My kids love the outdoor laser tag and we all enjoy the mini golf. Good family fun and coupons are always in the Clipper to save you some $.

This is a very nice adventure golf course, especially since we don't have any around these parts! Laser tag is excellent as well. A couple of the other activities are lame and pricing is a bit high, but overall a good experienceMore

Very pricy for what you get. Every attraction is extra, no package deals. Golf was ok, nothing extraordinary. Treasure dig in the sand was just ok too. Had to leave after two attractions as it was expensive. Not someplace I would rush back to see.More
