When you & the boys are looking to blow off some steam on a hot day look no further than Riptide. With the river just down the road it's the perfect place for a competition to find who's buying the first round. Good shade for battling that nasty heat stroke after round 3 of 18 holes of chaos and rage.... More

Loved the Riptide mini golf, lots of fun. Not too crowded during the week, and price of $8.35 seemed fair (discounts avail for groups). Family of 4, our 2 teens loved it, and went back the next day for more. Two courses to choose from Forest and Lagoon. Also a small arcade there

This is the better of the two mini golf courses in Parksville. It has become a family tradition to play here at least twice during our mini vacation on the Island. The grounds are well-maintained and we always look forward to an ice cream cone treat following the golf.

This is a cute little putting course that allows you to have fun while still being a little competitive! I would highly suggest it!

My children 9 and 12 loved this 18 hole mini golf facility (there are 2 courses). It was creatively decorated and fun. The course had some challenges which led to lots of laughter. Great family spot.

We had 13 people in our party and the host was very helpful in suggesting how to get started and the best way to break up our party so we would get finished in a reasonable time. We had a group of young people with disabilities and the cost was amazingly affordable. All the participants had a lot of fun... More

Of the two mini-golf facilities we played (Paradise Fun Park being the other one) this was much more interesting. Both were challenging, and in good condition. Riptide was just more fun.

This mini-golf attraction provides for a fun time for both kids and adults. Being located close to many of the ocean-side resorts and Rathtrevor Provincial Park, it is a convenient stop to spend an hour or two, having to relatively straight-forward 18-hole courses to choose from.

Great little miniature golf course for kids. Was a bit crowded when we went but everyone seemed to be polite and waited their turn. Kids loved the water features. Not expensive so well worth the side trip to go up here. Parking lot had plenty of room even though it was crowded.
