Almost everything glows at Rascal's Family Fun Center—the pirate-themed mini-golf obstacles, the bowling pins on the four-lane alley, and the smiles of the children at play. Their grins come from the center's sheer range of activities, including a Lazy Frenzy challenge, an Indiana Jones-like laser-tag arena, and a full redemption arcade, all illuminated under funky black lights. An onsite cafe fuels the fun during play sessions or parties.
Named America's third most difficult golf course by Golf Digest, Ko'olau Golf Club's Dick Nugent–designed course snakes through the crags of the picturesque, 2,000-foot Ko'olau Ridge mountain range, where duffers contend with dramatic elevation changes and the thick vegetation of the tropical jungle. The breathtaking course spans 5,102 yards from the forward tees and 7,310 yards from the back tees, with two sets in between, and its length is compounded by a series of deep ravines, massive sand bunkers, and driver-stealing Pacific loons. After enduring 17 intricate holes, golfers must steel themselves for the dramatic, par 4 18th, where two forced carries and 22 sand bunkers may turn even the boldest of wedge-wielding knights into a quivering lickspittle. Though the formidable seashore paspalum monolith may mangle scorecards, its sweeping, tropical vistas and cascading waterfalls make the course a beautiful and enjoyable haunt for all.
Minigolf2u delivers miniature-golf courses to special events ranging from birthday parties to corporate outings and lets attendees battle it out putt for putt. Individual holes range from 8 to 15 feet and often incorporate white-shaded regions for sand bunkers, blue regions for water, and other hazards such as sugar-loaded children. Mini-golf players also can upgrade the courses to incorporate holes with unique themes, such as zoo, marine, or carnival.
