Owner description: Tame Flemish Giant rabbits roam free on our course; you compete against living obstacles on the greens! Native New Zealand birdlife and ring-necked doves make their homes in our trees and our resident Rainbow Lorikeet serenades you while you play. Waterfalls cascade into glistening ponds full of a variety of goldfish. Mini Golf at night is a whole new ball game! Our course transforms into a magical wonderland amidst thousands of twinkling lights. Fog machines, laser lights, bubbles and great music all add to the evening. Bring your own ‘fish n chips’ and treat the family to a special and unique night out. It’s the perfect spot for a romantic date, or a fun night out with your friends. Always wanted to drive the Bathurst racetrack? Now you can! Fitted out like a real race car, complete with full roll cage and race seats that move for more sensation, our V8 Simulator offers an incredibly realistic drive of the Mt. Panorama racetrack.

“Good for kids but not for adults”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

Fine but a little too easy and a very small course. Definitely just for the kids. It was more expensive than any other mini golf we’ve played in NZ at $14 per person which would be okay if it offered more but it doesn’t. Just too small and tightly packed – would be very difficult to play if crowded. I’m sure kids love it though, with the rabbits roaming loose around the course.
Better value for adults seeking a challenge is the poorly advertised Ballbusters Mini Putt course behind the Government Gardens in Rotorua.

“Wholesome fun for youngsters; lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

Feeling fed up at constantly having to pay out mega-bucks all day at the Skyline luge next door, where the queues were terrible, we popped in to the Rotorua mini golf for a short hour and had a throughly pleasant time. The prices were very reasonable and the lovely young lady on reception was very friendly and helpful to us all. There are some tame birds and three very large, fluffy rabbits that lollop around the course - which gives the place a slightly surreal, whacky, Alice in Wonderland feel - which the nine-year-old absolutely loved! I hope this place is locally run (unlike some of the other, bigger attractions in Rotorua). Personally, this was the best thing I did in the area - but I'm an old grouch who detests the way big business benefits from my leisure time!
