It's just like any other mini golf place except it's lit up with black lights. Pretty fun and it's kinda dark in places but it doesn't seem to interfere with the game. My son had a good time.

“Fun afternoon!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Ok, well, it sort of ....rains....here. And sometimes it rains and is cold at the same time. This is a great time to read a book, but eventually that wears on the nerves also. The Shankz Black Light Mini Golf is a fun way to while away a couple of hours as an alternative to staying in! Holes are generally well-laid-out, and vary in difficulty. You can also finish off your stay with little slot cars, which I completely blew - my cars kept spinning off the track, but that was my lack of experience, which was obvious because others' cars nicely finished the courses....Worth a visit!

“Fun but fast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

It is fun to mini golf in the black lights, but the holes were nothing special, very easy. It is small so we were done with the holes super quick. It was a good thing to try out, and it is nice as an indoor activity in rainy Olympia

“It's putt putt plus! Pros and cons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

Firstly I happen to think putt putt golf is one of those awesome fun things to do anytime anywhere and I have a hard time passing up a chance to play a little. I think everyone needs a little putt putt in their life. That said I can be a bit of a critic of the ":courses" having played so many and having favorites.
Pros: I wasn't sure about the "back light" experience but it kicked it up a notch. Considering the place is small and stuck in a strip mall it makes a nice differences and there is a sense of getting lost in the experiences...pretty cool. It is a great way to spend some time on a rainy day and even if it is not it is a fun way to "play". The holes are "fun" so it can appeal to all ages.
Cons: I like a little more challenge in my putt putt and it is small. So it is both a pro and a con because it did not take long...I would have liked it to take a bit longer but sometimes you want just a bit of fun...this is the ticket. I suspect the little ones have a better time than us but we did have fun.
Bottom line - Who couldn't use a little putt putt? Come on...how long has it been? This was fun, different and a chance to do something a tad different.

“Fun Friday Night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

In rainy Washington, we were looking for something fun to do, and stumbled upon Shankz Black Light Mini Golf, we figured we would give it a try. It was super relaxed, fun, we had a great time. The mini golf course was laid-out nicely and walls provided privacy for each group; definitely fun for all ages.
