As December 23, 2012, approaches, many Americans eagerly await the moment when Hades will emerge from the Underworld to recklessly devour raw egg. Until then, experience man-made terror with today's Groupon to The Haunted Mill and Purple Planet 3-D Mini Golf in Belmont. Choose between two options:
- For $10, you get one all-day admission pass (up to a $21 value).
- For $25, you get a season pass (a $50 value).
Each option entitles you to unlimited 3-D glow-in-the-dark mini golf at either establishment, coffin rides, a haunted-house tour, and unlimited billiards. Kids under 5 are admitted free, and all-day passes for children under 10 are $7. The creaky doors open every Friday through Sunday, with extended summer hours.
Housed within a century-old building, The Haunted Mill stirs up ghouls, monsters, movie effects, and other soul-shaking spectacles. From dimly lit catacombs to vegetarian-vexing butcher quarters, the mill has something spine-tickling for every age, phobia, and dietary preference. Explore the far reaches of the fear factory and greet the living, breathing, and mostly bleeding performers. Along the way, conduct a field study for mortuary-sciences school with a jaunt on the coffin ride, or warm up your phantom pendulum to destroy dimpled yet demonic golf balls.
Follow up frightful encounters with unlimited rounds of mini golf on Purple Planet's 3-D glow-in-the-dark course. Dressed up with tombstones, mummies, and witches, the course combines the thrills of sinking a hole-in-one with the chills of getting two holes in the neck from unsportsmanlike Draculas. Because the course is black-lit and 3-D, all active golfers will get a double dose of ghastly goodness and a triple dose of dimensional perspective.
Though Purple Planet and The Haunted Mill sometimes offer discounted prices online and have off-season pricing available, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Haunted Mill
An abundant number of recreational activities fill the space at Purple Planet 3-D Mini Golf. With black lights illuminating patches of neon paints, the indoor and always air-conditioned cooled mini-golf course bends the mind with challenging greens and mind-bending visuals such as aliens and floating satellites. As they navigate the course’s vortex tunnel and fog-filled corridors, golfers wear 3-D glasses, making obstacles appear to pop out and transforming every hole into an even deeper hole. Purple Planet visitors can also hone their billiards skills with games of pool or try their hand at the games at an on-site arcade.
