“No value”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Not much value for money. Limited games and very boring.
Very expensive for the food and coffee was cold.

“Great mini golf circuit and antique carousal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

This is the best mini golf course we have played on with goldfish ponds and a cute little train travelling through it.

“Fun for kids but pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

My grandchildren love it there. I found it very chaotic and expensive. I think if you buy tickets in advance it is probably cheaper

“Great for the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Checked the website for the attraction, times and prices and ventured in for a Monday session. Coming from Victoria though, stupid misaligned school holidays. S.A school holidays started the following week. So the 9 am opening with 2 hours unlimited play wasn't available.
Oh well, went back at 10 am and did the power hour max. 100 minutes unlimited play for $48 + $2 card fee.
Quite a bit to do and my boy got more than his money worth on the arcade games as well as a few goes on the dodgems, mini golf and more arcade games.
Too cold for the water slides or squirty boats but they are there for warmer days visits.
Staff were very helpful with the only downside really being the mixup with school holiday dates and the cost of parking nearby at $2.90 per hour. Lots close by to see also and although we took lunch there is a kiosk for hot food which was comparably priced for an arcade centre.
My lad of 11 thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hours there.
