Me and my girl took the Aerial Tram and we really enjoy the ride. Most likely will ride the area tram again on next visit. The amusement park up top was ok.

Unfortunately, we were only able to have a ride up the mountain and eat at the restaurant. However, the ride was awesome and educational. The ride operators were great as well. The restaurant at the top was very good. Food was wonderful and the service...More

Expensive but fun. The alpine slide is a blast! All of our kids loved it. We didn't do the coaster. 15.00 per person per ride seems ridiculous.

Tbe wait tyo get on the tram is long but the views are pretty awesome. There isn't a lot to see at the top - iceskating and a wildlife area plus some shopping. But I gave it 4 stars just for the view.

It's been maybe 8 years since being in Gatlinburg. I remember visiting Ober Gatlingburg when I was younger and I had a blast there doing the alpine slide and riding the aquarium aerial tramway. After returning, they changed the tram cars and added a mountain...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Glad to see recent reviews of Ober Gatlinburg. We will be heading to the area in June. I was wondering if you could tell me if it was affected at all by the fires? If, for example, the alpine coaster is thru burned out trees, or preserved? Are the animals ok, and still there? Is the tram scenic still or mostly fire destruction? I will have a 3 and 5 y.o. with me so trying to get a better idea of what to expect. And also if it is age appropriate for them. I dont think im comfortable yet with them going on chair lift. Thank you!
