Ober Gatlinburg is home to the Wildlife Encounter which is your chance to see the rolling mountains with spectacular views
Ober Gatlinburg is arguably one of the most popular attractions in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

However, there are a few things that you should know before making the trip. Here are three things I wish I knew before going to Ober Gatlinburg.

1. You Can't Bring Outside Food or Beverages

Firstly, outside food and beverages, including alcoholic drinks, are not allowed on the Aerial Tramway or Ober Gatlinburg premises. Above all, this may or may not seem like a big deal or a surprise to you – but, for me, it was! At Walt Disney World, you can bring your food and drinks inside the park, so I was surprised when I couldn’t bring in a sandwich and beverage that I packed for lunch. However, there are food options in Ober Gatlinburg, but that means you have to pay more to eat on property. 

Food On Property - Choose From Over 4 Different Eateries

2. Don't Fall For Retail Prices On Tickets

First of all, why would you want to pay retail if you knew there were great deals out there? I learned this the hard way. In other words, when I went for the first time, I made the mistake of not researching Ober Gatlinburg tickets. The outcome was spending around $70+ doing all the activities I wanted to do. Learn from this expensive mistake – this is something I wish I knew before going out for a fun day in the mountains. Save up to 74% off your tickets and hotel here!

Activities include snow tubing and many more fun activities

3. There are so many activities - Plan Out Your Day First

Over the year, there are over 16 different activities you can partake in at Ober Gatlinburg. In other words, there is so much to do that you can almost guarantee that you will be paralyzed with options. My recommendation after going to Ober is to plan out your itinerary for the day. Not only will this help you schedule the time to do everything you want to do, but it will also help you plan out your budget. Additionally, I recommend looking at all the activities before going and ranking your “musts” and some activities you can do without. Above all, when I went, I didn’t get to do everything I wanted to do because I couldn’t decide on all the options.
