The newly renovated facility also hosts a game room and specialty ice cream shop.

Putter's and Batter's Paradise, one of upstate New York’s largest mini-golf facilities, unfurls three challenging 18-hole courses that usher visitors along plush lawns, weathered rocks, and bright tulips. Each hole tests mini golfers with different obstacles such as towering castles, cascading waterfalls, and brightly painted animals, which guests can putt around or talk their way through should they bring their therapists. Group sizes are limited to four players so others don’t have to wait between putts and club-busting tantrums. After a day of swinging the iron dowel, guests can cool off with ice cream from the new onsite parlor, which slings soft-serve cones and sixteen flavors of hard ice cream that include classic vanilla and maple walnut.
Big Don is boredom's worst enemy. Located on a large chunk of land in Cicero, Big Don's Wild River Mini Golf wipes out monotony with nine different activities, including miniature golf on an 18-hole course that weaves through a wilderness setting. Groups can trade in their golf clubs for laser tag guns and charge into battle in a 40,000-square-foot arena, or attempt to navigate through the 5,000-square-foot Amaze'n Maze without help from GPS systems or cars that can smell their way home. Even treasure hunters can get their fix while panning for gems in the facility's mining sluice or digging through sand for keepsakes such as fossils, seashells, and exotic coins.
With iridescent miniature golf courses in malls throughout North America, Glowgolf adds elements of phosphorescent fun to shopping sessions. Courses contain sights such as light-defying blush corals, incandescent animals, and lush foliage reminiscent of the glowing trees on Neptune. Each pass is good for three 18-hole games, giving golfers ample opportunity to get familiar with each hole's obstacles. Equipment is available on the spot, so players won't have to carry around personal clubs or seek out a bioluminescent caddie.
Helmed by lifelong Cortland residents Stephen and Patricia Jordan, Shipwreck Golf Amusement Center regales fun-seeking guests of all abilities with three engaging attractions. The 18-hole, indoor black light mini-golf course takes putt-putters on a pilgrimage through a 450-foot labyrinth of smooth faux-greens framed by phosphorescent murals depicting underwater ruins and neon incarnations of each golfer’s embarrassing yearbook photos. Playful music is complemented by emerald corridors that snake through a pirate-themed pastiche of misting waterfalls, wooden ships, and lush palm trees. The scampering feet of kids age 2–10 can bounce, bound, and barrel roll across the cushy floor of the bounce houses that populate Shipwreck’s play area, which also includes a dress-up area, two play houses, and a play office where kids can jubilantly file tax forms.
