I remember visiting with my teenage children when they first opened at this location. Ben Jones (aka Cooter) was there signing autographs. The kids were super excited as they had grown up watching Duke of Hazzard reruns while my husband and I remembered the originals. There were several people in line for autographs including my children. As it came to... More

You definitely have to be a fan of The Dukes of Hazard. My son loves the show so he really liked it. He got to sit in the General Lee, he thought that was great. Lots of show merchandise. So for a fan, it's a neat place to see.

We just visited today with our three daughters and had a blast! It was snowing and cold outside, so we figured that this was the perfect way to spend time together and still have fun while indoors. The indoor go carts were so much fun. The track is just an oval, but the carts go pretty fast and our oldest... More

Saturday, February 14th (2015) afforded an incredible adventure at Cooter's. Ben Jones (Cooter) was there to meet-and-greet and sign memorabilia. This man is a piece of American History and a great example/hero to all. First - the store is a museum of Dukes history with one-of-a-kind memorabilia in display cases, on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. If you... More

This was awesome! Go-carts, mini golf, memorabilia of all the Duke things. Watching the shows as we walked around. It was my favorite show growing up and loved getting to see all of it was one of my favorite parts of my trip! Kids will love it here!

This is not a museum. This is a gift shop with hazards alright. Crammed full of key chains and pens you can barely move. They have a minigolf game and a small go cart track. Nothing to scream yee ha about. Really was disappointed. Oh, they did have a General Lee 01 you could sit on and have a picture... More

We purchased a groupon package for Cooter's Place that included go-karts and mini golf for the entire family. It was a great deal, and we really enjoyed our time there. The kids and adults both loved the go-karts! It's a nice, indoor track, and the staff were very helpful. You get 7 minutes on the course, which was a lot... More
