The whole theme and atmosphere is well-done - you ride a train to the course, waterfalls, old-time storefronts, miners, etc. It's clean and easy to follow the course. We played the diamond course. My 4-star rating is because the holes are so average. Great mini-golf courses have difficult holes and creative set-ups. Most of these were straight shots with decor... More

The September night air was lovely and we decided to play a round of mini golf. What I really liked about this place was their system of assigning you a specific course. We noticed that everyone will small children were sent on one course and the adults and older children to the other. It was a nice after dinner walk.

We came here while staying in Corolla. The course was alot of fun. It seems a bit pricey for the easiness of the holes.

My husband and I played a round of gold on the Diamond course together. With no kids, we went through it fairly quickly, but the the courses are immaculate. They are kept up and very clean. The train ride up is fun and gives you a good view of both courses during the trip.

We enjoyed the train ride to the top of the course. The have two courses and one was closed on the night that we went. This made for long waits at each hole. Kinda took the fun out of it.

Fun place to play putt-putt but it is quite pricey, especially if you are a large party. The refreshments are expensive. We most likely will not be returning.

We had so much fun here from the mini golfing to the little train. I especially love the waterfall and all the little venues. Don't pass this up.

Best to go an hour before closing, the lines were smaller. They were open until 11pm before labor day. We were lucky to be picked for the gold course, as the pirate ship hole, a favorite of most, was on the course. Unfortunately you don't get to pick courses. The holes themselves were ok, the decorations around them were better... More

We had fun despite the heavy crowds. We did not get to choose which course we went on and were disappointed when we were assigned the diamond course that did not include going on the pirate ship. I was happy that the mine cart was working this time. In 2013 it wasn't running (possibly because it was the off-season) This... More
