Monster Mini Golf is a scary good time

I love mini-golf to death. It is my game. I will own you and then win a free game on the last hole to do it all over again. I also love activities that a 10-year-old would like. So, naturally, I couldn’t wait to go to Monster Mini Golf — a mini-golf course that caters specifically to children.

The course has some really fun obstacles that can even trick some old-timers. (Colleen Murphy / Features Editor)

Monster Mini Golf is fun for all ages. The first time I went to Monster Mini Golf was with my four cousins. It was their birthday present to me. I had such a good time that the second time I went, I dragged my mom along. I’m considering the next time I go I will bring an actual friend, but we’ll see. Though I have gone with people of all ages, it is definitely a place geared toward children. So, if you do not like children, stop reading — this is not the place for you.

When you enter the building, all the sunlight immediately disappears and you step into a dark, neon-lit room full of screaming children at a birthday party. After walking past the arcade area and having your eyes adjust to the sudden darkness is when the real fun begins, because that’s when you see the golf course.
Now, it does look quite uneventful just from looking at it. There are no hills, no waterfalls. However, most of the holes are quite challenging, and playing in a darkened room is a cool twist on the game that is typically played in sunshine. At one hole, the player spins a wheel to see what obstacle will be added to the course, for example, having your opponent stand on the green.

If you decide to enter the (friendly) monster-themed building, make sure to look online for coupons. It costs $9 to play for an adult, but both times I went, the cashier took a coupon that was not even for that particular location. The company’s website also offers several specials, including Tuesdays being Couples Day where a couple can play for just $10.

Monster Mini Golf sure is a different experience. The course is fun, the atmosphere is exciting and the staff is friendly. Plus, being in the dark and seeing the whites on your clothes light up is always cool. The spins on the traditional obstacles make up for the lack of super-thrilling obstacles. However, if there is a birthday party going on, the kids can crowd the building, but that should be expected at a place like this.
