Arcades in the Smoky Mountains

Many kids love to visit arcades, whether for the entertainment or the time shared with friends! From the latest dance game craze and 3D games to classics like Skee Ball and Pac-Man, there is something for everyone to enjoy in today’s arcades! Places that have arcades are fun for the whole family. What a great place for Dad to take the kids while Mom experiences a little rest and relaxation. The arcade can also be a great place to spend some time while you are waiting for dinner reservations or a friend who is shopping. Whether the kids want some time to themselves or the adults are just kids at heart, the arcades are perfect for a day of fun!

Here are several of the arcades that can be found in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge:

Fannie Farkle’s has an arcade with a classic assortment of games that all will enjoy! Their most famous treat is a foot-long corn dog called an Ogle Dog. They also offer Hawaiian shaved ice and sausage subs. In the arcade, you will find Skee Ball, a Wheel Deal, and the latest trends in video games. Fannie Farkle’s is very committed to remaining family friendly, so you will not have to worry about finding lots of violent video games in the arcade. Another great thing about Fannie Farkle’s is that at the end of your gaming, you can save your points and return to spend them later. Their points never expire, so if you can’t find (or don’t have enough points for) the prize you want the first day, simply save your points and come back another day!
