Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area

1001 Parkway, Suite 2

Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park had its  beginnings as the Gatlinburg Ski Area in 1961.  The Aerial Tramway, which was constructed in 1973, and the Ski Area became Ober Gatlinburg in 1975, eventually becoming the year round attraction it is today.

Family-owned and operated, Ober Gatlinburg continues to grow.  A state-of-the art Snow Tubing Park opened in January 2009 and a Freestyle Terrain Park was added for the 2009-2010 season.

A wonderful experience for all, including the cable car ride with entertaining guides who will point out interesting facts, such as the barbie doll house. On top of the mountain there's skiing during the winter, a great bar and restaurant that is kind friendly, as well as banquet space. The indoor skating rink and shops are a little cheesy, but it adds to the experience. The ski shop is well managed and several unique shops sell jewelry to Native American trinkets and gifts. I would recommend this spot for the entire family, and we are looking forward to a summer trip to see what it's like during warmer weather

This was very fun to do. It was not very expensive but it was definitely a worthwhile experience. The staff were all very friendly and the tour speeches that they gave on the tram were informational yet delivered with personality and a sense of humor. At the top there is a ice skating rink which looked really fun but I didn't have time for and several shops to explore from puzzles to knick knacks to a leather store. The views were very beautiful from the top and I would definitely go here again.

Misleading to the point of dishonest. Advertised price on website for all access wristband is $25. At the park it is $35. Talked to attendant at the information desk at length to determine if everything was stroller friendly and accessible, as well as what we needed to buy so our 1 and 4 year old could enjoy..Led to believe we needed two all access wristbands. For this, the only thing accessible was a playground in the searing sun. Was told I could not hold the 1 year old on the cars,(Staff were rude and disrespectful) therefore she could not ride. Other rides such as alpine coaster and slide are accessible only via chairlift (not stroller accessible and you are already on top of a mountain); For $70 kids got to play in the playground and ride a carousel(which i think is free) 5x the size of a kmart carousel. I love Gatlinburg, and this place has been there a long time-- But I will not be taken advantage of. Ober Gatlinburg was contacted and given ample opportunity to refund without penalty of appropriate reviews--All while KNOWING that I would issue a stop payment through my bank if they failed to respond. This is the level of concern they have with customer service, satisfaction, and experience. I regret having to expose an independent venture, as I believe they are the last remaining jewels in the crown of Americana travel--Ober Gatlinburg leaves me no choice.

Enjoyed the tram ride and the guide was great pointing out things along the ride. When you get to the top there is a number of things to and reasonably price with wrist bands. Food was good too. Can’t wait to come back!

I think it was $7 to ride the tram to the top. If you're 5 ft 6 and you're not on an outside of the tram, you won't be able to see anything on the way up. They pack you in like sardines. On the way down though, you have less people and a better view. Spectacular. At the top there was an ice skating rink with about 8 people skating, a carousel with 2 or 3 kids on it, some small shops, and expensive food and drinks. Eat before or after you go to the top. Outside there was an Alpine Slide that was awesome. There was an outside play area but it was closed. Worth $7 to ride to the top for sure.
