The course is well maintained and of average playability and imagination. The staff is friendly. One thing to be warned about is that the course is on the side of a hill so if you have mobility problems, be warned. They have two course out side and one course insude - a blacklight course that I didn't play. There are... More

Had an absolute blast with my friends. Staff was more the knowledgeable and accommodating. I've tried a few escape rooms around the East Tennessee and Gatlins is the best I've seen by far. It's not just trying to get out of a 10x10 room. There are multiple room, challenging but "doable" puzzles, and teamwork is absolutely required. I'd say 5... More

WOW! This escape game is by far one of the best we have ever attempted! More tech than lock and key or combination lock! Attention to detail is amazing. Décor is top notch. The cost reflects that, but you get what you pay for. Although we did not escape - a few more minutes and we would have - it... More

We had been looking for a place to mini golf. We got finished in the park kind of early and neither of us really wanted to sit in the hotel looking at the walls so we went for a walk and stumbled across this. You had two 18 hole courses Old Mountain Trail Course or the Old Town Square course... More

This is a great fun place. You can play two 18 hole courses; Old Town Square or Old Mountain Trail and a 9 hole indoor course. Outside you climb up and down the hill side with stands providing an old photograph and history of the area as you proceed along. Inside is most odd as you play under ultra violet... More

As others have said this is not a good deal if you are planning on coming here once. With the passes they sell, it becomes much more worthwhile if you plan on coming back several times but $12 for a round of mini-golf is just too much. As for the mini-golf course, I wasn't really impressed. The holes were not... More

This course is in the heart of Gatlinburg and built on a large, steep hillside. Looks are deceiving and you really don't notice the climb while on the course. There's a few larger stair cases but most are small and the elevation change is not an issue. The course is laid out well and has some good mini golf challenges... More

We weren't short of things to do in Gatlinburg but we do always enjoy a good round of crazy golf so we chose to come here. The price for one game was quite steep but it becomes better value as soon as you do more than one activity. The course itself looks like it has seen better days but it... More
