Smuggler’s Notch Go Zone

On the first floor of the Smuggler’s Notch Resort Kid Zone 2.0 is the arcade and Go Zone. The Go Zone activities do require an additional fee.

Indoor closed-toe shoes (no snow boots) are required to participate in Laser Tag and the Go Zone attractions.


Rock Climbing Wall

You can’t miss this 30 foot double-sided climbing wall. It extends from the lower level and up through the second floor of the Smuggler’s Notch Fun Zone. The walls are clear! Your kids can climb wall to wall or have a staring contest as they climb on opposite sides of the same wall. $5 per climb.

Leap of Faith

Can you take a leal of faith from this two-story platform? Climb to the top with the ladder and then step off or jump. My teen jumped! $5 per climb.

Warrior Course

Test your ninja warrior skills against one of your kids or have the kids go head to head in Smugglers Warrior course. As my boys quickly found out, it’s not as easy as they thought it looked. The two cutting-edge Smuggs Warrior course are designed slightly different from each other and work with a timing system. There’s even a button to slam when they complete the course, just like you see on tv. $5 per run/per guest.

Air Hockey

Arcade Games

On the first level of the Smugglers Notch Fun Zone 2.0 is the 2,000 square foot arcade with 30 plus games and redemption center. There are arcade favorites like air hockey, skeeball, crane games, and a photo booth as well as some more modern games. Many games allow guests to earn tickets that can be redeemed for prizes in the redemption center. But no worries, the tickets are saved to your card so there’s nothing to keep track of and you can save them for your next Smuggler’s visit. We found the arcade games prices to vary by game. Most were between $.50 to $1.

Lazer Frenzy Laser Maze

The Lazer Frenzy is part of the Go Zone but located at the back of the arcade. It’s a fun and unique laser maze that offers a variety of challenges to test agility while getting through a maze of laser beams. $3 per game.

Smugglers Notch Resort Laser Tag

We had a lot of fun in the Ice Warriors- Defenders of the Notch – Laser Tag game. We could play everyone for themselves or team against team. I teamed up with my teenager and my husband teamed up with my younger boys. It was a race around the 3,500 square foot, multi-level, custom themed laser tag arena trying to see who could outdo/outshoot who. It was like a race around an ice forest. The fee was $10 per game or $16 for two games. Each game was about 10 minutes long.
