Very clean arcade! Staff was friendly, too! My 9 year old son enjoyed playing and got some cool prizes, too! Next time we're in town, we'll definitely be back!

“Big Top Arcade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

My family and I are currently in Pigeon Forge on vacation, and there are a lot of money sucking arcades here that my kids want to go to. Big Top was the best by far. Looks newly remodeled, new arcade games and claw machines. No tickets to mess with (tickets are kept track of by the card you put your money on). Both my 7 and 9 year old got nice TY brand stuffed animals from the claw machines. Gary, the employee who assisted us, was very helpful and nice. We went back today, Thanksgiving, and they were packed wall to wall but all the employees were very pleasant.

“Clean, awesome & fun!”

I don't think I've ever seen a cleaner arcade. Our group just stopped in between go kart rides and ended up staying for an hour. Fun place that I'll be visiting again.

“Eye Candy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

We just went there Sunday and the Arcade was wonderful! The staff went out of their way to make sure we understood the card system. The family had a great time and we will be back next year. It was clean and bought back the feel of the 70's when arcades were popping !!
