We were in Melbourne visiting family and my kids love playing mini golf on vacation. This was the worst mini golf ever, without exaggeration. It was expensive at about $8 each, and they charged full price for my 4 year old who can barely operate the club so I thought that was not right. This is the kind of place that was probably beautiful many years ago under what I presume was a previous owner. Now they are milking the property - collecting $8 a pop and putting absolutely nothing into maintenance. All former water hazards are now filled with rocks, nothing is mulched, just dirt, all metal is rusty and all the wood is splintery. A lot of the wood around the holes is broken so watch your kids. The worst part is the astroturf. It is all torn up and bunched up on multiple holes. Forget about hole in ones and twos. Go elsewhere. I never write reviews but I felt compelled here. Save your money. Go elsewhere. I should have taken it as a bad sign when I had to sign a waiver to play mini golf.

We apologize for you experience on the golf course. We recently replaced all turf on the course with premium turf and put new holes in. We also hired new landscapers who took care of the weeds and put new mulch out. It looks like a whole new course now.

Very small park. Not much to do. Go carts are bumpy and the courses are very short. Mini golf is not well kept...the green is torn throughout the course. Not very challenging at all. Took only 10-15 minutes to finish the entire course (18 holes). The lazer tag room was very hot...felt like the heater was blasting. They have signs throughout the park for food and snacks, but the restaurant did not even open (on a Tuesday night). We found a deal on their website for half-priced tickets, but honestly it wasn't even worth that.

We have made a lot of changes to the park since your visit. The mini golf turf has been replaced throughout the course and the AC condenser for the lazer tag area has been replaced. The restaurant is under new owners now. They make incredible food and are open when the park is open.

We had a great time with the family here. My son was able to enjoy the go carts, while my daughter had fun with the video games. My husband enjoyed the batting cages, even though he really needed help! (sorry hun!)

Used the two for one coupon and it was still too much. Getting a decent go-cart is hit or miss and one was leaking gas which caused me to smell like gas the rest of the day. The batting cage was ok but the games in the game room are way too expensive. The place is definitely past its prime and really needs some attention.
