I really like this place. The mini golf is very interactive and fun. However, I wish it would be way more fun if there were more than 18 holes because time goes by really quick. The structures are so fun to golf with. It's a...More

I do not go here anymore- they would not allow SUPERVISED young children (height restriction), nor take a credit card last time I went.

This place takes itself way too seriously and is downright hostile towards families/children. Owner tried to get us to go to a different place, even though Par-King was literally empty. It somehow is trying to make mini golf something for serious golfers. Are you kidding...More

I absolutely love this course. Honestly, the design is beyond creative and really provides you with a sense of what themed mini golf courses should be. The theming and mechanical components play in with every single shot you take, especially on holes like the "Roller...More
