If you’re looking for some fun and excitement in Pigeon Forge TN, then look no further than the area’s best arcades!
There are plenty of great options to choose from, whether you’re a fan of classic games or want to try out the latest arcade games. Arcades are great to pass the time if it’s too hot or cold out, or maybe it’s raining and you need something indoors to do, or even if you are just a big fan of arcade games!
As a kid I was always drawn to arcades and really enjoyed the claw machine, where I could often win awesome prizes. I also still love those and a classic game of SkeeBall!
Today we’re going to take a look at the top arcades in Pigeon Forge, so you can start planning your next visit.
Arcade City at the Island in Pigeon Forge
When you visit the Island and grab your tickets for the rides and the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, you’ll be inside Arcade City. It’s a really good size arcade with tons of games to play and activities to do, and of course plenty of claw machines to try and win some prizes.
There are plenty of games here for both adults and children, so no one is left out. The best way to play is to buy a play pass. As of the time of this writing you can save $5 or more on the games.
Location: 131 Island Dr #1105 Pigeon Forge
Big Top Arcade
This is similar to Arcade City but is a bit smaller. If the huge arcades overwhelm you, you might like Big Top Arcade. It’s run by the same company as Arcade City and is conveniently located on the Parkway (parking at the Island can be a pain sometimes).
You’ll still find a great variety of games for kids and adults and helpful employees. One of the pluses for this one is that reviewers say it’s not as busy as some of the other arcades. You can get the same deal on a play card as its sister arcade, too.
Location: 3275 Parkway, Pigeon Forge
Rockin Raceway Arcade
Rockin Raceway is an adventure park with an indoor and outdoor section, which means it’s great for all kinds of weather. Of course, there are plenty of games and activities both indoors and out.
This isn’t just an arcade- there is a great go kart track, too, which is so much fun for kids (and adults alike). This is a large arcade and many reviewers state they come here every year and it’s their favorite. Definitely a place to check out.
Location: 2839 Parkway, Pigeon Forge
Lazerport Fun Center
Lazerport is another great option that has an arcade, go karts, mini golf and laser tag all in one spot. It’s perfect if you have a group of kids with different interests because there is something for everyone here.
This Pigeon Forge arcade boasts 10,000 square feet and has all the classics like skeeball and air hockey as well as the latest games. You can also buy a park hopper pass that gets you access to your choice of the activities, or just pay for each one separately.
Location: 2782 Parkway, Pigeon Forge
TopJump Trampoline and Extreme Arena
TopJump is a trampoline park that also has an arcade, so it’s perfect for those who want to work up a sweat and then relax with some games. The arena has a lot of space and plenty of games to keep you entertained.
I love taking my kids to trampoline parks when the weather isn’t nice and letting them get their energy out, and this is a great spot in Pigeon Forge to do it! After you jump, head over to the arcade for 5000 feet of arcade space and games for both kids and adults.
Location: 3735 Parkway, Pigeon Forge
MagiQuest Adventure Arcade
We visit Pigeon Forge a lot and one of those times my third son picked up a MagiQuest brochure (he was 5 then). He was obsessed with the idea of going there and so later that summer my parents took him for his MagiQuest adventure!
There are four attractions in one here: MagiQuest, which is super cool and send you on an adventure with a magic wand, Pirate Golf, blacklight mini golf course, the Adventure Arcade (where it says you can play Redemption Games) and a mirror maze adventure. My son is itching to go back and take the rest of us.
