“more great stuff!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is one place you MUST visit first thing in Gatlinburg, if you like to play! They have wonderful things such as putt putt, black light putt putt, laser game, bumper cars and assorted arcade games.
The reason for coming here first is because of their great deals that lasts up to 10 days of your vacation, and it is really great price.
Enjoy your self here!

“Perfect for kids - variety of activities”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Highly recommend for kids- they have mini golf, mine for gems, laser tag, bumper cars, video games and a simulation machine - my boyfriend, his 5 year old and my 10 year did it and it was a Crash test dummy simulation - they said it was rough to ride but they like it - loved riding the bumper cars as well as laser tag. Didn't make it to mini golf but it looked really neat- Recommend for kids!

“Just ok.”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

The simulated was pretty lame, bumper car area is very small, lazier light maze is lame, the minigolf is actually ok. It did kill a little time, and if you pay for 6it is a reasonable cost. Just kind of lame .

“many options here”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

there are three courses you can take 2 are out side on the side of the mountain and one is indoor (black light) under the sea themed but its only 9 holes where as the two out door are 13 but u can preview the black light one which was pretty cool. i went on the left out side one and wished i would have chosen the right with all the little cottages it looked pretty cool it was like 12 bucks a person and a lot of fun inside they have bumper cars where you buy ur tickets but no one was on them so we skipped it

“Good fun downtown”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I first went to Fort Fun many years ago (when my dad was still paying for activities). Now that I am a parent, I still chose Fort Fun activities every time I come to Gatlinburg. This time, we purchases the unlimited golf. 3 visits more than recouped the cost and allows you to try all the courses (2 outdoor - 1 tradition and 1 trick shot, and indoor blacklight). My 5 yr old had so much fun on all the courses. The outdoor course could use a little more maintenance (the mats to hold the balls have been removed and on some courses the ball would not stay put), but new stairways have been added over the years. There is a fraying rope on the trick course that is a safety hazard and should be addressed. The black light golf is under the sea themed and enjoyable when its hot out. I have played other courses in town, and find them all lacking compared with Fort Fun. The lazer tag is great, and all of use (6 adults) worked up quite a sweat. The arcade is small (I would go elsewhere on the strip), but the deals for activities are the best around.
