“Putt putt at it's finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

I have been going to Congo River for many many years, most recently with my wife on our honeymoon. I have many memories playing there. I have always loved the effort that went onto decorating the place. A plane crashed into the rock face, it's skeleton pilot dangling from his parachute, giant snakes...they really set the mood well. I would highly recommend this place!

“If you like mini golf go here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Mini golf is good for any age, and Congo River is no exception. Probably the best part about is that when you're walking around it feels like your in the jungle. You're provided with a scavenger hunt and if you find everything at the end they give you coupons for next time. I also like always seeing the alligators. You can feed them but I prefer to just feed the fish and turtles because it's less expensive and just as fun. Congo River is the type of place that you could go to more than once but because it's entirely outdoors, it can be pretty sweltering most of the year (even though it's mostly shaded).

“LOVED THIS !!! Family Fun !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Went here with 10 family members of all ages, from 7 to 64. Everyone loved it. Staff member helpful, got to feed the baby alligators (counted 21), played arcade games afterwards. Went on a very hot day but some of the holes are shaded or inside caves. This is well worth visiting but the sign out front is dark and hard to see -- be sure to put exact address in the GPS because the construction around this is horrific !!!

“Kind of cool”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

OK, so its a mini golf place. Its pretty cool but difficult to get to with the construction on 19. That isn't their fault but it sucks. The prices are pretty high as well. It is easier to go to a golf place and pay the same price without dealing with traffic.

“Mini Golf with Added Extras”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

Family fun mini golf for all ages. Beautiful course with water falls and other nice scenery. Each hole has an interesting fact about the Congo. Holes are fun and challenging but not so difficult that the younger ones can't enjoy playing too. You can put a twist on your game by spinning the wheel at each hole and playing that hole accordingly (use opposite end of club to hit ball,etc). They also have a scavenger hunt you do while playing golf for a chance to win extras. An arcade is located at the end of the course. In addition and for a small extra fee, you can feed or hold an alligator. Second game is half price and can be used at a later date. It had been years since I played mini golf and this was my sons first attempt at it. We all had fun! Staff was very friendly and helpful, too. Recommend to anyone wanting a place to play mini golf.
