Arcadia is a 25,000 square foot arcade containing over 150 games, activities, and simulators for you and your family to enjoy. There is something for everyone to do here, whether you're a fan of classic games like ski ball or you're all about the latest-and-greatest. Some of their newest games include Star Wars Battle Pod, Mario Kart GP DX Arcade, Time Crisis 5, Jurassic Park, and Pac-Man Smash.
Playing games will earn you eTickets, which are redeemable for prizes. If you earn enough tickets, you could go home with a new gaming console or a tablet!

If you need further convincing, Arcadia is located below the Gatlinburg Space Needle, so visits to both spots can be easily tied together. Iris Theater and The Captured: A Live Escape Experience are also in the same building. There are enough things to do at the Space Needle to fill an entire day!
