Come soar 2.1 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee and a 1472 foot rise in elevation, starting at 1341 feet and reaching a high point of 2813 feet above sea level … already a full 1000 feet higher than any other cable lift in Gatlinburg (or the entire state of TN), except for Ober’s own Scenic Chairlift which continues your ascent to the peak of Mt Harrison above our mountaintop park. Our two 120-passenger counter-balanced cars provides an amazing aerial experience for all ages, from the young to the young at heart. Our Aerial Tramway departs from downtown Gatlinburg and will whisk you up directly to our Adventure Park and Ski Area. The highest point off the ground, during the Tram ride, is about 300 feet!
History: In the winter of 1972 an idea to provide a safer, more comfortable way to reach the ski area was needed and the Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway was born. The tramway was completed August of 1973 and will soon be celebrating it’s 50th anniversary, having carried MILLIONS OF PEOPLE to Ober Mountain!
Departing regularly from downtown Gatlinburg, this cable car will take you on a breathtaking 2.1-mile ride up to our Adventure Park & Ski Area.
The Aerial Tram station is located at Parkway and LeConte Street in downtown Gatlinburg (1001 Parkway).
We can carry over 3,000 guests to Gatlinburg’s Top Attraction daily.
Experience the best view of the Smoky Mountains!
15 Minutes between each Tram Car Departure.
Due to the high demand and a large number of guests during Holiday Periods and Weekends you may encounter a wait time of 2 or more hours to board the Aerial Tramway. Please schedule your time accordingly to allow for delays.
