“Lots of fun!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

My 5-year-old and I played one of the courses and just loved it. The course was clean and well maintained, with a fun theme and challenging enough course. We definitely will return.

“The usual but fun!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is your usual mini-golf experience. It is challenging enough and the course is neat. I loved the obstacles and course layouts. Although, none in my party required a handicap accomodation, this is the first course that I noticed that was accessible for wheelchairs. I also loved the hole in one at the 18th hole. It was totally doable unlike most courses where it's a miracle if you get a hole in one. 3 out of the 5 of us won a free game by getting a hole in one. Don't forget your coupon from the local coupon books. You will need it so you don't pass out over the price. For my husband and I WITH the coupon was over $20! Due to the 14% (I think) recreational activity sales tax. Keep looking through the coupon books - most coupons are only $1 off but one book has a $2 off coupon, good for your whole party.

“Two Great 18 hole courses”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We did both courses and liked them both. They were both about the same skill level and the courses were clean and well maintained. The volume on the speakers for the Davy Crockett figures and animatronics was low. Loud enough to hear, but not too loud as to be a distraction. Some of the animals needed some touch up painting, but other than that, it was great fun.

“Older course, but a shady place to play and beat the heat.”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This course is situated just outside of downtown Gatlinburg and is under the Ripley's umbrella of local attractions. There is ample parking on site. They offer two 18-hole courses and the adult cost is $10.99 for one course or $14.99 for both. Each course took about 30 minutes or so but there were only three or four other groups playing at the time. The course appeared to be an older course and the holes were not very challenging. Several times our golf balls got stuck inside tubes or cracks in the bumper. Several holes require going up and/or down several steps so wheelchair bound persons may end up missing several holes. There are small wooden benches at almost every hole and a lot of the holes are partially shaded so it was relatively cool on an otherwise sunny day. The down side to the shade is that there were also random fallen leaves on the green to contend with. There were also soda and water machines in several places throughout and they dispensed 20 oz bottles and cost $1.50. The 18th hole of each course also offered the chance to win a free game. Overall we enjoyed it, but felt that it was a little overpriced for the age of the course.

“Just okay...”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

After the wonderful experience we had at Old McDonald's course in Pigeon forge, we assumed this one would be just as good. Unfortunately, it wasn't. The course was just okay and was in an area away from town, which made it hard to get to with all the traffic on the parkway. The course was not that well maintained and the holes were not that challenging. All in all, it was not terrible, just not nearly as good as we had hoped.
