“Fun but nothing amazing”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The tram ride up and down the mountain was great but very crowded. The animals in the "zoo" area were fun and the arcade had good games. The ski lift up to the top of the mountain offered great views but there is nothing when you get to the top - just a small area with a bench.

Fun way to spend a few hours but there are more exciting attractions in the area.

“Great views”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

You get amazing views of the mountains and of downtown Gatlinburg. It's also cheaper than the chairlift that's in town.

“Unique Feature for Town in Tennessee”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

It is rare to find such an alpine attraction in a town in the Midwest area. The tram is a fun way to access the attractions at the Ski mountain and provides a great view of the area. While we enjoy it more in the winter when skiing, the tram is a fun option on any day with a clear sky. Take the tram and enjoy the fun to be had on Ski Mountain at Ober Gatlinburg!

“Ober Gatlinburg Worth The Time”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Great view of the scenery from way up there! Fun hosts and their talk on the way gave us a chuckle or two.
