Our boys, ages 6-15, enjoyed the Cove but it is very expensive. We got the Pizza Hut deal, which wasn't too bad. Go Carts and bumper boats were fun. The mini golf was flooded in some areas from previous night's rain.More

A nice place, not alot to do but not affordable to larger families. Was nice to have things for both the younger (5) and the older age groups (teens) Tickets add up in a hurry at 5.00 per ticket Park and bathrooms were clean!More

The kids loved it! We loved it! and the people we spoke to during the day loved it! Rides were long - and inexpensive ($5 per kid - 5 minutes minimum length!) Example: Bumper boats: $5.00, ride lasted 5 minutes, no charge for younger passengers!...More

All the employees are miserable russians that hardly speak English! The restrooms are gross, old and in need of repair. The mini golf course looks like it hasn't seen ANY maintenance in more than a few years, the weeds are as tall as I am,...More

Mini-golf provided a good hour of fun. Go-Karts were nice. Bumper Boats looked fun...too chilly for us to go on them when we were there. Arcade was small, but fun for rainy days.

I was really disappointed in this place. The tickets are $5 for one ride, but it's 4 minutes long. For a family of 4 you are spending $20 on a 4 minute ride. They go-carts and bumper cars are nothing to write home about and...More

The kids love the go-carts!!! We try to go during less busy times of the day. Older kids tend to run up and down the walk-way so watch your little ones so that they do not get knocked over.
