We played on a busy Saturday night with rain in the forecast and were pleasantly surprised. We did get a coupon at our hotel so we paid $5 each for my wife, teenage daughter and myself. The only complaint was that we weren't given a scorecard and didn't want to go back outside to get one after we realized this but that is as much our fault as theirs. The course was very colorful and easy to navigate. One thing I noticed was that each hole had an hinged opening that made the course completely wheelchair accessible. There where many photo opportunities throughout the course as well. We will definitely play this course again.

Indoor black light mini golf is usually pretty terrible in my experience. This is very cute for what it is. $5 coupons in all the coupon books - for that price, it’s definitely worth it. And out of the weather. Best mini golf I’ve ever played? No. But it’s very good for the price.

For the cost, this is an excellent time! Simple course, but so much fun. The black light and neon colors are really just a great laugh. It is well worth the time, especially if you're just looking to have quality and a good time with your group. It was 18 holes, and in total took us around an hour to complete with four (4) people.

We went while things were opening back up due to COVID, so we were not allowed to have score cards. That was the only big bummer.

They did not wipe down the putters after use, but luckily we had wipes and hand sanitizer of our own - was not a deal breaker for us. Just might want to keep in mind if you go!

There are absolutely no fun/interesting holes with any interactive elements. The place is absolutely disgusting. It looks like there are supposed to be effects working throughout the place but they don't work. The staff obviously don't care, either. The next door mirror maze is equally bad.

Don't do it. It is also insanely creepy and dark inside.

Old time family fun. There are plenty of other places to go do mini golf in Gatlinburg, but this one is a great choice if you’re into nostalgia. Just wish you got something for getting a hole in one on 18th hole other than a song.

We really enjoyed this attraction. We did the combo pass with the Amazing Mirror Maze. We all thought it was well worth it. We took a lot of cute pictures in there too. We did not do the 3-D glasses though. It is pretty dark in there though.

We had so much fun again playing golf here had a coupon for $5 a person that made this the cheapest thing we done in Gatlinburg. Wish more places and things to do in Gatlinburg would offer better coupons like this place.

If you have a rainy day like we did this is a fun indoor activity. It has black lights and neon colors everywhere. I did get a hole in one and that was exciting!

Don’t be fooled by the awesome outside decorations. We’ve seen this putt putt course for years while staying in Gatlinburg. We just never tried it. Yesterday while walking around we noticed they had a Summer Special. You could play a round for $5.95. Thank goodness that is all we paid per person or I would have asked for money back. It smells inside and it’s nothing but painted plywood inside. The walls are covered in a few cool scenes and there’s a few statues that’s circus themed but that’s it. The course itself is just straight lined courses with no challenge. Some holes are even stacked on top of each other where you are in another families way while trying to putt. It’s just poorly thought out. We will not return.
