We went to Gatlinburg over Spring Break, and we always go ice skating at Ober Gatlinburg when we are there. Family fun we all enjoy! The car ride up the mountain is not for the faint of heart, but I couldn't stomach the aerial tram. Some cheesy shops there too, but not much else unless its solidly winter (skiing) or summer (outdoor amusements).

Great snack bar upstairs where you can watch the skaters!

This is only for those who are going to the top for a reason like skiing. It is simply transportation. You will stand for the ride in a crowded car with lots of people every time regardless of the time of year. We went in February and we thought it would be a site seeing adventure. Not really, we went up walked around and gladly came back down. It is not a must do, we wish we would have skipped it.

This is a great way to get to the top of the mountain! The views were spectacular & our "driver" on the way up was fantastic. There are things to do at the top, plan on spending at least another $20 each if you want to to anything other than just sit there.

As they say, it's the journey, not the destination. The tramway provides great views, lots of photo opportunities. It's a relaxing journey after walking all day. The desitination (at the top), well, not so much - not a lot to see or do. But the ride up and back is worth it.

After riding this tramway, I was disappointed at the trip. It seems like a total waste of time if you ask me. There was nothing to do when you arrived to the top of mountain. It seemed like everything was closed except for the ice skating rink. Don't let me get started on the live animal exhibit. To charge for that exhibit is atrocious.
