Ober Gatlinburg was great and is very misleading from the start. We heard about all kinds of rides but the entrance didn't have any. We took an amazing ride up 2 miles on the... read more

Very affordable. We loved the tram ride up, with the tour guide giving explanations. What a view! Then we get up there and lots of fun things to do, see, eat and shop. The ride to the top, on the ski lift gave us an awesome view. They had rides we did not get to do, for time reasons, but... More

Starters....drive up and pay just $5....ride the gondola and it will cost you $48! Payed for the basic wristbands for unlimited attractions!...the alpine slide was the favorite...water slides. Swings..maze...and chair lift to the top. The ice skating, "zoo", and roller coaster are extra.. The gondola ride put a damper on the trip....only runs twice an hour and again...$48 before paying...

Had a very enjoyable afternoon there with friends. Lots of things to do and see there. Might be a little pricey for a family of 4, but enjoyable anyway

The tram ride up was packed. About 70 people in the car. Thankfully there was a breeze once we got moving but it wasn't a scenic ride up or down. Rides up top are for younger children and look a bit run down. We enjoyed the self paced roller coaster but it's $15 for a 2 minute ride if you... More

We wanted to see the views from the cable car without driving an hour into the park, and weren't disappointed. The mountains are fantastic. But the ski lodge area at the top is looking a bit shabby, as are some of the rides. We paid $32 just for the cable car, and $31 for a book of ten tickets that... More

Ober Gatlinburg was great and is very misleading from the start. We heard about all kinds of rides but the entrance didn't have any. We took an amazing ride up 2 miles on the mountain and saw the real attraction. Tons of rides and all of them reasonably priced.

My extended family had the ice skating rink to ourselves on Saturday morning when it opened. It was fun for Florida kids and Boston/Philly kids alike. Mall at the top of the lift is looking a bit dated. Other attractions at top are expensive if you don't suck it up and buy a bracelet.

We drove to ober Gatlinburg and had to pay $5 to park...really? We took the tram down to downtown Gatlinburg and at $12, it's a rip off. The cram you in like sardines. The BEST place on the tram is by the front or the back, somewhere near the windows as it gets incredibly hot on the tram. We also... More

Spent a good day here, summer is not the best time to visit for the real picturesque sights. Lots to do, doesn't take long to ramp up a big spend if not careful.

The aerial tram to get up to the fun gives you a great view. Make sure you're one of the first in line so you can get the best view inside the tram. Once you're at the top, talk about an adrenaline rush, had a blast doing the alpine coaster twice. You control your own speed but you don't have... More
