Proper lighting allows football players to read plays off a wristband and basketball players to read one another’s tattoos of passages from Jamie Farr’s autobiography.

Birdie through the cosmos on Saturn 5’s 18-hole golf course, luminescent with moon silver, Neptune blue, and stellar scarlet and gold. Saturn 5 lowers the lights to intergalactic-black levels, forcing golfers to rely on glowing space murals, neon-trimmed holes, and burning newspapers attached to the ends of baseball bats. A multicolored obstacle course, Saturn 5’s 10’x40’ bounce house propels sock-clad youth through the air over inflated arches, around air-filled columns, and down a giant azure slide between rounds on the mini links. Upon breaching the event horizon of the 18th hole, replenish nutrients at Saturn 5’s bistro, where putt-putters can scarf down two bags of popcorn and congratulate winners by spraying them with two bottle’s worth of soda pop.. Located in the DeSoto Square Mall, Saturn 5’s 20,000-square-foot facility also hosts more than 70 arcade games and four billiard tables, which can be activated using the $20 game card.
Saturn 5’s intergalactic theme seeps into every corner of its 20,000-square-foot fun center, which encompasses an 18-hole mini-golf course illuminated by black lights, a laser-tag arena, a 400-square-foot bouncy obstacle course, an arcade with more than 70 games, and a billiards room. The indoor mini-golf course takes after its fresh-air counterparts with diminutive greens and obstacles, but it replaces the sun with black lights that illuminate holes lined in green, red, and blue. A rainbow of hues also embellishes the behemoth bounce house, where kids careen down slides and scramble around cushy pillars to get to meshed-in areas for jumping.
At the arcade, the perimeter of an air-hockey table glows a space-age green, and retro pinball machines exude a vintage air akin to the black-and-white makeup worn by ‘50s-era TV stars. In the billiards room, a 40-inch TV and an 80-inch projection screen are emblazoned with the day's games, which can be watched atop bar stools with snacks, beer, and wine from the concession bar.
