Loved the tram ride. Fun thing to do that's not too pricey. Had a nice relaxing time at ober gatlinburg. Shops and snack shops at the top. We lucked out and was situated near the windows on the tram so the scenery was awesome.

Beautiful trip up and down. Love the ambiance and wondering about ski season. The attractions add up but I highly recommend the trip up the ski lift scenic ride.

The tramway was just as advertised. Great views of the area, 10 minute trip to the top of the mountain. $12 roundtrip.

We took this trip up with our 6 year old. The driver, Chris, was so friendly told us jokes and completely entertained the group the entire ride. He seemed to really enjoy his job and showed it. I always enjoy people who enjoy doing their job. I recommend going up and enjoying the time up in Ober.

This was a neat ride up to the Ober Gatlinburg area. We has had lunch up at the restaurant and then rode back down. Pretty neat if you have kids and want to go to the amusement park the lift is good for unlimited rides for two days

Great experience taking the entire family on this tram. I would definitely suggest everyone take the ride up to the Ober Gatlinburg, not only for the views and the experience, but once at the top it is very family friendly environment.

Loved the tram. Took plenty pictures while on there. Beautiful view. The cost to ride wasn't too bad. Once you get to other side there is so much to do. Very very kid friendly. Lots of rides for them and us grown up also.

This a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. The ride up and down on the Tramway is a great experience and good views. Activities for your young people and nice shops. A great German Restaurant with entertainment. We go there for my husband's birthday.

Great View, lots to do at the top. Take the chair lift further up the mountain to the top and listen to the free bluegrass band Mountain Grass. Very good music.
