We checked out the the hotel after breakfast and headed to the Ober Gatlinburg cable car to ride up the mountain. We got to the top around 11:00 a.m. We check out a gift shop and the ice skating rink, and then headed outside. We rode the chair lift in the amusement park section half-way up the hill and got off to do the alpine slide. In this ride, you sit on a platform with wheels that follows a concrete and fiberglass gutter down 1,800 feet of hillside. There is a handbrake to control speed. It was fun, but we had to push hard forward on the brake lever to get up any speed.

After that ride, we rode the tram back to downtown Gatlinburg and headed toward home. We stopped in Pigeon Forge to ride Go-Karts and eat lunch at a Taco Bell. Teagan started driving at the Knoxville and finished the drive home. We arrived around 5:00 p.m. CDT.
