Mini-golf is like regular golf in most respects, except the windmills are too small to take naps inside. Play through with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $12 for a round of mini-golf for two adults and five batting-cage tokens (a $24 value)
- $100 for a birthday party package #2 for up to 12 children (a $203.40 value)
Using their superior height and motor skills, two adults play through one of two 18-hole outdoor mini-golf courses, facing down such features such as rock outcroppings and a working waterfall. Afterwards, baseball or softball batting cages host home-run swings.
The party package celebrates the birthday child with a round on the outdoor mini-golf course for them and up to 11 guests, followed by a redemption-game bonanza fueled by 20 tokens good in the indoor arcade. Each guest feasts on two slices of pizza, a fountain drink, and ice cream, and the birthday child gets to take a spin of the Birthday Wheel, with the opportunity to win up to 500 tickets redeemable for prizes.
At any moment, visitors to Wilderness Falls might run into the resident moose. He isn’t grazing: Maddux the Moose, the family fun center’s fuzzy mascot, spends his time playing its two 18-hole, outdoor mini-golf courses and accepting high-fives and hugs from enthusiastic guests. Maddux isn’t the only fixture that may make guests feel as though they’ve wandered into the woods¬; the two mini-golf courses are pretty rugged themselves. The Bear Course, which hosts the annual Chicago Mini-Golf Championship, leads putters past a 35-foot waterfall, into a dark cave, and across creaking wooden walkways, just like the race all of Harrison Ford’s clones run to determine which one will get to play Indiana Jones. Alternatively, the Eagle Course leads players around winding rivers and on a climb to the top of a 40-foot mountain of rock.
Of course, it’s not all roughing it. In the middle of the greens sits the tented arena that holds Wilderness Falls’ batting cages, including six baseball cages and three softball cages. An arcade lights up the indoor space with the glowing screens of video games, and party rooms hold birthday and team celebrations.
