Though expensive, we enjoyed ice skating at Ober Gatlinburg. The staff is friendly and helpful. They give you 3 hours of skate time which is great for beginners. The view is awesome, but we felt the parking price was too high as there were very few people even there the day we went.

We went to Gatlinburg over Spring Break, and we always go ice skating at Ober Gatlinburg when we are there. Family fun we all enjoy! The car ride up the mountain is not for the faint of heart, but I couldn't stomach the aerial tram. Some cheesy shops there too, but not much else unless its solidly winter (skiing) or... More

Ober Gatlinburg is probably the main attraction in Gatlinburg, but it is not for everybody. The prices are not cheap and the actual place has a bit of a carnival feel to it. There are plenty of things to do here, but all come with a price. Look before you go to see if there are winter or summer activities.... More

For a $5 parking fee, you can drive up the mountain to this attraction area. If you prefer to take the tram, you can do that for $12 per person round trip. The tram would be a better view, but depending on the size of your family, it can get pricey. I'm not a crowd person, so I shy away... More

We have been to Gatlinburg several times but had never been to Ober Gatlinburg. We really just wanted to ride the tram and just see what all they had to offer. We got lucky and got there early so there wasn't a lot of people on the tram we rode but if you are just wanting to ride the tram... More

We did the tubing with our 4 kids. Our 3 and 6 year old boys went down 2 times and then wanted hot chocolate. Our 11 year old girl and 13 year old boy went down over and over for the entire time (1 1/2 hours). They loved it! My husband and I also enjoyed it. It was snowing most... More

We chose a winter vacay this year (Jan) to celebrate my teen's 18th bday. Were absolutely lucky to find a winter special at the bearskin lodge, within walking distance to Obergatlinburg (which I've been to once before in August). I was very nervous about coming here for snow tubing after reading all the reviews on trip advisor. I took those... More

Over Gatlinburg is worth the Tram ride, round trip. At the top is a ski slope along with an ice skating rink, numerous shops, sking equipment, rentals, numerous food places and an arcade for the younger ones Worthy of your time and money while in Gatlinburg Tennessee
