“Very basic, not worth the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2011

We took our kids to play miniature golf. (a family favorite, kids are 2 and 4) first of all the staff was not very friendly at all. The website listed one price but the price had gone up and they were unwilling to honor the website price, also the wanted to charge for our 2 year old who can barely hold a club. But worst of all as we were golfing a staff member came with a blower and actually blew the leaves off our hole and our balls too.
The golf course lacks imagination for the most part you get a strip of putting green with a rock placed in the center.
We had planned on driving the go carts but decided to pass based on our golfing experience.

“It really is the ultimate!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2010

We found The Ultimate Rush ride while driving around Reno. It is located on the perimeter of the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino's parking lot. Essentially what they do is strap you (and up to 2 other insane people) in a harness and hoist you up via cable so that you are dangling 180 feet in the air. At the top, "ground control" advises you to pull the rip cord when you're ready. What happens next is that you immediately plummet straight down until right before you hit bottom, you are swung out and over the parking lot/landing area. From there you swing back and forth until, mercifully, you are brought back down. My kids said this ride beat anything they have ever done anywhere, including the rides at Stratosphere in Las Vegas.

There is another ride at the same place called "The Sling Shot" where you are strapped in a steel cage and sent up via 4 bungee cords so that you experience 4 G's. We didn't ride this one, as not enough people showed up to operate both rides(!) And everyone wanted to ride The Ultimate Rush.

Highly recommend the Ultimate Rush . . . .
