  • I stop here ever time I visit. My daughters love playing all the games.
  • Another must do if in Gatlinburg.. you can see the whole strip and beautiful mountain tops from up here
  • I was so scared of heights that even being off the ground like a roof scared me.. but the staff was wonderful and friendly and the elevator ride was so smooth he talked me through it and when I got up there I just was amazed!!!
  • Great arcade, and the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. We had a blast!
  • Well, the needle was closed due to the fire, but the arcade was fun for the kids. The pizza served at the front is good too.
