“Hits and Misses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

This was an interesting place. It was great seeing the Dukes merchandise and so much attention to the show. But the go-carts and golf felt thrown in for no apparent reason. For one thing, the cars are way overpowered for the extremely small track It would have been better to have some sort of interactive exhibit or something.

We enjoyed our visit and yes it is worth the money, but they could have done much more.

“Great indoor fun for a rainy day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a great place for any fan of The Dukes of Hazzard. I personally never got into the show, so the novelty of the vast collection of memorabilia in their free museum was a little lost on me. However, it was still interesting. The family pack is a good value @ $45- it provides you with slick track passes for upto 5, 5 mini golf passes & a photo inside the General Lee. All of this is indoors- which is great way to beat the heat or dodge the raindrops! Indoor mini golf was really enjoyable... no bugs to worry about & the staff was super friendly!

“disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

First off, we didn't do the golf or go karts so maybe that is why there are so many high reviews. A lot of merchandise for sale. I guess I was expecting more.

“Fun for the money we paid”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

This is totally worth it if you have deal from half off depot or Groupon. The go cart track is a smallish oval, but the go carts really go! They staff doesn't tell at you if you soon or bump cars accidentally. The mini golf is simple in decor, no fancy windmills or anything but we had fun. The museum is pretty much a glorified Tshirt shop. There are cool pics from Dukes and some memorabilia in the mini golf area. Of course, they have the General Lee. It's good to do on a rainy day since it's all indoors and we didn't have to wait at all. Just adjust your expectations accordingly.
