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 the following options:
- For $7, you get one all-day unlimited pass, good for the haunted house, 3-D mini golf, and billiards (up to a $13 value).
- For $75, you get a birthday party for up to 30 people and a one-year pass for the birthday boy or girl (a $175 value).
Housed within a century-old building, The Haunted Mill hosts blood-splattered sets and demon-possessed passageways to create a soul-shaking spectacle designed to tickle spines of every age, phobia, and dietary preference. Explore dimly lit catacombs and butcher chambers, encountering brain-eating performers and chainsaw-wielding apparitions. Follow up frightful encounters with unlimited rounds of mini golf on one of Purple Planet's 3-D glow-in-the-dark courses, enhanced with black lights and psychedelic 3-D effects. Back in the realm of 2-D, billiards tables and a coin-operated game room await survivors.
With the birthday-party option, Purple Planet provides unlimited mini golf for up to 30 people, a private party room, and a refrigerator to keep cake and ice cream cold. The birthday boy or girl will also receive a one-year pass to the facility, a gift far greater than grandma's one-year pass to her mothball-themed playground.
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.
