OK golf course with more luck than skill needed. Some holes were in the dark! Fun for not too much money but cashier and train driver could use a dose of personality. Course could use some upkeep and some music

Cloudy day at the beach so decided to play minature golf. Enjoy Professor Hacker's. Starts off with a short train ride that takes you to the first green. It has nice waterfalls and caves. We even saw ducks with their baby ducklings, that was too cute. Would definitely recommend Professor Hacker's for a fun time. They also have go-carts and... More

Went to this location a couple of times for mini golf and go karts. The mini golf was a touch pricey, but good course. Go karts were a good value, about ten laps for $8.50, but the speed wasn't fast. Would be boring for adults. Gal that was working as cashier this past week needs to smile more. Very unfriendly... More

Nice mini golf course with a couple of fun twists. We found the staff to be very friendly, and while my stepson hated the required train ride up the mountain, he still had fun and wanted to come back. We liked that there were two courses also. I agree with the reviewer who said it is a little pricey ($9.50... More

I love that they have two golf courses. It cuts down on the wait time and also gives you a reason to come back. They have bumper boats and go-karts. It's a great thing to do with the family after the beach. I like the night golf personally. Ask about the armband that is good all day, open until 5,... More

Stopped twice while in the area. The gold was typical mini golf. It is a fun way to spend time time with family. We tried the karts the second time and was disappointed. Of the 4 karts we had one was so much faster it lapped the slowest twice during our time on the track. The slowest kart was so... More

We had a lot of fun. It is a little pricey, and when it is dark a little hard to see in spots. Kids loved the train ride.

I am not a big mini golf, but we were trying to burn off some energy of 2 year old. We all had a blast. You start out riding a train to the first hole. Honestly, that is what drew us to this place was the train ride, but the course was well maintained and fun. Not overly hard.

We were the only ones there, but the staff was not friendly at all. Nobody smiled or chatted, they just seemed really grouchy and annoyed that they had to help us. We did the Gold course and the layout of the stations were so boring. A slight hill here or there is not variety on a mini golf course. It... More

This park offers go cart race cars, bumper boats, miniature golf, and an arcade. The race cars and 2 mini golf courses were excellent. About half of the bumper boats were broken but they were not taken out of service. This was very frustrating for anyone who got stuck with the broken boat. The arcade games were not very good.....
