Ober Gatlinburg is an amusement park and ski area, located in the mountains overlooking Gatlinburg, Tennessee, USA. Established in 1962, the area contains a large mall with indoor amusements, a skating rink, snack bars, a full-service lounge, restaurant, and gift and clothing stores. Outside there is an alpine slide, a scenic chairlift to the top of Mount Harrison, bumper cars and kiddie rides. What was formerly known as the Black Bear Habitat where visitors could see bears close-up recently expanded to become the Smoky Mountain Wildlife Adventure, where in addition to the bears there are animals native to the Great Smoky Mountains such as river otters, opossums, raccoons, turtles, snakes, brown squirrels and flying squirrels. An aerial tram connects Ober Gatlinburg to downtown Gatlinburg.
