It was included in the lodging package so we took the kids. Would not have paid the money otherwise. Not that big a deal.

Pretty tired place. Kind of dirty. They will charge you $20/kid if you don't book through Snowshoe Mountain Resort.

We went to the Big Top one evening due to the fact that this year, Snowshoe had not great snow for skiing. It wasn't a bad experience, but the game machines were terrible! The air hockey game sucked the puck deep into the bowels of the machine, the skee ball machines were crappy, and half of the rest of the... More

We have a 12 and a 9 year old. We took them along with some friends to the Big Top so the adults could go to dinner. The kids were instantly engaged, phones down and enjoying all the place had to offer. There is something for all the kids here but I would limit the age to under 14.

We spent spring break at Snowshoe and the weather was cold and rainy during much of our visit. The Big Top was a godsend as it gave us something that my daughter enjoyed doing while being warm and dry. Love the climbing wall and trampoline bounce! She and I also enjoyed playing pool, cornhole and foosball together.

We did not know this was an amenity with our room, but we had a blast at the Big Top! The kids bungee jumped, ran through an obstacle course, and all kinds of games, while their dad and I had a beer at the end of the game. It was a fun treat after the slopes closed at 4:30!

This place was included for our family because we reserved through Snowshoe reservations. Our kids (age 13 and 10) enjoyed running around the inflatables, playing with the Wii, rock climbing, and the euro bungee for about 90 minutes before they had their fill and wanted to leave. Video game machines were not of much interest to them-boys proclaimed them to... More

Each year this wonderful big space gets worse. I would estimate 80% or more of the items in this kids attraction doesn't work or is so dirty you would not want your kids on it.. Ok, so if you don't mind the dirt, it most likely doesn't work. And if your there for the "Movie" the Picture and inaudible sound... More

The climbing wall, the euro bungee is a blasts for the kids. We really enjoy the activities here and the movie nights are an awesome idea.

Bungee trampoline, pugil stick fights, huge bouncy slide, video games, and cheap beer. The Big Top worked out great for my 4yr old when he was done skiing. Free to families staying at the resort. Staff was great.
