Book your tubing as soon as possible to ensure it doesn't sell out. Get there early to enjoy full time allowed

We are glad that you enjoyed Ober Gatlinburg! Snow tubing is one of our most popular activities in the winter, and does tend to sell out in advance during holiday periods. More

We prepaid to go snow tubing, the price was reasonable, but what they dont tell you is that you have to pay another $13 a person to take the tram there and wait in line up to 2 hours each way. Anxiety sets in when you have a time slot and don't know if you will make it, if you... More

We have been up the mountain many times. This is a nice ride and great way to see much of Gatlinburg. There is a lot to do when you get to the top.

This ski resort was everything that we came for. We participated in the Snow Tubing and rode the coaster. Everyone was so friendly and helpful during our visit and the prices were really good. Parking was limited at the top so we rode the Tram to the top which was amazing and had some of the best views in the... More

A little out dated but overall a great family place with a lot of fun things to do BUT everything was outrageously priced. From a couples stand point is was $26 to ride the tram to the park and then another $50 for tubing. We tubed at 9am. By 10:30 we were done and had spent $76. There needs to... More

If you're going to do hard core skiing this isn't the place for you. The staff is all fantastic. The skiing and tubing area is small. The bunny slope and two main trails were open. And the tubing. Get tubing tickets in advance. The skating is a good deal of $9 for 3 hours. If you want your kids to... More

We visited Ober on Monday 02/13. I visited with my 6 year old son and boyfriend. I bought my son the all access pass to ice skating and the chair lift, the alpine coaster and the animal encounter as well as the cubby corner. The ice skating was OK the attendants looked bored. The animal encounter was also OK as... More

My wife and I spent almost all day here on our vacation. We met some awesome staff here that made our day. Covey, who was working at the Tubing attraction was friendly and personable. Bobby, who worked the Tram returning back kept cracking the best jokes and was a really nice person when we talked to him after the ride.... More

Family trip with kids from 7 to 22. Lots to do for all ages. Wildlife encounter was very small & a bit sad due to smaller habitat areas for animals. Everyone enjoys the scenic lift & alpine slide. However, it barely rained so slide closed for an extended period. It took the staff too long to reopen after rain stopped.... More

Thank you and your family for visiting Ober Gatlinburg. We work very hard to keep our animals happy and healthy. Our facility was updated in 2007, while working within the original parameters of the facility. It is inspected yearly by both TWRA and USDA. Unfortunately, we do have to close our Alpine Slide when it rains for safety reasons, if... More
