Top 4 Reasons to Go Summer Tubing at Ober Gatlinburg

Ober Gatlinburg recently added tubing to their lineup of attractions you can enjoy during the summer months! This activity is very similar to snow tubing without all of the snow and the cold weather! All of the 4 tubing lanes are made of a synthetic material that is slippery, allowing you to experience the sensation of being on layers of compact show! Here are the top 4 reasons to go summer tubing at Ober Gatlinburg:

1. Family Friendly

Your kids will have a blast riding down the mountain in their own tube, and they will want to ride again and again! Riders must be at least 4 years old to participate, and children ages 4 to 6 must ride in a tube with an adult. There is no hill climbing involved because the Magic Carpet will take you and your tube back up the mountain after each of your trips down the tubing hill!

2. Unique Activity

While summer tubing has been a popular activity for years in Europe and other parts of the world, it is brand new to the Smoky Mountains! This means you can be one of the first guests to experience this unique activity at Ober Gatlinburg! Be sure to have your family members take plenty of pictures of you in action on the snow tubing hill to show your friends back home!

3. Affordable Ticket Prices
