Ober Gatlinburg is complying with Sevier County’s Mask Mandate for all indoor venues.

Masks are required for indoor attractions and facilities. This includes the Aerial Tramway. Once outside, guests may choose to take off their mask but must be ready to put it back on when going back indoors. Please note our Ice-Skating Rink and Ice Bumper Cars are indoor attractions.


We respectfully ask that you comply with Sevier Counties mandate. We cannot allow you to enter the property without a mask. This is not unique to Ober Gatlinburg. The mandate is countywide and includes every business.
