Lots of fun activities to do at the top of the mountain! Sky lift, mountain coaster, water activities, mini golf, kids activities, ice skating, animal encounters! The aerial tram was down we we went this time due to a storm, but we rode it two years ago - incredible views!

We went one week before Memorial Day so everything but the tram was closed. It provided cool view but I don't think it was worth the money for just adults.

This is a nice way to go up and down from the amusement park. It is a little pricey when you also add in parking at the bottom of the ride. I really enjoyed the ride and seeing the scenery. The staff was also very nice and helpful. The ice rink at the top is one of the oddest things... More

When we went, there was around 20 or so people on, so there was room to move about. The view from the tram is awesome. We even saw a bear on the lawn of a home down below us and was able to get it on video. When you get to the top, there are shops and restaurants to enjoy... More

My wife and I took the tram to Ober Gatlinburg, mostly for the view going up the mountain side. When we arrived at the top there really wasn't anything that interested us. As you arrive you will have your picture taken and when you get to the top you can purchase those pictures. The pictures are a bit pricey and... More

We enjoyed the tram ride up and down the mountain; however, once we got to the top of the mountain everything was closed and appeared very outdated.

Our hours do vary throughout the year based on attendance projections from previous years. We have the hours that everything is open posted in both our downtown tramway mall and at the ticket booth once you arrive on the mountain. We are sorry that you found our facilities outdated once you arrived, we have been working very hard over the... More

The tram was a great way to view the forrest. It was very crowded and people were cramed up next to eachother, but still worth the trip. The Animal encounter was small but fun. We were there at feeding time ( around 2:00) so the animals were out and active. The otters were very cute! The view of the mountains... More

We are so glad that your family had so much fun here at Ober Gatlinburg! The Aerial Tramway is one of our most popular activities, and while the cars can hold up to 120 people we usually don't put more then 65-80 people on per trip. Part of our reasoning for this is that we do want to give everyone... More

We went as a youth group with all ages and everyone had fun. There is ice skating and a ski lift. The kids and even some of the adults loved the slide down the mountain. We also loved being able to go to the top of the mountain. We got some great pictures!
