We come to Pigeon Forge all the time. I’ve never met anyone as rude as the lady at the counter. She told my teen daughter to hurry and pick something if she wanted to make one. We were there for only a couple of minutes...More

prices vary depending on what you pick--the smaller easier items are less expensive. I believe our family of 4 (kids 13 and 10) did it for around 50-60 total for 4 pieces. Very fun. Well worth it. Something different.
