjoyed the ride, but the resort was a ghost town. Wish they had more to do in the off season. The tram operator on the way up was amusing, but chose to make an odd religious comment at the top, that made our group feel a little ostracized.

I'm scared of heights, but this ride is so safe! Holds a lot of people. When you reach the top, ice skating and pretty cheap food awaits. But really fun.

Maybe it is because it was the off season, but a thing they don't tell you is that when you buy a ticket you can get your hand stamped and it is good for two days. So if you are with kids, you can take multiple trips in your two days. We did that and it takes the sting off... More

My family loved it. The ride was fun and visually exciting. The park at the top was fantastic. Bears and other animals and the Alpine slide were fantastic. Beware of the slide! My ife took my oldest so and I took my other son and we had a race. The warnings say that you can be injured. YOU CAN. I... More

So worth it! The unobstructed view from the lift chairs is unbelievable. First leg of the trip takes you to gift shops, eateries, and rides. Be sure to make the second leg of the trip and go all the way to the top!
