Navigate the skill-taxing 18-hole course while steering clear of numerous rocks, water hazards, and sand traps, which golf balls covet for their naturally exfoliating properties. Before or after hitting the mini-links, guests also can head to the bank of 11 batting cages that collectively feature six baseball pitching machines, four slow-pitch softball machines, and one fast-pitch softball machine. The fully automatic system tosses baseballs at speeds from 40 to 85 mph, giving even seasoned baseballers cause for perspiration.
A pirate ship casts its shadow over the green corridors of Pirates? Cove mini golf course, setting the scene for golfers to enjoy a round of swashbuckling putt-putt. The 18-hole promenade also winds past geysers, waterfalls, and trickling streams.

Ben and Ari's accommodates competitors of all levels with a full arcade and pizza kitchen flanked by two 18-hole miniature-golf courses. Both courses mimic the terrain of their larger long-game counterparts, but eschew the giant windmills in favor of dips, bends, and wandering streams that swallow wayward golf balls. The fairways also wind around the centerpiece of a working waterfall, which trickles in the background of live bands during summer festivals and fundraisers. During the winter months, players stay warm in the glow of the arcade, which houses 45 nonviolent video games that allow kids to enjoy simulated road races. The arcade also encompasses a pair of scaled-down bowling alleys that make strikes and spares a feasible goal for pint-sized rollers.
Orchard Golf Center allows patrons to channel their inner Trevino on an illuminated outdoor miniature-golf course. Players can wind their way through 18 holes defended by mounds, curves, water hazards, and a confused hockey goalie. The miniature-golf course is well lit to accommodate evening bogey evaders and games played during total lunar eclipses. In addition to small-scale fairway festivities, Orchard Golf Center hosts a snack bar and a pro shop stocked with golf apparel and accouterments.
While watching the 2005 film Roll Bounce, moviegoers were probably too busy staring at roller-skating stars Nick Cannon and Bow Wow as they busted high-flying, acrobatic moves on the rink. With so much action on screen, audiences may not have had the chance to notice something slightly subtler—that the film was actually shot at Lynwood Roller Rink. Take one step inside the old-school facility, though, and the location scout’s pick seems almost too obvious: the rink's dedication to classic decor, such as bright-red neon lights and multiple disco balls, give it the feel of an untouched time capsule. But don’t let the vintage vibes fool you entirely—the rink also hosts new-school events, including Latin-inspired Zumba sessions on select weekday evenings.
