Had a good ride on the tram then took the sky ride further up the mountain. Beautiful views entertaining music at the top. There is an ice rink at first level, also restaurant did not try but had a pretzel and it was good. Staff friendly and helpful. There are also shops.

My husband asked if they offered a military discount. The employee said they do, but then snipped a quick remark back to us and followed it up with : "Well do you want a ticket or not, I mean you don't have to get one or take the discount either!" We both found this totally disrespectful and rude! My husband... More

Loved the view of the mountains and seeing all the chalets from up above. Great place for shopping and grabbing a snack.

We enjoyed the views, probably more to do up there in the winter time. Will probably go visit on next trip we make.

Even if you're not crazy about heights, you really must do this! The tram ride up the mountain is smooth and gives you spectacular views, but once you reach the park, take the chair lift up. The view there is unrivaled by anything else I've ever experienced!

Ride up to the mountain was fun. The wait was a little long, especially the 2-3 hour wait to come off the mountain. It does need a little upgrading.

The tram was closed for maintenance so we drove up the mountain. The inside was very very dated, like a 1970's roller rink. We walked around the few stores and left. The Alpine Slide was closed which was disappointing as well.

We really enjoyed our time at ober Gatlinburg- we had hiked the Grotto falls trail in the morning before we came here- and believe it or not Ober Gatlinburg was less crowded and more scenic than the trail! We did the alpine slide for 7.00 and enjoyed it. We had already ridden 2 other mountain coasters so we skipped that... More
