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

Great for all the family. 2 different 18 hole crazy golf courses. Everything is very well kept with plenty of tables in between the two courses to sit around and enjoy some the delicious ice-cream they sell. Staff were extremely friendly. Toilet facilities were clean and there was good parking outside. You can pick up the Top Bridge trail from... More

As far as minigolf courses go, it's cute, fun, clean and colourful. My husband and I had a blast (but then who doesn't at minigolf?). When we went, it wasn't overrun with people and screaming kids, which is always great (quite a few adult only parties). Still, it's extremely kid friendly and a great way to spend part of a... More
