This place has lots to do. It has wonderful views! You go up in an air tram. It doesn't have much seating but there are places for you to hang on to. It was a smooth ride that was not scary even if you're afraid...More

Overall the experience was just ok. When you arrive at the top (after standing armpit to armpit with others in the cable car) you arrive at an outdated building that smelled musty and had old shops with junk in them. The mountain coaster was fun...More

Overpriced and overrated. Tram ride is nice - but no need for the folks taking pictures to clog up the line for those who could care less. Really - get out of the way! Workers are rude - really if you don't want a job,...More

Ride the highest point of the mountain in downtown Gatlinburg. Right now see the fire devastation from the gondola ride. See the town from above. On top there is all sorts of things to do. Lines are long but it moves.

Ober is a Gatlinburg staple, you have to go there. The alpine slide is fantastic and the ski lift chairs up to the scenic overlook is just breathtaking. A great value and a great place to visit.

It depends on what you want to do at Ober Gatlinburg. I just wanted to ride the aerial tram to and from the top, so I was happy with the ride. The ride attendant was very pleasant and gave us some history and talked about...More

It looks the same as it did back in the 70s and 80s... it needs work especially at those prices... but yet we still go each visit for the Alpine Slide only, still a family favorite ride!! But the main building itself needs a HUGE...More

Can you take a water-resistant purse on the water rides? On all the rides?

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.
Will there be any snow activities available here in Mid October ? If so, what are they ?

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.
