  • Fun place to bum in the rain as 2 adults. The kid behind the counter was a little preoccupied with hanging with his buddy, but service was OK. mix of older and newer games.  more »
  • This was a great distraction to keep the kids entertained when we toured Gatlinburg Parkway. Most games were $1/play but the kids quickly earned points playing variety of games and were able to choose...  more »
  • This was the place to go when I was young. Had to bring my 12 year old son. I must say that I was a bit disappointed. I think it's geared more towards smaller children. We ended up going up the street...  more »

  • My husband and I had the sausage dogs with peppers, onions and sauce. The sausages were huge and loaded with toppings. Excellent sandwich!!! Would definitely recommend 👍🏽Husband had the lemonade which he thought was very tasty.
  • I’ve been coming here all my life, every time we come to Tennessee. I love love love it, but something that disappoints me is that they have really modernized. The special thing about this place was how old fashioned it was. Now they have everything on cards that you swipe instead of putting $ bills into the machines.
  • Personally, it was just ok. It is a modern take on the old arcade. First of all the building is small, but in a cramped area where it is located I guess that can't be helped. Second, when you purchase to play, you don't get coins, you get a gift like card that you slide in each game, so forget about the fun of putting in the coins. And then after the game is over, gone are the days of the yellow tickets, all of those long rows of yellow tickets to show for your winnings...none! Your points get added to the card! So to me the whole experience was pretty boring, and yes expensive!
  • We enjoyed taking a break in here and playing games. We also got something to eat. All of the food was fair type food but it was really really good!! We will stop back by next time we are in Gatlinburg.
  • Amazing arcade! Food is good, games are great, and the staff are nice. Been going there since I was young and I haven't lost interest in going. Good for all ages.
