Shankz Black Light Miniature Golf encompass 18 holes set aglow in neon and covered with exotic creatures. As they travel through the indoor facility, each glowing putter must navigate around a wrecked pirate ship, shoot between stubby dinosaur legs, and wrest their clubs from the mouths of alligators in what typically amounts to a 40- to 60-minute-plus round of golf. To accentuate glowing balls, scorecards, and the course's artwork and scenery, which include underwater, jungle, and dinosaur themes, golfers can opt to put on a pair of 3-D glasses for an additional fee. Besides welcoming families, friends, and dates, Shankz is able to host birthday parties, team-building, and other group activities. Beyond the neon greens, Shankz also features the Ballaster air cannon system, in which competitors fire Nerf balls from air cannons at targets and at each other to score points and ward off encroaching Nerf army tanks.
