Every mini-golf seems to have their own nuance to draw people in, and in addition to caves, waterfalls ,and challenging holes, this one starts with a train ride to the start of the two courses.

Thankfully we read the reviews before going to Jurassic Putt, which is nearby. This mini golf place was excellent. The mining car ride was fun for our daughter and there are 2 courses. You are randomly assigned, but both are fun. We were on Diamond and snuck over to see the pirate ship on Gold. They must anticipate this because... More

There are several Professor Hacker's courses on the east coast. I have played at the one in N Myrtle Beach - and the concept and layout is much of the same as the N. Myrtle location.

This was a nice course, better than many I've played. They don't charge if your young children use a plastic club, which is really nice given my 3 yr old's attention span for golf ;) The train to the first hole is a fun attraction too, and the diamond course we played was at a difficulty that my 6 yr...

I love mini golf.....seriously, I love it. But this place was just a complete let down. Given some astro turf, I could've done a better job in my back yard. Also, no Par markings? Really? How the heck do you score without it. Also, when asked, the attendant just blinked at me and walked away. VERY disappointed in this place,... More

So much fun! The only negative was the wait (about 30-40 minutes), but it was worth it. It was fun to take the "train" to the first hole. This was actually one of the most challenging mini golf experiences I've had.

Neat place to play a round. You start on a little train ride. We went at 6 ish and there was a line but of expected length. When we left the line was through the parking lot / no spaces left / big wait. Very fun About $10 per person Good value for time spent.

This course allows you to play one of two mini golf courses. We were on the gold course and there is the diamond course. You ride a mine train from the admissions to the start of the course. They have several holes in caves, there is a pirate ship and waterfalls. Good for younger kids. Not too complicated of holes.

This is the best miniature golf course in this area. Brilliantly designed and stands out from the other miniature golf courses like mutiny bay and Jurassic putt. Loved the train ride to the top of the course. But you may be rushed to complete the courses if there are too many people following you. But children will definitely enjoy this
