I was looking for a local chip and putt to take my 11 year old stepson whom I am just introducing to golf. Many of the chip and putts in my area have closed over the years. (The land consumed by development). I found Vince's on the web and have to admit I was a little reluctant after reading some... More

The arcade is slightly out of date and smallish. The snack bar is basic. The Mini golf is inexpensive and fun. It could use a little refurbishment but it is not too shabby and for the prices, not bad at all. This is an affordable place to take the family for an afternoon of fun.

Really miserable excuse for a "fun" center. Junky little mini golf that has horrible lighting and more bugs than a swamp, run down old arcade with a LOT of broken games (can't they move them to storage if they are too cheap to fix or replace them?), and rip-off ticket games that only pay out a few tickets for high...

Ceiling looks like its going to fall down in some spots. We went July or August and I was amazed at the amount of spiders and Mosquitos. Bugs everywhere. The staff was ok but the place needs a lot of work. I rather drive to xbos even if it is farther and expensive. Sad we wish this place worked we... More

We have only been here to hit balls at the batting cages, which are conveniently indoors for a nice rainy day activity. Yes there is paint chipping off of the walls and holes in the ceiling are patched poorly, but the pitching machines still work so it doesn't matter to me what the place looks like.

We have taken two sets of grand kids here to play put-put golf. They all had fun, but some repairs could be done to upgrade the facility. One grand son wanted to do some softball hitting, but he was too short to do the job HE wanted to do.

Run down and not well lit. We went in the early afternoon and as it started getting dark it was very difficult to play mini golf.

When my children were little this was the place to host a birthday party. The par-3 course was a fun diversion. Now it looks and feels tired and is just going through the motions. It is sad because there is a real need and market for Vince's. A fresh coat of paint, some light bulbs, and modern games would be... More

Very dirty with a lot of cursing. Some games that are not functioning. Used to be a fun place with minature golf and a small par three golf course but the crowd is too rough for me to take my kids there now. I will drive the extra distance for the fun zone in Middletown.
