“Snow Tubing”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We took the tram up to the top and went snow tubing and ice skating. The kids and I had a lot of fun and I was glad we did it.

“A blast”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had so much fun. We loved the alpine slide. Well worth the trip up. We also had a lot of fun ice skating. It was worth the money. Also the crowds were no where near as bad as downtown Gatlinburg.

“Fun ride”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

It takes you up to an area that has a few things to do. There is an ice-skating rink, an arcade, a carousel, a "bob-sled" like ride, and when we were there, snow was still on the ground and there was a tubing attraction that looked pretty fun. The ride up and down in the aerial tram offers some great views, great photo ops, and a look at some cabins precariously built on just about any angle, including one built on a boulder. Great time. Oh, and if you purchase a ticket, you can ride up and down as many times as you like over a two day period, so don't let the price fool you....it's not just for one ride up and down. We went up and down a couple of times over a two day period.

“I need more stars!!! This place ROCKS!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Get the armband. They have a summer and winter armband where you get unlimited rides on the attractions. For the summer armband, me and my kids got to go to the Wildlife attracton, ride the scenic ski lift, ride the merry go round, ride the swings, ride the alpine slide UNLIMITED TIMES. And, one session of Ice Skating. We had the best time and the view on top of the mountain is gorgeous! The alpine slide is the best part of the trip. The mall area has places to eat and a nice size arcade. IF YOU DRIVE TO THE PARKING AREA... Take a RIGHT on the parkway and you will come across the BY-PASS and this will take you out of Gatlinburg and you will by-pass the HORRIBLE TRAFFIC JAMS IN THE PM!!!! It does not show this clearly on the map of Gatlinburg. The road takes you into Pigeon Forge's city limits on the Parkway. The amusement area also has tubing for a $20 armband, extra. My kids wanted to do this, but they did not miss it when they got on the alpine slide. Tubing is from December to mid-April, I think. You ride an inner tube down multiple humps on snow. They have machines that can supplement snowfall! :-)

“Its kinda expensive, but great scenery”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I rode the Tram as a teenager. Its a great view, but it is about $11 for an adult to ride. If its good weather, take your car up the mountain and park for $5 and you still get to see the view from atop the mountain. If icy weather, you are forced to take the tram to the top of the mountain, because the gradients are VERY STEEP, but fun to drive up and down. :-)
