We only went to the wildlife encounter which was over priced. There were a few package deals that had some of the things we would have done but they were overpriced.

It's a very nice way to get a beautiful view of Gatlinburg and surrounding mountain range in a relaxing way. Operators were very friendly and helpful.

Nice people there but it’s VERY dated. It could use a more ski resort feel and major updating! Otherwise it’s fine, ice skating, snow skiing in the winter. Nice staff, clean and family friendly.

Unfortunately was raining, but still enjoyed our time. The ride up and down was amazing and the indoor ice skating rink was a nice little unexpected surprise.

Lots of things for the kids to do. Several shopping opportunities and some food choices on location. You can take the aerial tram up or drive. Would love to return when there is colder weather to experience the skiing opportunities.

Good ride to halfway up the mountain, good mountain views of the area if you can get a window spot. They will pack you in like sardines and it’s about a 20 min ride. After you get off the tram you stop half way up...More

Yes, it just basically turns into a ski resort. There's ice skating inside and a game room. There is skiing and snowboarding and possibly tubing outside.

You can take a purse with you on all the rides at Ober Gatlinburg except the mountain coaster. I am not positive about the water slide but lockers are available. Also, shoes with straps must be worn on the mountain... More
