“Beautiful Ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Very good trip up and back and the Ice Skating at top is nice too. They have some great souvenirs you can get at the top too which is where we got a Coffee Cup. One of the things we normally get on our trips.

“Good value for the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Very nice view all the way up and down, good value for what they deliver. I wouldn't pay to see the bears, because they have them in an enclosed concrete area - just not a kind thing to do to me, but you see a glimpse of them as you arrive/depart at the top. THere's lots to do when you get to the top, but off season it's a bit of a ghost town......you can save $$ if there are several of you by driving to the top -- same view from the top!

“absolutely amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Gatlinburg and the Smokies are a wonderful place to visit . Be sure to take the Tram and then the lift to the highest point , the view is breathtaking. If you go in the winter be sure to bring gloves and a toque for when you reach the top as the temperature drops quite a bit as you near the top. We enjoyed it very much

“Attraction that should not be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

I've ridden the tram since I was a little kid and never tire of it. Especially on a clear day or even at night, the ride is worth the time. Plus it takes you to the ski resort just in case you brought your skis.
