This place was a great spot and respite for the kids and parents alike. We traveled with two kids under three who found everything fun and exciting. The little kids area needs a lot of cleaning. The little square mats are really dirty and the benches used in the area need to be replaced. The little kids blow up bounce... More

The first day of our visit to the Snowshoe Ski Resort, it was raining and we didn't want to ski under the rain so we went in here. It's a small arcade and entertainment place. It has some jumping, 2 pool tables, corn hole boards, and some older arcade games. It was better than sitting in the room but nothing... More

This place needs to be renovated, but the staff is friendly. My 9 yr had fun, we were there close to 2hrs because there was no snow while I was visiting and it was a rainy day, so instead of been stock inside the hotel room we took him there. I was glad we were able to at least have... More

We came at the end of the season, so the crowds were largely missing. It's a bit pricey at $20 per head, but if there aren't lines to contend with for the bungee and rock wall, it's worth it. It's tied in with the shavers center, which is in bad need of renovation, but the kids didn't care that it... More

I took a toddler during the morning/afternoon during busy slope hours. The staff was really nice and there is a lot of space to run around. When I visited, there pre-ski school and daycare was happening. There were 3 inflatable moonbounces ( 1 slide, 1 large ring, and a with 2 running lanes) which were fun. There was a section... More

Staff is really nice and doing the best the can. However it's boring in there and my kids said they wouldn't be interested in returning. I paid for Kids Night Out so I could go to dinner and have some adult time. I paid $100.00 for three hours for two kids. I also had to supply the coins for them... More

It was included in the lodging package so we took the kids. Would not have paid the money otherwise. Not that big a deal.

Pretty tired place. Kind of dirty. They will charge you $20/kid if you don't book through Snowshoe Mountain Resort.

We went to the Big Top one evening due to the fact that this year, Snowshoe had not great snow for skiing. It wasn't a bad experience, but the game machines were terrible! The air hockey game sucked the puck deep into the bowels of the machine, the skee ball machines were crappy, and half of the rest of the... More

We have a 12 and a 9 year old. We took them along with some friends to the Big Top so the adults could go to dinner. The kids were instantly engaged, phones down and enjoying all the place had to offer. There is something for all the kids here but I would limit the age to under 14.
