Out of all the things I have done in Gatlinburg... this was the only thing I feel is a waste of time and a bit of tourist trap. You spend 12 bucks to ride the tram up the mountain (best part) and then get off in a tiny area with a a single beer tent no real German influence or... More

We rode the tram to the top ($12 ea) which provided nice views of the valley. Once at the top (with a 6 month old baby) we had the option to buy tickets for only those activities of interest. The Mountain Coaster was what we chose (except for the baby), and was exciting enough to purchase tickets for an additional... More

Our family visited Ober Galtinburg this week. We enjoyed ice skating, riding the coaster, ski lift and much more. Everyone was laid back and friendly. Cannot wait to visit again.

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

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!
