This place didn't look like much, but we had a lot of fun for the money we paid. We paid $30 for 2 adults and enjoyed 3 different forms of entertainment. We rode the go-carts & number boats and the 18 hole mini golf. The...More

The prices are a bit much but overall they have packages to fit every age. The go carts are a bit rough but still fun. The staff is pretty lethargic with little personality. However, we had a group with teenagers, adults, and young children and...More

Went here to ride go carts. Spiral track is a pretty rough ride because of the plank construction. Cars have variable speeds and some are much faster than others. The faster track was pretty fun and a much smoother ride. Again, some cars were faster...More
