Southern Adventures Reviews
This review is based on my last time at Southern Adventures, which was around July of last year. Since then, the location has closed due to the owners getting old and selling the property, at least from what I've gathered from a Reddit post about the place. Overall I've grown up going to Southern Adventures primarily for the putt-putt golf and the go-karts, which are some of the most fun for the area it's at! The arcade is fun too, with several games netting big wins easily. My closest thing to an issue with this place was that I got a second degree burn on the bottom of my foot, but that was primarily my fault for standing on the blazing hot concrete by the slides while waiting for my cousin. It took about 2 weeks to recover, but it still didn't sour my memories or experience. Rest in peace Southern Adventures, you will be missed dearly.
We have been going to Southern Adventures for years now. We had birthday parties there when the kids were younger. Now, as teens, they like to hang out with friends there. The most exciting part for me is seeing the rides that I grew up with at Braham Springs Park that now sit behind Southern Adventures.
