My husband, granddaughter (17) and I really enjoyed the 18 hole putt putt, especially since it was surrounded by beautiful trees, plants and water features. This type of recreation, being outdoors with walking, climbing of steps and time for lots of conversation, (unlike a movie theater), felt like a healthy experience, The business has a free app for your "smart" phone that tallies up the score for you, which was very cool. We always knew who was ahead. Tip Pricey at $12, less with AAA, military or senior discount, but you can get a return pass for 1/2 price that does not expire,

Family Fun for all ages. Nice scenery and fun course. At some holes you can spin a wheel and play the hole according to the spin (use opposite end to hit the ball, do not speak until last person hits it in, etc). They also have a scavenger hunt you can do while playing and at the end they give you a coupon. For an additional fee you can feed or hold an alligator. We really enjoyed the course and had fun playing. They stay open late so we went at night (9:30 pm), the temperature was perfect and the course was well lit.

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.

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 There's a small room with 10 or less arcades that's outdated.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.

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.
