This place is more for a ski resort than amusement park. There are a few little rides, mazes, slides for the kids to do. The alpine coaster was active. We took the ski lift to the top of mount Harrison. As always, beautiful view, but not as good as during the fall with all the beautiful colors. Little band playing... More

This was a great way to see more of the Great Smokies. The tram operator gave us a lot of information on the way up to the resort. The restaurant was average. Lots of things to do for the kids.

I went for the views, and to take the ski lift to the top. $7 roundtrip. I also enjoyed the tram ride to get there. There was an entertaining bluegrass group at the very top which was fun. The whole place has a tacky feel. That said, if you want to ice skate, or ride the alpine slides, then there... More

The tram ride was really nice and the driver was outstanding. This guy had endless one liners and made the ride up really fun. Once on top it was nice and super clean. While fun I felt it was overpriced, even for this area. It's coupon based so the tickets can get pricy depending on what you do.

This was a cool little place that my 3 and 5 year old really enjoyed. It is also rather inexpensive to buy a day pass for unlimited rides (approximately $20 per person). There are "dry" water rides, that I managed to get drenched on, where one rides a small raft down a waterslide that are a lot of fun, a... More

We took the tram up for the afternoon which was pretty memorable. Once we got there the other reveiws are right it is pretty out dated. The chair lift to the top had a very nice veiw. The two teens we had with us went on the alpine slide once that was all they wanted to do nothing else for... More

Decided to drive up to Ober instead of taking the big tram, as we knew we would ride the chair lift while there so we could ride the mountain slide! They charge $5 to park which after going through Ober is a huge rip off! This place is very outdated and the staff they have running it seem to be... More

The sky tram was amazing! Family friendly. Love the ski school, the skating rink, tubing, snowboarding and all of it. So happy I took my friends advice and visited this place while in Gatlinburg. As a Floridian, I was so thrilled to see snowy slopes. They even have a pressed penny machine :)

We rode the tram up, bought the passes for unlimited rides on the activities and had a ball. The water slides did not get you overly wet...just a little splash...so no bathing suit needed but tons of fun, the alpine slide was fantastic for adult and child alike, and the chair lift ride to the top was just beautiful. Highly... More

I rode the tram with my 11 year old daughter. She was slightly afraid but I think truthfully she really enjoyed the thrill of it. The Wild Life Encounter was a disappointment. It wasnt overly expensive to get in, but what you got for your money wasn't much. And the bears habitat is pretty sorry. Id rather pay just a... More
