Great place for a large family. For $20 each we were able to enjoy several different activities, including indoor and outdoor minigolf, laser tag, gem mining (each of us got a good sized bag of gems to keep) a laser maze, motion theater, and 3-D movies, plus bumper cars and an arcade. The staff was very friendly and the location was easy tof ind and convienant to parking.

Our church youth group recently had a day at the Fort Fun and our son had a great time. Reasonable rates (at least for the group outing) and loads of fun.

The putt-putt course was awesome! It was well kept and the course was challenging. The staff was not friendly and the price was steep. at least at other courses, you buy one and get the second round for a discounted rate.

This reviewer has been contacted privately and we hope to hear back from them soon so that we can gather additional information regarding their visit.

At Fort Fun we strive to offer each of our customers with a great value. Our sales staff are trained to recognize the needs of our customers and offer different package options which include multi-activity discounts to ensure that every customer gets the most out of their visit. In this case, it appears that our sales staff did not live up to that expectation. We have already revisited this with each member of our team and feel that this was an isolated occurrence. In addition, we are confident that this will not be a concern going forward.

It was an ok Mini-golf range. If you have a small child with a stroller you may want to skip it. Not stroller friendly at all... the games on the inside were old and were not operating correctly

Thank you for visiting Fort Fun while you and your family were in Gatlinburg. While I am pleased that you chose to spend time with us, I am disappointed that you were not completely satisfied with your visit. We take all feedback very seriously and use it to help move our business forward.

I would like to address your concerns with our arcade games. Our staff members are trained to handle arcade game malfunctions with a standard procedure. Once a staff member is notified that a game is not operating correctly, they are to immediately attempt to remedy the malfunction themselves. If the issue is beyond the skill of our staff member to repair, they will place an “Out of Order” sign on the game. After this is done, the staff member will write up a “maintenance request form”, which is then given to the engineer here on staff. Occasionally, these issues do require new parts to repair them. If this is the case, the game will unfortunately sit out of order until the new part arrives and our engineer can install. I can assure you that it is our mission to have all aspects of our facilities in proper working order, and we strive to reach that goal to ensure our guest’s satisfaction.

Again, thank you for your business as well as your valuable feedback. If you are ever back in Gatlinburg, it would be our pleasure to have you back at Fort Fun.

The miniature golf offers three courses, two outside overlooking Gatlinburg and one indoors with blacklights and air conditioning. You can buy a pass for up to ten days for unlimited golf games. You play any time of the day or night.
