When you get up to the top there is only a few tourist traps to partake in. The "zoo" was six bucks and that was about it. Everything else there really wasn't that good at all. If you are looking for good views go to the chairlift down the street!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont forget to take the lift from ober gatlinburg all the way up the mountain, it is 7 bucks a person and worth it. The best view of Smokies from upthere, nicer elaxing lift up aswell. Little store upthere so you can get hot chocolate and warm up :) Don't forget to get some fudge on the way down. Maple walnut was to die for.

This ride gets a little crowded so if you are not good in tight areas you may not want to take this ride to the top of the mountain. Also, if you have issues with motion sickness, not a good ride for you. I like it. I like how they tell you about the history of this tram in addition to the various unusual houses that you travel over in the tram.

We had a great time doing the tubing. Really recommend going early to purchase your tickets. We went at 9am to get tickets and some of the seasons were already sold out. It does take quite a bit to get it started but once we all started going the "wait time" for your turn got better.
