I'm not sure why some people say it's not kid friendly, we found it to be terrific with our kids ranging from 7 - 15. One of the workers (who are all pretty young) let us have them hold my daughter's coat she didn't need at their station while we played. It's a fun course, nicely updated (compared to a... More

This is by far the best mini golf course I have ever been to. I read about it online and decided to give it a shot. It was such a good time and I would def go back. The holes are challenging and it never gets boring. The atmosphere is nice and the staff was great. The price was reasonable... More

I took a couple of my kids here. There are two courses and we ended up doing both. The kids loved it and I have to say the courses are interesting. A nice day.

I liked the elaborate hole designs, clear area, and multiple courses. I don't like the cash only, military-style attendants, and height requirement (my youngest still hasn't been able to go)

I have been to Par-King many times. Golfing is seasonal and weather permitting, price varies depending on day/time. The history of the course and the figures are quite entertaining.

This miniature golf course has many unusual, fun holes. If you are taking young children call ahead because they have restricted age and time rules.

We've driven past ParKing hundreds of times in the past several years. I've previously checked online and knew that they had a 48inch height requirement. my little guy just reached 48 inches so we decided to check it out. I am so glad we went. it was so awesome. Went on a week day so it was not very crowded... More
