Even the most mundane objects, such as play dough, plastic sticks, and pet birds, become otherworldly and amusing when given the glow-in-the-dark treatment. Apply the fluorescent philosophy with today's Groupon: for $11, you get two glow necklaces and either two rounds of 18-hole mini golf, or one round of golf and one round of air cannon at Shankz Black Light Miniature Golf (up to a $20.57 value). This Groupon is redeemable at either of Shankz's two locations.
Shankz's black-lit courses guide short gamers and their glowing balls through a combined 24,000 square feet of magical mermaids, jungle scenes, and dinosaurs that populate the 18 holes of phosphor-filled fun. You can also escape daylight with the Balladium ball-blaster system at the Atascocita loaction or the Ballaster air cannon challenge at the Woodlands location. Like laser tag if laser tag were played with air cannons instead of hair-removal lasers, teams score points by hitting censored targets, or in the case of Ballaster, by shooting spongy balls into tiki targets. Hit the arcade for post-projectile antics while using your glow necklaces as a means of identification.
Although Shankz Black Light Miniature Golf sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Shankz Black Light Miniature Golf
Shankz Black Light Miniature Golf has two locations that encompass 18 holes apiece, with each course set aglow in neon and covered with exotic creatures. As they travel through the indoor facilities, each putter must navigate around wrecked pirate ships, shoot between stubby dinosaur legs, and wrest their clubs from the mouths of tigers in what typically amounts to a 35- to 60-minute round of golf. To accentuate the course's glowing artwork and scenery, golfers can opt to put on a pair of 3-D glasses. Beyond the neon greens, Shankz also features the Balladium and Ballaster game rooms, in which competitors fire Nerf balls from air cannons at targets and at each other to score points and ward off encroaching Nerf army tanks.
