We were fans of City Forum since we started visiting in 2019 but hadn't been since Covid started. Went yesterday and was impressed with how its grown. The arcade had been okay previously but is now a spot to lose yourself for hours. Great array of games for all ages and saw kids from 3 to 75 enjoying their games. The food isn't gourmet (why would it be), but lightyears ahead of a certain mouse-oriented entertainment restaurant.
Mini golf is great, laser tag is decent, and the bowling is a blast, even if the candlestick style makes for tangles if any players have a good arm on them.
This is a great place, especially for getting out of the house on a rainy day.

The City forum fills a void that has existed in Clarksville for sometime. We had a great time there on a Sunday afternoon. The crowd was mostly families and well behaved teens. I would recommend this especially for rainy days.

Lots of fun! Different options to fit different ages. They serve beer which I found to be cool. The bowling alley is great and designed very well too. We had a great deal of fun. If you’re on a tight budget be sure to check out pricing prior to visiting. I truly have no complaints. It was clean, fun, we got great service.

A bit pricey for what you get but fun. Staff wiped down everything after each use due to Covid.
We bowled....had lots of issues with our lane. Pins are on strings to reset so that was always hanging up. Staff did accommodate with more time. You bowl by time, not by game. We did one hour.
Mini golf had a nice course. Enjoyed this.
Also had go karts and arcade here which we did not do.
I probably would not return to this....but my daughter and her boyfriend both said that they would be back.

The customer service here is horrible. Got into a major accident on the Go Karts and the staff was very unhelpful. This place is dangerous and ran by teens who don't have the proper training to handle issues as they arise. Keep your kids/family away from this place unless you want a trip to the hospital.

We came here to kill some time since there’s not much to do in Clarksville. We only bowled for and hour and the cost for four of us was $47.00 plus tax That’s so expensive and we didn’t even have time to get in two full games - and we played quickly. Sad that they don’t give a military discount. It did look cute for younger kids and teens. The go kart track was small but I’m sure for young ones it would have been fun.
Wanted to play laser tag but only with us four - that didn’t happen. Over all it was fun and seems like something nice in an area with not much. Just plan to spend a lot of money $$$

Went here for the bowling...very nice facility. Things you’ll find include go karts, putt-putt golf, laser tag and an arcade...but to the bowling...lanes (10) are nice and the seating (couches) is quite comfy. Has a little bar right behind it for refreshments (didn’t use the bar). Bowling is charged per lane per hour which is not a good deal. 3 fairly quick moving people barely got 2 full games and a few extra frames done in an hour on one lane and at $35 per lane per hour on the weekend, that’s a tough sell. Should be charged by the game, like every other bowling alley around. One thing that drove me crazy was the pins are some new age wired system and while funny to watch them dangle and bounce around like puppets, they often got tangled which took time to fix, time that we didn’t get to play and never got back, since it was charged by the hour and the counter never stopped, even when the lines were tangled. I’ll come back to try the other stuff but until they charge per game like they should, I’ll just stick with the pinnacle for bowling.

The City Forum is so much fun and a great addition to Clarksville. The bowling alley is very cool and laid back. My son loves the arcade and laser tag. It’s a fun place for kids and adults.

My friends and I only found this place by suggestion on TripAdvisor. We aren’t too familiar with Clarksville, and had never heard of this place before. Lots to offer in a family friendly environment. Looks like a perfect place for birthday parties and small gatherings. 10/10 would recommend.
