For those not familiar with the Monster Golf franchise, they are a series of Halloween/Scary Monster themed indoor courses. Overall, the course is very appealing to the eye, with glow-in-the-dark attributes everywhere and a lot of fun sculptures and paintings on the walls. Like other Monster Golfs that we have played, the holes boarder each other and there is little room to stand off the hole. However, we did find that this one had a little more space than others we have played. We found this course to have many holes that were similar in design and how you played the hole. Either you went through the obstacle (of which there were only a handful) or you had to make a series of bank shots that all ended up feeling like the same shot by the time we were done. The holes tended to be quite long and while some were easy deuces, a score of three or above was more likely.
The atmosphere is where this course (like other Monster Golfs) excels. The house music station was always playing something fun and the creatures and paintings around the course are great. This particular venue also featured large dragon-like monster rising out of a pit in the back corner to the full height of the room. This course also featured a Mischief Golf-like spinner on hole #4 which had you play the hole in a different manner depending on where the spinner landed. It was a great little additional and would have been even more fun if there were a couple of other spinners scattered throughout the course. Overall the cost of the course was about average for a miniature golf and on a day when it was cloudy, hot and intermittently raining, it was a good place to spend an hour.
