When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway system, he envisioned a lawless, death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: for $8, you get the three-attraction pass to go-karts and mini golf (a $16 value) at Cool Crest in Independence. This Groupon is good for any combination of 18-hole rounds of mini golf and go-kart rides (for instance, two go-kart rides and one round of mini golf) and can be used across multiple visits.

Cool Crest's family entertainment funland uplifts the spirits of kids, adults, and downtrodden ghosts of Irish poets with its blissful, carefree attractions. Those that aspire to world-class putting status can hone their skills on Cool Crest's four mini-golf courses, each of which is dotted with enchanting gardens and vintage non-shark-related putt-putt hazards. Speedsters, meanwhile, can saddle up in an open-wheel go-kart and rev engines around the smooth track's tight turns and open straightaways. With the three-attraction pass, revelers can repeat the golf-tapping fun of a previous mini-golf round, or demand the best of three in go-kart races after being distracted by the sun transforming into a red dwarf.

Cool Crest has provided the Kansas City area with virtuous amusement and high-five-inducing thrills for more than 50 years. The park is open from 10 a.m. until midnight Sunday–Thursday and until 1 a.m. Friday–Saturday, so putting partiers can spend all night celebrating their birthday or their pet wombat's bachelor party.


Five Judy's Book reviewers give Cool Crest an average of four stars, and four Yelpers give it an average of four as well:

  • The courses are creatively done and a lot of fun for children and adults alike. The courses are always clean and well kept. – Nicolle H., Judy's Book
  • This is a very family oriented place. So go and enjoy a family night out. – nicole m., Judy's Book
  • Cool Crest is one of the highlights of Kansas City and has been around for over 50 years. It is charming and old school, and you have to wonder if some of the mechanical dragons and windmills have been around since it opened. – Brenna O., Yelp

Cool Crest

For more than 50 years, Cool Crest's owners have enchanted visitors with the fun park's abundance of family-friendly attractions. Flanked by emerald gardens, four 18-hole miniature golf courses lead participants to a bonus 19th hole, which rewards successful shots with a free game. Helpful staff enables drivers to hug the racetrack's corners while strapped into an open-wheel go-kart or, when in season, smack homers from batting cages hurling slow, medium, or fast pitches. Inside, a climbing playland and 7,000-square-foot arcade entertain guests throughout the year. To encourage kids to work as hard as they play, Cool Crest's staff rewards students brandishing recent report cards with up to 20 tokens, depending on their number of A's, B's, or the results from their PhD peer review. In between exhaustive sessions of play, a snack bar staff reenergizes guests with a slice or treat at Frankie's Pizzeria.
