The arcade is fun, bright, and has a lot of energy. Arcadia provides a very large selection of games. It has skee ball, crane games, touch screen games, spin games and two player video games. Just look for the space needle and you have arrived at Arcadia.

We were in town again for seven days. Every evening we would go to arcades for family fun. 6/7 nights we went to Arcadia. It's bigger and better than all the rest, trust me save your gas and money. First off they have renovated: new always clean marble/stone bathrooms, new prize counter, and new games. At least 25 new games... More

This was a great arcade in downtown Gatlinburg, which was deceivingly big! They had a good mix of ticket games, and actual arcade games! We were able to keep our family of 7 busy for a good 2+ hours on $100!!

Having a blast! Easy games that pay out big wins. Not to many "big kids" toys tho😂 But otherwise we've had a great time especially because it was the only place open late on a Tuesday snowy nigh.

There were some decent games, but the prize prices seemed higher than average for other arcades we have visited.

While the games are newer ones, which I like. The prizes that are available are extremely high ticketed and to get it you would spend double nearly triple if you went and bought it yourself at the store. Not a lot of prizes to choose from either this time, especially for adults.

After hiking all day and a good meal I'm restless for some fun. Why waste your money on local sleezy attractions or booze? The best place for me and my family has always been the space needle arcade for thirty years. I was looking forward to return visit. We went back several days in a row. We always stay a... More
