  • Ober is a nasty brown color from the 60's that hasn't changed in I know 20 years. Just a old outdated place that isn't taken care of to well. Not too much to do. They have a few bears and animals but they all look old and horrible and their pens and areas are old nasty and not taken care of. Ice skating is cool and s few rides outside that's ok but it's just a dull outdated place but why change it because Gatlinburg in packed 24-7 365 so millions come and spend money and keep coming back. Don't really know of a updated hotel in Gatlinburg either. It's a good visit for a day or so.
  • The team ride provides a beautiful view. Once up the mountain there is little to nothing to do for entertainment without spending a fortune. 3.50 for a single ticket when most things take at least two. It makes me reminisce over the quote in fear and loathing in Las Vegas where hunter s Thompson goes to the bozo circus. This is what every American would be doing on their Saturday night if the Nazis won the war.
  • My wife and I came here on Sunday of a holiday weekend. We were initially concerned about the negative reviews we had read. The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived, but was much more crowded half way through our meal. We got the spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer. We liked the chips it was served with. My pot roast was yummy. My wife had the stuffed chicken with portables mushrooms and provolone with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. Everything we ate was tasty. We finished the meal with lava cake. Yum! The service was great. The wait staff was always busy attending to their customers. This restaurant met our expectations and we will return.
  • Awesome tram ride to the top of the mountain where there is plenty to do. Loved the bear exhibit. Many attractions such as ice skating, chair lifts, water slide and much more. The views are by far the best.
  • A neat experience for the whole family, there's a lot to do and kids will want to do most all of them. The new Sky coaster was a blast, there's the alpine slide, a rotating swing, ice skating rink,and the animal exhibit, all are great fun. However,, each ride requires a ticket, which are a bit pricey for a family, so on top of the 15 dollar tram ride 8 dollars for 3 bottles of water, and the coaster was 12 each, we didn't stay long. My advice to them is figure up 1 price for adults and 1 for children that includes all rides. Cause when you can spend 100 dollars in 30 minutes, the kids still need to be entertained!!
