I've rode this tram for about 7 years in a row on our annual trip and they keep getting worse about cramming people in trams like sardines. It has beautiful views that older kids can't even see since they're crammed in the middle most of...More

Long time go to place for fun and food. Has been upgraded and is very clean and kid friendly. Neat rides and good fast food. Neat gift shops, one particularly aimed at US veterans.

We took the tram to go up to the Oktoberfest at Ober Gatlinburg. Tram ticket was a good value, $12 each (because our AAA Club saved $1) for unlimited use for two days (don't know if that's the normal deal or just for Oktoberfest). It...More

The views were great and probably worth the 13 or so dollars for admission. Once you get to the top, it's kind of disappointing. The facilities look like they haven't been updated since the 70's. The "see a bear" add on is kind of a...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
