We purchased the package with an escape room and four additional activities. We started out playing the Haunting of Hyde House Escape Room. It was hauntingly creepy! Our game master, Lilly, was amazing! She deserves a 10 star review alone! She played the part quite well and was always quick to answer our questions when we needed a nudge. We enjoyed ourselves so much we are considering booking another room to try it out.
Thus far, we have also played the indoor black light golf and laser tag. Both were tons of fun! We can’t wait to try out the other activities throughout the week.
If you’re looking for something fun to do in Gatlinburg, I highly recommend Gatlin’s! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We only did the indoor black light golf so we will only have input on that. The course is 9 holes and you play it twice to get 18. The lady instructed us to get two balls since when you play hole 9 you do not get your ball back. The course is very fun but not very challenging. It was a rainy day so it was busier inside that what I’m sure it normally is. It says you are being recorded when you enter but the video monitor was not turned on so not sure how real that is.

Thank you for visiting Gatlin's. We appreciate you stopping by and playing our Blacklight Mini Golf and hope that you will come back again to try some of our other activities. Keep in mind that for only $6 more than you paid to play golf, you can choose SIX activities such as Outdoor Mini Golf, Bumper Cars, Laser Tag, Laser Maze, Atomic Rush and more! As for the security cameras and video monitor - don't fear, although that particular monitor is no longer in use, as new security system is in place and very real! Thanks for the review and feedback! Sincerely, marc

As someone who has played over 100 rooms I need to preface this review by saying if you love escape rooms or interested in getting into the hobby I can not stress enough how much you need to visit this location. Gatlin's Escapes feature high quality rooms with creative themes and fun puzzles that have been on the upper tier of all the games I've played. All housed in a very fun building with friendly staff with a clear love for the hobby makes this a bucket list location.

Before I go in-depth with the games we played I find it noteworthy to mention that Gatlin's has a very unique hint system as they feature two ways to play. Casual mode, offers unlimited hints and lots of friendly nudges so players wanting to play an escape room but are unsure of their skill level should consider this option as you will most likely have the full experience. Traditional mode is your standard three hint system, however you can still ask for more with the only penalty being that your team will not be added to the success percentage. It's a VERY minor setback.

The list of games we played

Moonshine Hootenanny: Tired of diamond heists, zombies, serial killers and prison escapes? Then ohhhhh boy this room is for you. Out of all the escape games we played during our weekend in Tennessee this was our absolute favorite. Moonshine Hootenanny is just an utter treat to play, clever puzzles, fun tech, a truly different theme and set that you will not find anywhere else and some wonderful "wow" moments that feed in the theme and story. Meanwhile the whole experience was elevated by our GM "Cousin Brandon" who really added that extra kick of Hillbilly flavor

Master's of Magic: Usually when an escape room does a magic theme they tend to lean toward Merlin sorcery style or a Harry Potter knock-off, here at Gatlin's the wonderful world of stage magic takes front and center. Gatlin's Escape adversities this as their newest room and it shows as there a larger emphasis toward effects and spectacle (fitting for a magic room) and yes, you actually get to do magic tricks. It's certainly a more linear experience but its still has some great puzzles and I still recommend it.

We did the kraken’s eye room. It was a very good room, and we really enjoyed it. As experienced escape room enthusiasts we would say that this room is quite easy. Unfortunately we left with a bad taste in our mouths because the young lady who served as our game master gave us WAY too much unsolicited help!! Ironically, when we entered the room, she told us that she would only give hints if we asked. Well despite only asking for a one hint the whole time, she just about walked us through the entire room (even as we were yelling for her to stop giving hints!). We liked the room, but for the money we paid, we would’ve appreciated the opportunity to solve the puzzles on our own. We feel a little bit ripped off.

People who love this place must have money to burn. My kids wanted to ride the bumper cars but every activity on its own costs $15. So that would be about $7.50 a minute. I lied and told them there were no more tickets available for the bumper cars and instead our whole party went to mini golf, still the most expensive mini golf ever. But it was fun and some great historic info along the way.

My son saw the rope climbing course and wanted to do it. Turns out he wasn't as brave as he thought. It was still fun though, just didn't do it very long. My main complaint here is that there are a lot of activities in a very small space with no real direction as to where everything is. We did the bumper cars, black light mini golf, and laser tag. It was fun, but terribly disorganized. We had to ask where everything was multiple times. It was still fun, but they need to do a better job making it clear where everything is and the procedures to participate in each activity. There just isn't enough room.

Gatlin’s was terrific! Our family was able to play yesterday even though it was snowy and freezing cold. The black light mini golf was very well done and super fun (9 holes of an under the sea theme…great music in there), the bumper cars easy to control and great fun, and the laser tag exciting with excellent, responsive guns. We bought a four activity ticket which saved us a lot of money. Service was friendly and efficient. Recommend!

This was a hidden gem. It was affordable and entertained the kids for hours with obstacle course, bumper cars, blacklight golf, Lazer maze and Lazer tag. We had kids ranging from 3 years to 12 years. We visited two times in one day!!

Listen The Masters of Magic room is definitely a must try. This was my first ever experience doing an escape room and I couldn’t ask for a better one then I experienced. Our guide (can’t remember her name) did an AMAZING job of giving us just enough clues to where we could figure it out ourselves and did not spoil anything at all. At the end we became victorious and was able to escape with 17 minutes and some change left on the clock (best time of the day). I definitely can not wait to go back to Gatlinburg and experience the other rooms that they have available 10 out of 10 would recommend.

Me and my girlfriend had an amazing time. Mapes was an amazing salesman his voice was full of confidence and cheerfulness and before we knew it we had a ticket to four different things and enjoyed it thoroughly. But our trip was exponentially better because of Tori she is an amazing people person. An extremely knowledgeable. I'm not going to lie I had a million questions and was very needy and by the time I left she made us both feel like kings and queens. We will definitely be back many times over.
