- Wholesome fun for all family members -- and unbelievable artwork throughout the 18-hole course. A good place for a birthday party too with slot car track and arcade games too! Shouldn't miss this place. – happykat9, CityVoter
- We laughed at ourselves and each other as we tried to putt the neon balls into the neon wholes [sic] with the black light golf while wearing the 3-D glasses. The 3-D painting was so creative it was amazing to look at along our putt-putt journey. – Karen H., CityVoter
- The owner treats every customer like family and it's a fun place for all ages! I'm 26 and will go with my friends but also take my nephew who's 12. Love it! – Sara B., CityVoter
