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..

We visit Gatlinburg every fall and this is a must for our whole family. For $20, you can do six activities. You could even do the same activity 6 times, if you so choose. I love that flexibility. Finding something affordable AND fun is a breath of fresh air in this tourist town. Highly recommend this attraction!

I found this to a quite the little hidden surprise. As I read the other reviews I could agree that if you paid to do any one of these activities by themselves it is NOT worth it at $13.95 HOWEVER they do have a great deal with their FUN PASS for $20 that allows you to pick 6 of one of these: Gatlin’s Mini Golf, Laser Tag, Bumper Cars, Blacklight Golf, The Vault Laser Maze Challenge, & Atomic Rush & you can do all of one or 1 of each, however you want to use it & the pass is good for 10 days which is another plus in my book. Some of the activities do seems a little “lame” but they end up costing very little when you buy the pass & the memories my family made together while we did those “lame” things are something we will treasure forever! It definitely worth checking out. I’m sure glad we did!

"Odd round of golf for us"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 13, 2018
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.
