The train ride is a great indication of a wonderful time coming. The owner and staff makes you feel right at home and delivers a great time for all. The challenge is not for the faint of heart. The course is filled with water obstacles. The laughs are plentiful. Check out the local attraction books and get their coupon and... More

Was not impressed with this attraction. The place seems like it was built around a fun theme, but has been lost since. The prices were high compared to the others around and that seems clear because of the upkeep for all of the props. However, it is still not kept up that well. The water stinks, you can see the...

This is the right place when the red flag is on the beach. Kids loved it. All ages. Fun time. Cool bc of the water falls and water running all around make you forget the heat of the days.

fun ride in a mining cart to start the course, then a Pirate ship hole! Fun mini golf and lots of photo opportunities!

I recently played a round of mini golf here while on a weekend vacation out to the Outer Banks. While the course looks really fun from the roadside, it rapidly gets crowded in the afternoon/evenings, and there is a lot of waiting time to play through. They do have two courses, and try to funnel people to one or the... More

As others have remarked, great curb appeal and atmosphere. My grandson wanted to play the “Pirate Ship putt-putt”. The train ride to the top, for the first hole is great for the kids, and works well to moderate congestion. There are two courses, Gold and Diamond. Not sure if you can request a specific course, ours was assigned by the... More

We were in vacation in Kill Devil Hills and out of the several miniature golf places in the area we thought this would be the best place. We found the coupon online so that was an added bonus. From the moment we arrived we had a great time. I will admit I got a little excited and hit my ball... More

We loved the way this mini golf course was run. There's a little coal trail that takes you up to the start of the course, and there are two courses so we're not all starting at the same course. And the time delay while taking us up to the start gives the families in front of us time to finish... More

They spent all their creativity on curb appeal to draw people in. Then they get you to pay $10 a person (adults) and sent you out to their boring course. There were very few obsticals and the course did not get more difficult as you went. There were so many missed opportunities for fun obsticals with the pirate theme! However,... More

We enjoyed our time at mini-golf and the kids picked this after driving by and seeing the extensive landscaping. We found they have an early bird coupon, which was great as it got us there before the big crowds show up around dinner time. Staff was friendly, course was fun. They have 2 courses, we played the Gold.
