Everything seemed very dated and the zoo was pretty sad. Things were pricey and priced individually so it adds up quickly. We chose not to do the unlimited wristband because the only things we were interested in were not included. The only reason we are glad we went is because we took the chair lift up and saw the stunning... More

They pack so many people on that not everyone has something to hold on to. You get rocked around and you have to keep your balance. There is almost nothing to do at the top of the mountain, the shops are run down and old. Save your money

My wife and I were a little nervous as we have never been on a tram before and this one held about 40 people. It turned out to be a smooth ride and we felt very safe. This location is a ski resort and in the summer turned into an amusement park and ice skating rink. The rides are designed... More

Great fun! First time ever snow tubing and it was lots of fun. Ice skating is an annual affair for our Gatlinburg trips.Can purchase tubing tickets ahead of time to avoid long lines.

We all loved riding the tram into town then back to ober where we rode to from our nearby chalet. Ober was fun too we rode the chair lift to the very top. They had musicians playing music and the view was beyond awesome! Don't forget your camera!

I love this place. The ride up on the tram provides an awesome view of the mountain side cabins going up, including the "Cliff Hanger" and a great shot of the city coming down. Ober has a great Mountain Coaster and Alpine Slide, plus the Chairlift to the top is spactacular...Ice Skating, Water Slides, Maze, Wildlife encounter it's a blast.

Lots of fun going on in Ober Gatlinburg! Love watching everyone try their best in the ice skating rink. There are small shop around the inside perimeter of the resort, as well some food venues. The tube ride fills up in a hurry - so get your tickets for that early!

The mountain coaster was so much fun. We also rode the ski-lift and then the Tram down to Gatlinburg. It was so much fun seeing the mountains from the sky! Lots to do at Ober!

Had a wonderful day here - wasn't expecting much but we had a blast. The ride up and down is breathtaking!!!!! Little kitchy things to do at the top including a sanctuary for animals.
