Today’s Groupon monster mashes the phosphorescence of glow-in-the-dark paint with the effervescence of playing golf inside a haunted house: for $20, you get six rounds of mini golf at Monster Mini Golf. Use all six passes yourself, bring your family, or share them with friends you met online before meeting each other to play a best of seven series of Whodunit, The Board Game. As an added bonus, you'll get 1,000 complimentary prize redemption tickets, which you normally must be skilled at arcade games to get. Spend them all right away or add them to your collection of hard-earned tickets and put them toward larger prizes.
The 18 holes at Monster Mini Golf's Avon location contain enough ghastly geometric challenges to make the course interesting for all ages. Navigate your illuminated golf ball past horrible goblins, disgruntled dark forest trees, impolite specters, and sleeping ogres—or just stand in awe at the 3D spectacle.
Bring your family to celebrate your family blog about kittens and soup, or bring the kids you babysit so that they take a break from the New Super Mario Bros. on Wii. Monster Mini Golf features a sonic backdrop of in-house music, bizarre giveaways, and arcade games that spit tickets for prizes at skilled players. Get your six mini-golf games in back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back to become the mad master scientist of the course, or split your Groupon over repeat visits.
Most Monster Mini Golfers have yet to write online reviews, but Metromix finds the Avon location's homage to Hoosier landmarks amusing:
- The 10,000-square-foot mini golf course and arcade with party rooms has gotten off to a frightfully good start....there's a glowing cartoon likeness of Indianapolis-born late-night comedian Dave Letterman joking with former Vice President Dan Quayle, another Hoosier. Because this is in the west metro area, there also are plenty of glowing images of race cars -- reminiscent of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. – Bruce C. Smith, Metromix
