    Great mini golf
    My wife and I went to the hickory falls family center to play mini golf and it was lots fun. There are lots activities here for families with kids. There is an arcade, go karts, mini golf and they have party packages for kids birthdays. The mini golf course was well maintained and you can tell the water falls and course are in good working order. It’s a gorgeous mini golf course. There are challenging holes on the course, so for mini golf lovers definitely would recommend this course.

    4 hrs 3 kids 18 bucks priceless
    I brought my 2 young children and my niece to play at the indoor playground at 6$ a piece you can't beat it. We got there at 230 and left at 630. They have food chicken tenders and fries combo .the fries taste like boardwalk fries. The indoor go karts look lame and slow but the indoor laser tag did look fun .I think was 12$ for 40 minutes. Everybody that was leaving the arena was leaving with a smile. They have games to play ranging from .50 to 1$ . I'm glad we found this place a great way to wear out the kids.

    Super nice place
    We were there for our granddaughters volleyball team dinner. Absolutely fantastic place for all ages. Food was good and the prices were point on. In looking around I never realized they have an awesome banquet room that over looks the fields. I encourage all to check this place out.

I have been to Hickory Falls a few times this year. The service is adequate and the mini-golf course is very nice. However, one of the things that boggles my brain is some of their ridiculous policies:
1. No outside food. Look, if mom wants to bring sandwiches for the kids so that the day at Hickory Falls doesn't cost her an arm and leg, let her! The place already costs a fortune for all the games, etc. Hickory Falls doesn't need to have a codified policy of trying to eek every cent out of every customer.
2. Similar, but not exactly the same - your bracelet (or whatever it is) is only good if you don't leave the premises. Once again, sorry Mom. Hickory Falls wants ALL your money! You're not allowed to take the kids to McDonald's.

I am surprised they don't have a rule saying that kids aren't allowed to share a hot dog.

The place is very nice, but the customer does not appear to be king!

Fun place for go-cart rides, laser tag, arcade games, and mini golf. My two pre-teens had a blast, especially on the go-carts. Can be a bit pricey if you want to do it all, but worth it!

Nice place to take the kids or Grandchildren for a day trip. It gets them out of the house and they have a lot of fun. They have Go-carts and a really nice Putt-Putt course to play and Laser Tag and a small bowling alley.

We like to bring our son here s few times a year to play games and he always has a blast. Now that they have Rita's it's even sweeter to visit ! Our little guy enjoys the play zone where cost $5-6 dollars and we can run around and play as long as he wants. We did go carting before which was a nice treat.. $7 a ride though, $3 for a passenger.
Most of the arcade games cost a $1 and you can easily load money on the card to play whatever you would like. Every once and awhile I find coupons in the local clipper insert for the attractions here which is great. They also except Rita's coupons too!!

These people refused to allow us to bring in a cake for our son because they consider that a "party". We intended to spend well over $200 here, but because of their silly "policy", they rejected us on principle, even though one of their employees told us over the phone bringing in just a cake was acceptable. I understand the need for rules for things like this, but common sense gets thrown out the window here it seems. A cake doesn't equal a party.

We have visited here too numerous to count. Lots of fun things for the whole family to do. They keep adding and adding activities. Early on, while still fun, it was primarily limited to miniature golf and an indoor play area with a small arcade but has grown to include indoor/outdoor go carts, laser tag and roller ball bowling. Fun for all seasons, rain or shine.

We were coming from Baltimore to the Utz Factory for a visit, so I was looking for somewhere in the immediate area where the kids 9-3 years old could have fun and burn off some energy on a hot, muggy day with a threat of rain. I read the reviews and we visited Hickory Falls.

The kids LOVED it! It was clean and very nice. They all loved the indoor playground for $6 all you can play. It was such an interesting play structure unlike any others I had seen before. And then we played some arcade games and got prizes. I love the fact that these are ticketless tickets.... they add onto your arcade "credit card". My only critique was that each game was $1 and up and there were only 1-2 games that were 50 cents. So... it seemed really quick to spend that $10 I gave each kid.

Overall, my 5 year old is still talking about going there to play again and my 9 year old still says it was a great time. We didn't even do the bowling, lazer tag, go karts or outdoor mini golf!

FYI: no outdoor food allowed.

The state is incorrect-this place is in Hanover, Pa 17331 not Hanover, Maryland.
Great place for kids and adults to spend a rainy day. Miniature golf, go-karts, video and pin ball games, bowling, huge tumble gym area. Places for you to eat inside or outside. Priced for value.

My kids had a fantastic afternoon on the indoor play structure. Tons of fun. Good place to go to burn some energy especially when it's too cold to play outside.
