Great for everyone! This is a summer staple for me and my (now recently) husband. They have mini golf, a maze that also has the option for a water gun fight, rock climbing (for kids), gold "mining", some kind of metal detector activity, and a REALLY COOL laser tag area outdoors. There are picnic tables and a pavilion available for rent.
I've done a few of these activities, but not all. The mini golf is basically the average mini golf experience. They do have some "trick" holes. Their one difference is they have wheels to spin to do funny "dares" like golf on 1 foot or someone can stand anywhere they want on the green when another person is shooting. Just silly, fun little things to change up the experience. Unfortunately, the last time I went mini golfing in July these were broken. Big Don himself mentioned he was looking to replace them for next season. Maybe I should suggest looking into a stable wood circle, with a spinning arrow. Perhaps that would save him money when they broke...
The maze is basically made up of a bunch of plastic walls. You have a card that allows you to keep time by getting it stamped when you go in and when you get out. There are 4 stations per a game where you get letters hole punched that you're trying to find. You can play the maze 2 times in a visit since there are 2 words to search out. They change it up every few weeks, so it's always different. I thought it was pretty fun.
They also have a water gun fight option with water stations around the maze. You run through with water tubes and blast water at anyone else playing -- usually your friends. :)
The last time I went was in September though, and I tried the laser tag. It was SO COOL! It was like playing a first person shooting game. Nothing like normal laser tag. It was more like paintball without the fear of getting bruised. Metal guns, headshots only, barricades/forts, and missions are the main reasons I can list off the top of my head for why this was unlike any laser tag I have ever played before. It's not really for kids, but more for pre-teen and older. I would HIGHLY suggest this to anyone who enjoys paintball or first person shoot games. I think the 1 hour was the best deal; I think more would have been too much and less wouldn't have been enough.
On a side note; there is a lot of water in this activity center. The mini golf has a river going through it and the water fights in the maze add to the puddles making it bug crazy when I went. Make sure to bring bug spray! Even the laser tag arena got a bit buggy at night, but that was probably because of the dirt and shrubs.
