It's a tradition to go to fanny farkles to get a corn dog everytime we go to gatlinburg. I have grown up going to gatlinburg as well as fanny farkles. When we come into town I roll my window down to try and catch a whiff of the food driving by. I love the drink cups they provide. I have... More

My husband and I love going here just to good off and be kids again. They have gone away from their physical tickets, to your points being placed on a card. It's nice that they are going with the times, but I always like the fact that they were old school and still had tickets. And while you are there,... More

We stopped at Fanny Farkles every night we were in town to play a few games. They have a large selection of games and prizes and the staff is quite friendly (much more so than the other arcades in town). Skip the others and go Fanny Farkles.

I went mainly to play skeeball. There's not a lot of variety, but the usual arcade style and claw drop games abound. The few kids running around seemed to be enjoying themselves.

We arrived in Gatlinburg a little late but decided to just grab a quick bite. The dog was not bad. But the price was really high for the dog. It wasn't worth the price I paid.

Great Place for kids and family. My daughter played Wheel of Fortune and ended up getting 7000 points. Like the idea of the e-tickets, no more carrying around a bunch of paper tickets.

We've been coming here for about 17 yrs since my daughter was a baby and this was always her favorite place to play. We'd go here and spend hours playing games and winning little prizes. We went there last night and they have changed out most games and everything is $1 or more. Most games last seconds to maybe 1-2... More

Good way to spend a little time of the Main Street with kids. They love arcade games and they had plenty for all different age ranges which made it nice because we have different age range of kids. Prizes were normal at places like this and the kids shared a giant corndog and lemonade for a snack to hold off... More

We had fun playing in the arcade, didn't eat any of the food but it sure smelled good. The prizes did seem to cost more points than they did when we were here in December. My daughter got a much nicer prize then for less than what she got this time in July. We had fun though and will probably... More
