My kids love the outdoor laser tag and we all enjoy the mini golf. Good family fun and coupons are always in the Clipper to save you some $.

This is a very nice adventure golf course, especially since we don't have any around these parts! Laser tag is excellent as well. A couple of the other activities are lame and pricing is a bit high, but overall a good experience

Thank you for rating us as "very good". We really appreciate the positive feedback. I wish you had specified the "lame" activities as we are always looking to improve our facility but you obviously love the laser tag and mini golf so we'll be thankful for that. Please visit again. Regards, Big Don

We found Big Don's by searching TripAdvisor on our way back from Niagara Falls to CT. What a great find! Tons of fun and reasonably priced. Laser tag for 2, 2 bags of gem mining and mini golf for 3 for about $50. My boys are 7 and 9. Hours of fun!!!!

Fun plane to mini gulf. Only gave four stars instead of 5 and we went twice and both times the kids charged us an extra dollar. Great place to bring the whole family!

Carl, thanks so much for the 4 star review. We appreciate it. I'm not sure why the staff member charged an extra $1 on your 2 visits but I do apologize for that mistake. Not sure if you had a senior in your group or not (that would be worth a dollar off) and teens don't typically guess who is a senior.... anyway please always feel free to challenge a mistake at the time so we can correct on the spot. Anyway if you would send me an email at don@bigdons.com and we will fix that for you. Thanks again for visiting and we appreciate your patronage. Regards, Don

Big Don's offer many activities. We tried 3 while we visited. They are expensive, 3 activities for 2 children ran $50 +. The children enjoyed the digging for buried treasure activity. You choose a sectioned off spot in a sand box and dig with a shovel and sifting pan for buried items. The kids had found many items such as shells and stones which they are permitted to keep. They played the Maze activity which required them to race through a maze to find items. They enjoyed this activity as well. The 3rd activity was the putt putt golf. It is beautiful and very well done with waterfalls etc. The children like this activity too. It is a great way to take up some time while the kids enjoy having fun. It would be nice if they had a create your own package to cut down on the exurbanite cost. They offered a limited choice of packages but not with any of the activities our children were interested in.

First and foremost, thank you so much for the five star review and we are very glad you enjoyed your visit. It was nice of you to take the time and thanks for the input. I am sorry that one of our popular packages did not work for your outing. We are always trying to come up with ways for people to have affordable fun and will continue to try to offer the best value that we can to our customers noting we are a seasonal business that would like to be here for customers for years to come
For your benefit should you visit again and for others reading your review and my response, we have five different summertime packages for 3 or more activities ranging from $12 to $23 per person which is for four activities including a half hour of laser tag , we offer five different weekday specials where food or activities are FREE with an activity purchase (the only family fun center to do that in the Syracuse area), a standard $1 off second and third activity + pricing every day, senior and military discounts, call ahead discounts for laser tag for four or more players, deep group discounts for organizations, SYRACUSE ENJOY the CITY BOGO for laser tag and mini golf and Clipper Magazine and other publication coupons for many of our activities. We do want people to enjoy a quality experience at our fun center so we will continue to come up with new ones with our customers input so that they can return affordably again and again as they have been for 13 seasons. Thanks again for the nice review. Regards, Don
