The staff were all very friendly and the price was well worth it for the views in the Tram Car and the chair lift up to the very top with the Mountain Grass band. The weather was amazing when we visiting in early-mid October. The only reason I'm not giving a Very good rating is due to the attitude of... More

This is a wonderful ride to the top of the mountain. It's unfortunate that they stuff you into the gondola like sardines....but even if you're nervous about height, the ride up and down is calm and gentle. Once you get to the top there's a couple of places to eat, an indoor ice rink, all kinds of shops, an outdoor... More

Ober is a great way to see the beautiful view without the drive and wear and tear on you car. When you get to the top of Ober there is a building that houses shops, restaurants, an ice rink, and an arcade. There are also several rides/ activities outside that one can do for an additional cost. The ticket to... More

the amazing view and breathtaking ride to the mountaintop where we really enjoyed the ice skating rink and rehab zoo for native animals only added to the fun of all the shops and venders. We visited in October as the theme was "Octoberfest" which added to the enjoyment. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

The price for Ober Gatlinburg Amusement park was between $24-30pp. The tram over to the park was beautiful. Once there you will notice the place is extremely dated, like 80s appeal. The ice skating part is a separate price, in the park the roller coaster is a separate price and the day we went it took 2-3hrs for the large... More

If you are going to spend the day, it is best to get a Premium wristband, that includes a large number of attractions including the Gondola ride up, the animals, the ice skating, the ski lifts, and the Alpline slide. We came here with a large party before Thanksgiving so it was very crowded. We caught one of the first... More

Ober Gatlinburg is a fun activity if you are in the area. It has been a few years since I have been, but last few times I went, they had a bear exhibit there, but I am not reading any mention of that in current reviews, so it might be gone now. There were a few shops, a very simple... More

Beautiful views from above and below. There is a little vibration going across the cables but not too bad. You may see bears for sure. Makes you appreciate life even more.

The Ober Gatlinburg is one of those treasures that you have to experience at least once. It has changed dramatically since the last time we visited, but is still a nice way to spend a afternoon. There are catches along the way which will cost extra money, but the amount you wish to spend will depend on how much "YOU"... More
