We went as a family and very pleasantly surprised. Very clean and very reasonable. We had 18holes of golf and the kids had fun on the bumper cars. Ice creams at the end, wow, fantastic flavours and not overpriced. Staff very friendly.

We went here for my birthday which was on a Wednesday. The mini golf course was decent and pretty well maintained. However the best feature was the laser tag bumper cars. We had a blast on them! When you get shot your car spins in...More
