If it’s one thing this town knows how to do, it’s put on a spectacular Christmas show. Head up to Ober Gatlinburg this year for one of the best. Christmas On Ice is one of Gatlinburg’s most colorful and spectacular shows of the holiday season and has scheduled performances for Saturday and Sunday, December 1 – 2, and it’s FREE!
Gatlinburg’s annual Christmas on Ice show at Ober Gatlinburg’s ice skating arena features local amateur ice skaters performing skating routines to traditional Christmas music, choreographed by Ober rink instructor Devon Harman. This year, the Saturday night show time is at 7 pm. For those of you who come to the Sunday performance, that show starts at 5 pm.
Ober Gatlinburg’s indoor ice skating arena is the centerpiece of Ober’s 62,000 square foot upper tram terminal and mall. The ice skating arena, crafts market, scenic chairlift, alpine slide, and aerial tramway are all open year round. Ober Gatlinburg’s Amusement park is filled with fun events, rides, and happenings that the whole family can enjoy! We’re not only talking about the indoor ice arena and scenic chairlift, but also attractions like the alpine slide. You’ll also find an arcade, bumper cars, a pirate ship, bungee jumping, a Velcro jump wall, a shooting range, and mini golfing at the facility. You could spend a week there this fall and never have to do the same thing twice.
In addition, the Municipal Black Bear Habitat with live black bears is open spring through fall months. Snow skiing and snowboarding begins in December, weather permitting, and goes through mid-March.
