My extended family had the ice skating rink to ourselves on Saturday morning when it opened. It was fun for Florida kids and Boston/Philly kids alike. Mall at the top of the lift is looking a bit dated. Other attractions at top are expensive if you don't suck it up and buy a bracelet.

We drove to ober Gatlinburg and had to pay $5 to park...really? We took the tram down to downtown Gatlinburg and at $12, it's a rip off. The cram you in like sardines. The BEST place on the tram is by the front or the back, somewhere near the windows as it gets incredibly hot on the tram. We also... More

Spent a good day here, summer is not the best time to visit for the real picturesque sights. Lots to do, doesn't take long to ramp up a big spend if not careful.

The aerial tram to get up to the fun gives you a great view. Make sure you're one of the first in line so you can get the best view inside the tram. Once you're at the top, talk about an adrenaline rush, had a blast doing the alpine coaster twice. You control your own speed but you don't have... More

We did not enjoy this place at all. Dated, way overpriced. Went up the chair lift to ride the alpine slide and they closed it due to a sprinkle of rain. Had to ride the lift back down and there are no refunds due to weather. Nothing else anyone even wanted to do here. Not up to par with amusement... More

It was okay fro someone who like rides. I was not impressed. I could have gotten a better burger at a fast food joint in town and I just don't think that you should have to pay to park up there. To each there own but not my thing.

There is a little bit of everything! It's a perfect place for the whole family. There is an amazing rollercoaster where you control your own speed while going through the mountains, awesome experience! Also, everyone was super nice and friendly :)

We enjoyed the 9 minute Tramway sky high ride to the mountain top! The views are breathtaking! When we got to the top, we saw three bears in the wildlife area. I felt sorry for them. They were in an area that appeared wide open like an empty cement pool, It was very hot. Felt like they should be free.... More

The kids (6 and 11) thought this was the best. The tram ride up was ok. Crowded but nice views. The tram conductor was nice. Once on the mtn the staff seemed weary of the tourists. We did animal encounter (a little sad re size of enclosures by nice to see animals up close), ice skating (we are from mn... More

Tram ride was cool. Sky coaster was awesome! Longest chairlift in the south. Alpine slide & lots of shops in the mall. Good day trip.
