“Some Challenging Holes”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

A somewhat active attraction for pre-teens. They get to focus on putting accurately and being patient. The holes have interesting decor. An hour well spent; but egress can be a challenge given the construction on US 19.

“Nice scenery”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Because of construction and the way the streets run in Florida our gps didn't get us there without confusion. It's not in what I would consider the best location. The staff was friendly and I thought the scenery was nice. But a little pricey for me. You can print coupons off their website. I liked doing the scavenger hunt as we putt. There are baby gators, turtles and fish for your viewing when you enter. We paid extra money for our daughters to hold a gator. He slapped his tail more than once and my 8 year old got hit. We went during the week so it wasn't too busy. The arcades suck. We called ahead asking about arcades and was looking forward to playing some games. There's a small room with 10 or less arcades that's outdated. Some wasn't even working. If it wasn't for that I would have given it 5 stars.

“A Fun Visit”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

While vacationing and celebrating my son's 12th birthday, we found Congo river on trip advisor. What fun for our family of five (15, 12 and 8)!! He was able to feed the alligators before we played. The greens were fun and creative. The scavenger hunt kept the kids busy when they weren't golfing. It rained a little while we were there, but we were able to stay dry on most holes.

“Putt putt at it's finest”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

I have been going to Congo River for many many years, most recently with my wife on our honeymoon. I have many memories playing there. I have always loved the effort that went onto decorating the place. A plane crashed into the rock face, it's skeleton pilot dangling from his parachute, giant snakes...they really set the mood well. I would highly recommend this place!

“If you like mini golf go here”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Mini golf is good for any age, and Congo River is no exception. Probably the best part about is that when you're walking around it feels like your in the jungle. You're provided with a scavenger hunt and if you find everything at the end they give you coupons for next time. I also like always seeing the alligators. You can feed them but I prefer to just feed the fish and turtles because it's less expensive and just as fun. Congo River is the type of place that you could go to more than once but because it's entirely outdoors, it can be pretty sweltering most of the year (even though it's mostly shaded).
