Description

from Gatlin's Smoky Mountain Fun
Gatlin's Smoky Mountain Fun (formerly Fort Fun) is your one-stop spot for family entertainment! Nestled right in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg, we offer something for all ages - whether it's taking on the family in our 3000 sq. ft. Laser Tag arena or enjoying a competitive round of Miniature Golf while learning about the history of the area! For your best value, try our "Do It All Activity Pass", which includes all of our activities at one low price.

Featured activities include:

2 award-winning 18-hole Outdoor Miniature Golf courses
- The Old Town Square course offers a variety of trick shot holes designed for all ages. While playing, learn about the settlement of Gatlinburg with storyboards at every hole and take in the atmosphere of downtown from a beautifully landscaped vantage point.

- The Mountain Trail course provides a more traditional putt-putt course for the avid golf enthusiasts. Prove you are a master of your short game with these challenging greens, and learn a little about the area before Gatlinburg was settled with storyboards at every hole.

Indoor 9-hole Blacklight Golf
- Embark on a glow-in-the-dark putt-putt adventure under the sea, complete with mermaids, a pirate ship, and various aquatic obstacles to challenge all skill sets. Add a wackier dimension to your miniature golf game with our Mischief Spinners located throughout course.

Laser Tag
- Get psyched up for the best laser tag games in Gatlinburg! We feature a 3000 sq. ft. maze-like arena complete with interactive phasers and equipment. We recommend this activity for children over the age of 5 and at least 42 inches tall.

Bumper Cars
- Dual lever steering controls allow you to go in any direction - or just sit and spin in circles! While there is a 44" height requirement, not having traditional gas and brake pedals allows most young kids to participate equally with the adults.

Laser Maze
- "Break the Vault" Lazer Maze Challenge is for the competitive visitor who wants to try their skill in a Mission Impossible setting. The object is to navigate the maze as quickly as possible without breaking a beam: jump, crawl, climb, and sliver your way through an obstacle course of brilliant green lasers to the top of the leaderboards!

Atomic Rush
- Compete against up to 3 other players in this intense, live-action Simon Says competition. Race around the room racking up points every time you hit your color, but watch out! - hit your competitor's color and you'll receive a penalty! Warning: Highly Addictive!

Gem Mining
- With 15 - 17 gemstones GUARANTEED in every bag, this is the best place to find treasure in Gatlinburg! Our bags are seeded with 30 different types of gemstones including rubies, fossils, native arrowheads, and other materials. *Only Available as a Single Activity or in the Do It All Pass*

"Gatlin's Smoky Mountain FUN"
March, 2018
We had a lot of fun doing all the different activities available there. The kids really liked the laser tag. And it was a good deal, because you got to do multiple things or multiple times of your favorite thing, for about the same price as one 10 min game of laser tag somewhere else. The staff was super nice and helpful. And you get to use you times throughout your whole vacation up to ten days. You don't have to do them all that day. We went back a second day and used ours up. The kids really liked that part, and I enjoyed that it was all one price. Thanks!

"Best deal for a variey!!!"
October, 2015
Ok so single prices I think are too much personally. BUT we did the pack and wow cheap cheap cheap!!! We did just about everything they had and we could stretch the events over the week we were there because we didn't have to use the pass all in one day!!!! Something for everyone..

"Odd round of golf for us"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 13, 2018 NEW
My son and I went to Gatlin's for a round of mini golf as ominous clouds gathered. We hoped to golf 18 before the rain but it started lightning and poured halfway through. The staff was great and directed us to finish our game in their 9 hole indoor black light course. It was nice to be able to finish our game inside, although I wish I had not select a black ball - it was nearly impossible to see in the black light! Overall, the outside course was excellent and we were disappointed not to be able to finish, although the indoor course was fun too. Only complaint was price, it was over $30 for two people to mini golf. We had just golfed day before at Cooter's for $5 each so this was a bit more than expected.

"Great Fun. Get the full package though .. expensive otherwise"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed August 10, 2018 NEW
We bought the everything package that gave us a lot of activities for the four of us. THIS IS THE BEST DEAL!! We did the ropes course and an escape room that first day We did 5 escape rooms in 5 days in the area and the 2 we did at Gatlin's were among the most challenging. The ropes course was a lot more fun than I expected (really fantastic!) The Mini Golf Courses were all pretty good (though many of the holes tilt just a little due to being build on a hillside) Laser Tag was good (though I may be getting a little too old for it). Bumper cars were fun but the ride didn't last long. And my 8 year old loved the Laser Maze! But the beautiful thing about this was that we didn't have to do everything at once. This place would be really expensive for just Mini Golf or Just Laser Tag. But we got the package that included it all .. which comes with free Mini Golf for the week! This was great for us .. we would run by Gatlin's to do things to augment other activities .. Go to the Aquarium .. then play Laser Tag .. Go on a hike in the Smokies .. then mini golf .. Do the Haunting at Hyde House escape room and follow with Ripley's Haunted Adventure .. etc. We ended up at Gatlin's on at least 4 different occasions through the week we were there, but only bought the 1 major package at the beginning, and paid for the second escape room. This added up to a very good deal! The last thing to add is that the staff was friendly and very helpful .. and this place actually plays fair. When we had a vest malfunction at Laser Tag .. they didn't just refund the 1 player's round .. they let the whole family play again. You can tell that the whole staff wants to be sure you have fun while you are there. I highly recommend making the stop and spending some time here.

"Okay but kinda lame"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed August 08, 2018 NEW
If you are looking for something to do other than the escape room or mini golf, run!. The mini golf was nice but not challenging. The escape room was great. The bumper cars, laser tag and maze were lame. They were in a small area. Not worth the $ if buying those alone. We didn't do the ropes course due to rain.

"We only bought tickets for the put put course ... disappointed."
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 30, 2018 NEW
Maybe if we had time and could do the other Gatlin's activities we might have felt better. But just doing the put put course, we felt disappointed. Course was pretty boring, very very basic holes, all kinda run down. They were very short, hardly any fun or innovative displays. We basically didn't even finish. Definitely not up to the Davy Crockett or Hillbilly courses at all.

"Great play pass for your money."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 24, 2018 NEW
Expensive if you're just doing mini-golf, but buy the play pass for $5 more and kids can do their pick of 5 other activities. It was a well spent $20 per kid. Lazer maze, bumper cars, later tag and another game of tagging colors. It was fun for girls and boys. They need more seating for parents to wait, but parents can totally participate.
