This is a curious place. It is surrounded by old run down buildings near the airport. It is both really neat and "cool" but also weird and rundown in places. $$$ wise, we spent $97 and stayed about an hour and half. In comparison, I spent $130 and walked the aquariums and watched a (BORING) IMAX film on the South Pacific.
Alright so I'll start with the cool factor. There is an indoor "bumper car" feature that seems really neat-o. It is essentially an indoor bumper boat game that has about 8 carts. They are quick and are very flashy and my kids had a blast. On the opposite side of the park are the coolest go carts I have ever ridden. They are all electric and have a speaker just over your left shoulder. It produces racing sounds to go along with your driving. If you get spun around, all the cars are notified that they are under "yellow flag" conditions and informed to slow down. They are quick and nimble and the best part is they have a TURBO button. I am assuming that because they are all electric that they are governed on their speed, but when you press the TURBO button your cart is given a 10 second boost of speed to get you past that nagging teena...er racer that has you pinned down in the corners.
The sad balance to these two very cool attractions is the golf. These holes were tired 25 years ago and the statues are literally peeling their paint off. If Sir Gooneys would invest in a total revamp (not just an update) of the course, this could be a completely well rounded family fun place.
Take your kids, have fun. Don't whine about the cost (it's just money) enjoy the time and Sir Gooney's will be a fond memory of your child's summer.
