In the kitchen at Mario’s Pizza, chefs heap cheese, steak, and sun-dried tomatoes onto oversize New York–style and sicilian pizza crusts. A white pizza covered in ricotta cheese, fresh garlic, and mozzarella reminds taste buds of eating a delicious snowman, and comes in sizes ranging from 10 inches to as large as 19 inches. Baked pasta and sandwiches, such as a philly steak or veal parmigiana, round out the menu.

At the main attraction of Putt-Putt Fun Center's assortment of family-friendly activities, golfers of all ages hone their swings on an 18-hole miniature golf course, where flowers and trees surround the verdant fairways and Putt-Putt's signature metal rails.

Birthday party packages nourish revelry with fizzing sodas and Domino’s pizza, inspiring kids to finally learn science by peering at mini golf balls through the microscope instead of constantly hiding them in the course's holes.
