This was a very good experience. My kids enjoyed themselves. It was their first time ice skating. Only downside was the skates smelled awful.

We took our 16 & 19 year old son's to do the alpine coaster. Be ready to pay a $5 parking fee. That caught is by surprise as you are hooked since there is no where else to park on the mountain! We've done the...More

Love riding the tram up to Ober. I'm terrified of heights but it's surprisingly not scary, just gorgeous views all around. Great for kids and grandparents alike. At the top, we always visit the Leather Shop- awesome goods at great prices, and the shop owner...More

We took our granddaughters here for a mini vacation and they loved it. They offer activities for all age groups. The ski lift and ice skating were favorites.

Long wait but enjoyed it! The only thing I didn't like was feeling like I was a cow being herded into a small barn. Lots of people on it! Price was not bad. Two people was $26 for round trip. Up top was skating rink...More

I liked it but not sure I couldn't have lived without this on my trip. If I had kids, the summit would have been more interesting, but for a solo adult traveler kind of left me with the thought "so this is it?? I would...More

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

Actually, you can - if you don't mind it getting a bit wet. There are three water rides. Only one got us a bit wet. The other two - only a very little. My purse got a bit damp, but was fine.
Will there be any snow activities available here in Mid October ? If so, what are they ?

They usually don't start making snow until after Thanksgiving. Last October it was up in the 90's!!! You just never know around here what the weather will do.
