     History
    Built in the early 1980's, Kissimmee's Xanadu had two sister clones in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Dells location has been torn down and replaced by a mini-golf course. The Kissimmee location closed in 1996, and has been 'For Sale' since. The Gatlinburg location since the late 80's has been a mini golf course and now a paved parking lot for a wedding chapel.
