  • The waterfall and water features are amazing! The felt can use some updating, but it’s really a very fun course. It’s challenging enough to make it interesting for older players, but easy enough that....  more »
  • Nice little arcade and golf range. Food is served on site. It's a little pricey but if it's a rainy day out, better than sitting in the hotel. They also have a bowling alley.
  • Just went for the go-carts, but the track and carts were both great. The track is a great layout, you get a decent number of laps, and the price is not too terribly bad. One of my favorite stops in the area!
