    Any locations to play in these areas that anyone knows of personally

    #2 4 years ago

    There was a Ripleys at the Ripley's mini golf at 5 Oaks as of last year. And I've heard rumors of there being three inside the arcade on the Gatlinburg strip by the Space Needle, but it may or may not still be closed since someone jumped from the Needle on Monday. Otherwise, there's not much.

    You may want to check the latest on RotorDave's trip thread since he's in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg right now, and there are some Knoxville guys (Drewblood, VolunteerPin) with pins who may be able to help give more current info.

    #3 4 years ago

    Last year the space needle had a twd, theres a pizza joint in pigeon forge with a nascar, thats all i saw last year

    #4 4 years ago

    Cool, thanks. The space needle is open but I haven't checked it yet . I'll post whatever i may find for others

    There are a few places out here in Knoxville there is a putt putt minigolf with a TZ and I think there is a bar with a lord of the rings and maybea few others there is another walking dead pro at Carolina alehouse in Knoxville. And if I remember right somewhere in pigeon Forge in one of the arcades there is a junkyard

    There's so many people in town for the Hot Rod show, you'll spend the whole weekend stuck in 2 mile an hour traffic and have no time left to play any pins anyway.

    Yes, found aJunkyard and NBA fastbreak at fast tracks arcade. ...both with bum flippers. Jy left flipper wouldn't hold and nba right flipper was offset. Still easy to get free games on though, jy more though.

    Yep. ..had to go way around town to get out of pigeon forge and into Gatlinburg. .traffic sux,pins OK but the hot rods are awesome.

    There was a Spiderman up top of Ober Gatlinburg. As of a month ago, there was a TWD at the Space Needle.. I heard there were some at Big Daddys pizza in Pigeon Forge. Love Gatlinburg! The one above the steak house in Gatlinburg are no longer there

    Any updates on pins here? We will be there next week...

    #11 4 years ago

    I'm here right now and the only thing I've seen is a walking dead pro in the arcade at the space needle thing in downtown Gatlinburg.

    #12 4 years ago

    Damn, I've got that at home!

    #13 4 years ago

    There's a burger joint on the strip in G'burg - it has a game room in the back that usually has a pin or two. Elvis was there the last time I was there, but I can't remember the name of it - 50s diner type of place.

    Over 25 pinballs at the Space Needle in Gatlinburg

    Quoted from TheArcadia:

    Damn!! Wish I had none this back in May, I was looking all over Pigeon Forge while on vacation, all I found was a tired RBION at the mini golf....

    #16 3 years ago

    Dang! Last year (sept 2016) there was just walking dead. Next time I'm in the Smokies I vowed not to stay in Gatlinburg but this may change my mind!

    Quoted from TheArcadia:

    Over 25 pinballs at the Space Needle in Gatlinburg

    OMG! We just got to Gatlinburg wednesday, 20th for 10 days, imagine our surprise when we walked in and saw these!! It's been TWD for 2 years and now bam-all these. And don't let that Arcadia poster fool ya , these are NICE! They are all Stern LE's, JJP, some older 90's pins but all look new, alot of color DMD's, toppers, etc. Wow, this guy went all out! I went through 1/2 of my $50 tokens in one night, yes I suck! But we are staying across the st and will visit every night! Oh and so far, I've seen a tech onsite every night!!

    The list, hope I got them all:::TAF, ST, AFM(remake), Avengers, GB, GOT, The new Star Wars, Hobbit, JP, Spiderman, LOTR, MM (remake), Harley D, Transformers, TWD, Tron, WOZ, Batman 66, AS, Kiss, MetRolling Stones, CFTBL, AC/DC, GNR, Avatar, Xmen, Hurricane, IM. I think that's all of em. Could be leveled better side to side but an impressive lineup!!

    Wondering if there might be any other Pinside dads at the dance nationals in Pigeon Forge this week? Haven't hit the Space Needle yet but oh boy, it's comin. And I'm pretty damn excited about it.
    Not as excited as the Dying Fetus/Incantation/Gatecreeper show announced today, but pretty doggone excited.

    #19 2 years ago

    Gryszz, good luck, I couldn't imagine raising daughters and going to those competitions. I spent my time at swim meets so I missed the rhinestones and ribbons.

    What is the payment system installed on those machines?

    #20 2 years ago

    Im going the week of july 23rd if anyone wants to play some pinball there.

    #21 2 years ago

    I’m down here now and was just at the arcade in gatlinburg, very nice machines for being on location.

    Great arcade all around and some of the biggest pizzas I’ve ever seen!

    Well my girls won two 1st places and a 3rd place, with one dance taking #1 best of the best overall. Super proud dad here.
    The arcade was pretty cool; games in great shape. Got my initials on WOZ but I don't really think "top score if the day" means much lol.

    Black Knight, he had a card swipe on every machine...arcade, redemption, and pins. Smart move. I spent $80 in there in the blink of an eye. Can't imagine dropping $50 in quarters in a machine in a whole night even.

    In gatlinburg for the week. Any other pinsiders out here?

    #26 2 years ago

    There's a guy in Knoxville, Tennessee pin I think...

    #27 2 years ago

    Space needle arcade. A few pins behind them, but off and stored right now. All in good shape and played well. Really liked batman 66!

    I love that area what a beautiful pocket of Americana! I would think there would be Dolly's pins on every corner!

    Is that what you’re calling it these days?

    Pigeon Forge is pretty cool. Don’t forget to check out Cooters ... and a few doors up there was a moonshine place that’ll knock your socks off.

    You’re late. Me and my new pup Sam already passed through town. Figured you took one look at him and ran off with your tail between your legs.

    Was in Gatlinburg earlier this week.
    Fantastic location, heartily recommended!
    Games were in super condition for a tourist location.
