Great View

I loved the view and employees but if I go again it will be in cooler weather. It was quite warm and you are pretty tightly packed. Take that into consideration if you ride.

Expensive, expensive and expensive. No infrastructure. Rude staff. Dirty facilities. No system for rain checks for waiting in line for hours , only to be told that your ride / attraction is cancelled due to weather, which is surprising since it's the mountains. No water fountains. Overall not worth the amount of money they charge for everything .

We spent most of a day at Ober. The chalet we rented was only a few blocks from Ober, so we drove there and did not ride the sky tram. Parking was $5. I was surprised at all they had to do there and we all had a blast. It was much larger than I thought it would be. The... More

Had a wonderful time. A friend recommended us doing this. We rode the tram up and the guide was very enthusiastic, he kept us entertained. His name was Bobby. We got to the top with beautiful views and rode then mountain coaster, that was so much fun if you are thrill seeker just let the ride go at full speed... More

This park is located at the top of the mountain, accessible by taking the Aerial Tram from downtown Gatlinburg (recommended) or driving the narrow steep road to the top. There are plenty of amusement rides. The ski lift is amazing. Saw a baby bear playing on our way up the mountain. In addition to the amusement rides, there is an... More

Ticket seller was rather short and rude and wasn't super helpful, however other employees were very accommodating. Purchased the day pass wrist band which was worth the money overall - had it been a bit cooler and our son a bit older. Most of the activities were outside (meaning that it was easy for our 6yo to get overheated and... More

If you have children with you or if you just want to remember what childhood joy is all about, come here and enjoy it all! The Alpine Slide is pure fun, and the new roller coaster(sort of) is great as well. You can even ice skate on a 90 degree day! This isn't inexpensive, but it is well worth an... More
