While the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is certainly the main attraction in Gatlinburg, TN, there are also several other things that draw millions of people to this bustling city each year. Many people come for the live shows, great food, and amazing shopping, but everyone comes for the fun.
At Fannie Farkles, located in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg, fun (along with footlong corn dogs) is always on the menu. In fact, their motto is, “Come for the food, stay for the fun!” Since 1981, adults and kids of all ages have been playing and chowing down at this Gatlinburg staple. So, what can you expect to find? Classic carnival food, great games, and fun for everyone – 365 days a year.
Named for local pioneer Tom Ogle, Fannie Farkles’ Ogle Dogs are a footlong feast on a stick. You can even watch them whip up your made-to-order corn dog (made with their own secret recipe) while you take a break from all the games. Their Famous Sausage Subs are served fresh with smoked sausage and sauteed onions and peppers, while 12 Hawaiian ice flavors offer something sweet. And don’t worry, an ice cold Coca Cola, lemonade, or fresh brewed iced tea will help you wash down all those sweet and savory treats.
While the food will keep you full, there are also plenty of games to keep you entertained. Pac Man, Skee Ball, Slam Dunk, Tic Tac Toe, Speed Demon, Wheel of Fortune, Red Hots, and Hoop La are just a few of the dozens of games in this awesome arcade. The kids can collect their tickets for great prizes, and if one day of games just isn’t enough, they can save up their points for their next visit. Points at Fannie Farkles never expire! There are also many video games such as Fast and Furious Bikes, NASCAR Racing, Mario Cart, Aliens, Galaga and Carnival King.
Fannie Farkles is just the place to take the whole family for a day of gaming fun. Visit www.fanniefarkles.net for coupons, a virtual tour, and more information.
