My boys ages 15 and 13 had a great time at the Amusement Center! We spent a few hours here while my daughter was at orientation at SUNY Cortland. The owner was really friendly. They loved the paint ball and so did I. We plan on visiting again this fall.

For Cortland County this is has tons to offer. But, every time I go I leave feeling uncomfortable and vow that next time will be better. This past time I noticed that the outdoor greens were very worn and needed to be replaced. However, they added the longest golf hole ever. The long hole is a nice idea, but overall maintenance of the course is more important. There are several signs posted about throwing rocks and the $5800 to replace the pump because of the rocks. A sign saying no throwing rocks would be enough. Instead the focus is on the cost and what the owners had to pay for it. I think what makes the signs sad is that there are so many other items that need updating from normal wear and tear. Even the loop on the new longest hole needs painting. In the owners defense, should they really need a sign explaining why throwing rocks into fake waterscape areas is wrong? But, I don't need to know their expenses. I either pay the price or don't. I don't plan on going back anytime soon.

You are correct about the carpet. We are installing our new carpet between September 10 and 15 of this year. We scheduled a total install in the spring but it never got dry enough or warm enough before the season to install.

Most of our signs are new. We actually replaced some more today. The loop gets painted every year. Maybe we should try to put something other than paint on it. Unfortunately some of our customers do need to be told not to throw rocks in the pond. We cut off the small print about the cost. Point taken.

We would love to have you talk to us personally about your discomfort with us before you give up on us. Thanks for your insights.

Took my grandsons, ages 6 and 5. Minigolf, paintball targets, bounce house and treasure hunts were all great. Friendly service, very family oriented. I'd say prices were right in line with other area attractions...highly recommend!

Reasonable charges, for both food and play. The kids were able to let off some energy in the small bounce attraction and then half of our party did outside Mini Golf and half stayed inside for Glow in the dark golf. Both experiences were positive. The kids had fun, as did the adults, the attractions were clean and the snack food wad reasonably priced.
