Have played the mini putt putt a few times here. My 4 yr loves it. For those older, its fun as it has challenges that can affect your score. Last time we went we did the maze. It requires you to find letters to punch a ticket to spell out a word . There's a couple levels and both are... More

Nice 18hole miniature golf course. Alot of shade from the trees and nice scenery. Maze was fun for my two boys. Not too difficult.

I took my grandsons to play miniature golf and had a ball. The course had spinning disks that each player could spin and be challenged by different tasks. The kids loved it. Then we played laser tag. We had so much fun we had to play it a second time. We had played laser tag indoors at other places but... More

My family and I went on opening day in April, and had a great time. The course is pretty, complete with ponds, waterfalls, and streams. It is an 18 hole course, most holes are basic, nothing elaborate (no windmills to putt through). On some holes you can have some fun with a challenge wheel. You spin the wheel and whatever... More

This place is pretty neat, I've only done the mini-golf, which is fun with spinners that give you extra challenges. I took my neice and nephew and they did the maze and found it fun. The ice cream was good but nothing to write home about. I want to try the lazer tag because it looks well put together.

That is how my 12 year old son described his recent battleground laser tag party. A few words to describe the place: fun, cool, up to date, safe, efficient, friendly, competent and affordable. Very nice Big Don...very nice!

I live very close to this place so I have been there many times. The cost is reasonable and they offer coupons locally. Ice cream is inexpensive too! Very well maintained with a great location.

This mini golf course can be enjoyed by all ages. It's good family fun! There are many more things to do there besides the golfing. You can grab a snack, play laser tag, or rock climb.

We had our son's 11th birthday party at Big Don's, a laser tag party. The price was right, it was easy - all we had to do was show up with the cake - and the children had a great time. The young man assigned to our party was pleasant, helpful and interacted well with the children.
