The ride up on the tram was great. Amazing views and a fun experience. Upon reaching the top we were less than impressed. They have many attractions but all were not as advertised. The whole place is run down, needs some maintenance and some sprucing...More

We did not realize that you cannot ride the car up, stay on board, and ride the car back down. You must disembark from the car at the top. We went during a holiday, so we knew it would be busy. We waited in line...More

Might have been more fun for families with little kids. The alpine slide was pretty fun the second time we rode it; the first time they sent us down too close to the people in front of us. Husband was injured on the mountain coaster....More

You can take a purse with you on all the rides at Ober Gatlinburg except the mountain coaster. I am not positive about the water slide but lockers are available. Also, shoes with straps must be worn on the mountain... More

Actually, you can - if you don't mind it getting a bit wet. There are three water rides. Only one got us a bit wet. The other two - only a very little. My purse got a bit damp, but was fine.

They usually don't start making snow until after Thanksgiving. Last October it was up in the 90's!!! You just never know around here what the weather will do.
