“Changed over the years but still worthwhile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

The vibe at the Patio Playground has definitely changed over the past couple of years, but it is a wonderful resource in Topsail Beach and should be on your "to visit" list. The ice cream is always a great deal, there's also Italian Ice, and they've revamped the arcade section. The putt putt remains fun for kids of all ages. While the vibe is a bit more straightforward compared to before, it still beats going anywhere else (like off-island) for family fun.

“Very cute little place to bring the kiddies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Have visited Patio Playground several times with my son and we both love it. Mini golf, ice cream, arcade games and fun music -- nice family fun spot when you're on vacation (or daycation, as the case may be for day-trippers). Check it out!

“Family FUN at its BEST!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Miniature golf in its purest form -- bank those shots. This was the "SPOT" for family fun. Everyone laughing! Singing & dancing to the lively music with the DJ!!! We didn't try the ice cream, but it looked fabulous.

“AwesomomePutt-Putt and Ice Cream!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We had such a great time at the Patio Playground during our family vacation. The putt-putt was so much fun, and of all the years we have been to Topsail, this place by far had the best ice cream!! We went on a Friday night when they had a family DJ, and it was a ton of fun! The kids and even some adults danced up a storm doing the Cha-cha slide and many other dances! Can't wait to go back already!
