It's just like any other mini golf place except it's lit up with black lights. Pretty fun and it's kinda dark in places but it doesn't seem to interfere with the game. My son had... read more

I took my 9 year old son to Shankz this weekend for his birthday party. They are now at the Yard Birds mall in Chehalis and it was amazing! The staff was amazing and very helpful. They had an arcade with all sorts of old school games, a black light mini golf course that had really cool art painted on... More

We went and it seemed pretty dead. There was great neon paintings all over and animal displays. Our son loved those. The holes are pretty easy so I am assuming it is for the kids. The customer service was amazing! He was a really nice guy! Overall, I think there could be music and more action going on?

Ok, well, it sort of ....rains....here. And sometimes it rains and is cold at the same time. This is a great time to read a book, but eventually that wears on the nerves also. The Shankz Black Light Mini Golf is a fun way to while away a couple of hours as an alternative to staying in! Holes are generally... More

It is fun to mini golf in the black lights, but the holes were nothing special, very easy. It is small so we were done with the holes super quick. It was a good thing to try out, and it is nice as an indoor activity in rainy Olympia

Firstly I happen to think putt putt golf is one of those awesome fun things to do anytime anywhere and I have a hard time passing up a chance to play a little. I think everyone needs a little putt putt in their life. That said I can be a bit of a critic of the ":courses" having played so... More

In rainy Washington, we were looking for something fun to do, and stumbled upon Shankz Black Light Mini Golf, we figured we would give it a try. It was super relaxed, fun, we had a great time. The mini golf course was laid-out nicely and walls provided privacy for each group; definitely fun for all ages.

Our granddaughter takes us to Shankz and we always have a good time. The golf is fun and everyone -- young or old -- can play. We have had a birthday party there and all the children enjoyed it.

I had a dual birthday party for my 5 year old son and my 12 year old sister-inlaw. We had 30 people! Everything started out great when we first got there and the employer in the beginning shift was very patient and I thank him for also being very understanding that our party was late. (due to our car breaking... More

I took my seven-year-old daughter on a Saturday and we had fabulous fun! The gentleman who helped us was patient, funny, and obviously good with children. The black-light areas were well laid out, and just challenging enough to be fun. We've been to mini-golf at various places in North America, and this is one of the most fun. If we... More
