I do not go here anymore- they would not allow SUPERVISED young children (height restriction), nor take a credit card last time I went.

This is an awesome place. But a few caveats: you have to be 48 inches. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is if looking for an activity with kids. Cash only, and only groups of 4 (so if you have 5...More

Clean location, everything functioning, newly painted. The staff was helpful. There's a large sign that said that spectators must stay off course. Lots of covered picnic benches. kids 10-12 had fun.

I absolutely love this course. Honestly, the design is beyond creative and really provides you with a sense of what themed mini golf courses should be. The theming and mechanical components play in with every single shot you take, especially on holes like the "Roller...More

Amazing place to visit for miniature golfing. The location has two separate 18-hole courses that you can play (e.g., "Red" course and "Black" course). Each of the 36 holes has a different theme/design and set-up that makes it fun and unique. Many of the holes...More
