We had 13 people in our party and the host was very helpful in suggesting how to get started and the best way to break up our party so we would get finished in a reasonable time. We had a group of young people with disabilities and the cost was amazingly affordable. All the participants had a lot of fun... More

Of the two mini-golf facilities we played (Paradise Fun Park being the other one) this was much more interesting. Both were challenging, and in good condition. Riptide was just more fun.

This mini-golf attraction provides for a fun time for both kids and adults. Being located close to many of the ocean-side resorts and Rathtrevor Provincial Park, it is a convenient stop to spend an hour or two, having to relatively straight-forward 18-hole courses to choose from.

Great little miniature golf course for kids. Was a bit crowded when we went but everyone seemed to be polite and waited their turn. Kids loved the water features. Not expensive so well worth the side trip to go up here. Parking lot had plenty of room even though it was crowded.

Two great mini golf courses. Nice and out of the sun. Quiet. Great ice cream including gluten free options. Very affordable also.

Mini golf and bumper cars were the activities we engaged in. My partner hit two holes in one on a really nice mini golf course so I lost by one point...grrr. I got back to him by hitting him often with my bumper car, all in good fun, of course.

When you play mini golf, you've got to stop being serious and go for the fun. This course is really good - lots of tricky spots (run backs, banks, etc). We have been here quite a few times and always have some good laughs along the way. The course itself is quite a feat of concrete walls, fences, buildings etc.... More

The golf course was definitely well-kept. Also, I liked the music (Oldies), as well as the difficulty (3 out of 5). I didn't like how commercial (not unique) the course was, the backstory was fake, and everything just seemed so phony. However, if you are not a mini-golf connoisseur, then this course is definitely worth a go.

We walked over to the mini putt from our resort early evening.(open till 8 pm) It's $8 per adult. With two mini putt courses to choose from ( mountain and lagoon), we had the space we needed without bumping into another group. Typically a family outing, this time of night was perfect friendly competition on our date. All dressed up... More
