Marketed as “food with a view,” the new owners at Ober Mountain have already made huge renovations to Seasons of Ober Restaurant and The Ober Lounge. Once a traditional restaurant, Seasons now has more of a casual feel with the goal of providing a great place for hanging out with friends. The walls now have a fresh coat of paint highlighting the colors of the new logo design, yellow and dark blue. All the furniture is different as well. Season of Ober now has a mid-century modern theme featuring comfortable couches, stylish tables and chairs, and unique lighting fixtures. You’ll also enjoy a simplified menu and fantastic drink options as well! This new hangout spot is perfect for watching the sunset while you enjoy a drink or some food with your family or friends! 

New Entertainment Options

The new owners of Ober Mountain have also made it a goal to bring more entertainment options to the theme park. One way to improve entertainment is by using the large stage at the Seasons of Ober Restaurant more frequently. The owners expect to feature national acts as well as local and regional performers live on the stage. Because the lounge is now more of a casual environment, the owners added a shuffleboard table to promote the new fun and social setting. They want guests to have fun playing games, socializing, and listening to music while enjoying delicious food and drinks! These new additions to Ober Mountain are already making this amusement park the perfect place to have some fun with your family and friends!
