We wanted to bring my father-in-law to Cooters as he's a big Dukes of Hazzards fan. We lucked out and found a Group on coupon for $22 (a $45 value) which included a round of indoor putt putt golf, indoor go karts, and a picture with the General Lee car. My expectations were low, but even the teenagers had a great time doing everything. The highlight was the go karts, which look like mini versions of cars in the show. The track is small but slick. The adult and senior males loved it too! An extra bonus was the appearance of Cletus (Rick Hurst) who signed autographs, sold pictures, and was very personable and friendly. It was the highlight of my fiat her in laws trip. The place is stocked full,of memorabilia and photos. The fit shop was also well-stocked. One big tip. Buy your tickets for go karts first and get your reservations I early as the wait was long. This is a good place for families needing an indoor activity, and for anyone who is a Dukes fan. It's not handicapped accessible. They sell hot cocoa for $1.50 as well.

My family of 4 had a blast at this place. We researched places to visit on our trip here and planned on going to Cooters. We were excited when we found the groupon and bought it. We knew from reviews that it was a bit run down but they are priced accordingly. Their prices are lower then those activities would cost you at a "fancy" place in downtown. It was a fun place and we enjoyed our time there. Our only real suggestion is they beef up the museum with more Dukes memorabilia.

They have a lot of Dukes of Hazzard items to see and some to buy at way above average prices. We didn't do the go carts, we just looked around.

We love this place!! My boys and I spent hours here playing miniature golf and riding go karts. Very affordable for the family compared to the other places in town. We will definitely be back!!

You may appreciate this place if you're a diehard Dukes Of Hazzard fan because merchandise is available and a few cool old behind the scenes type pictures. However, DO NOT waste your money on the mini golf. It's hidden upstairs so you pay before you see it. The first few holes have nothing to do with Dukes Of Hazzard and there is trash and fake dusty flowers thrown about. Then you reach a room with holes in the ceiling, cheap posters on the walls and someone had been staining the wood upstairs and left all the stuff out so it smelled terrible! This place needs a big makeover! I was very disappointed and will not be going back.
