Ober Gatlinburg is one of Gatlinburg’s top notch attractions!
High above the city of Gatlinburg sits one of their top attractions and thrill parks, Ober Gatlinburg! Ober Gatlinburg is a ski resort, animal sanctuary, thrill park, and family fun park combined into one place! We had the opportunity to check out this amazing attraction area when I was on a media trip to Tennessee and wanted to share my experience with the park!
I went to Ober Gatlinburg for one reason and one reason only: Mountain Coaster! For those who do not know what a mountain coaster is, it is a roller coaster that is powered by gravity alone and features a track that winds down the mountain.
Your journey on the Ski Mountain Coaster begins with a tranquil uphill ride through the trees before being whisked down nearly 4,000’ of adrenaline pumping turns, dips, zigs, zags and G-force action adventure. The Ski Mountain Coaster is great for riders of any age, children, parents and grandparents can enjoy the ride and choose their own pace down the mountain. Enjoy the high-speed adventure hugging every turn and dip as you zoom down the mountain at speeds up to 25 mph or choose a more relaxed pace suitable to your enjoyment level.
Designed for comfort, the Ski Mountain Coaster carts provide a more secure and comfortable ride with room for 1-2 riders, higher back rests and shorter brake levers for easier handling and control. Whatever your speed, you can be assured that you are experiencing the industry’s top-rated coaster for safety.
The ride was smooth and the views of the mountain side were amazing. I really didn’t know how I would feel about the Mountain Coaster idea but after riding the Ski Mountain Coaster at Ober Gatlinburg I knew that I was hooked for life!
Along with the Ski Mountain Coaster, Ober Gatlinburg features a ski lift ride to the top of the mountain giving you amazing views, a sled ride down the mountain on a cart luge style, rides, a ice skating rink, animal park and a ton more!
Overall, Ober Gatlinburg is a ton of fun no matter what the weather! I will always remember my first experience with a mountain coaster and will have Ober Gatlinburg to thank!
