My Husband and I were in Gatlinburg for our honeymoon. We had a blast playing mini golf, and going through the laser maze. We purchased the fun pass which got us a discounted escape room. Was definitely worth the visit, and we will go again!

John,

Thank you so much for visiting Gatlin's while you were in the Smokies! We are excited that you found good value in our "Unlimited Golf for $17.99" deal which allowed you to enjoy both of our 18 hole, award winning, outdoor courses as well as our exciting indoor, Blacklight Golf course as often as you liked during the entire length of your vacation!

We hope that you will come back and visit us again the next time you're in town!

Thanks for the visit and the kind review!

Marc

We came here to play the outdoor putt putt. We were just killing some time before we went to dinner so we didn't buy a package. If we came back or if we had kids, it would be worth the money most likely. It was pretty crowded on the outdoor course that night and there isn't a lot of room to wait on bigger groups or families.

The putt putt course was fun and informative. It was also amazing to see the scars of the fire on the course! Many of the trees and some of the buildings were charred. It's incredible to see. For about 10 bucks a person, I'd say it's worth it to do something here.

Nathan,

Thank you for visiting Gatlin's and for leaving a review here on TripAdvisor!

We are happy that you chose to spend some time with us while you were in Gatlinburg and that you found our outdoor mini golf to be fun and informative. We take a great deal of pride in offering our guests historic information about Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. As you noticed, we left behind a few remnants of the wildfires that devastated our area back in November of 2016 as a reminder of that difficult part of our history as well as the determination of our community to move forward afterwards. We're glad that you noticed and enjoyed that aspect of our courses, too.

We hope that you'll come back and visit us again the next time you are in the area.

Thanks again for your visit and review.

Sincerely,

Marc

Gatlin’s has nine attractions with packaged pricing. The location is excellent in the middle of downtown Gatlinburg. We had a three year old in our group so we chose to play one of the two outdoor mini golf courses. Both courses are built into a hillside so there are a lot of steps as you move around the course. Beautiful natural environment with beautiful landscaping. As we played the course we learned about the history of Gatlinburg which was very informative. We had a great family outing and needless to say my three year old Granddaughter won the game. The staff was both professional and very nice. Look forward to returning in the future.

Family of six purchased a six activity package, best value. This allowed us to mix and match the various activities. We came for the laser tag and played it three times. We did the bumper cars and laser maze. The black light mini golf was a surprise, it is ocean themed and nicely done. The bumper cars were lackluster. The laser maze was a favorite for the youngest (13). The workers were very friendly, great attitudes. Facilities were recently remodeled (2016) and looks great.
