Let me start by saying that the attractions are fun, even for an older crowd (laser tag was a great addition).

However, they should not have brought in alligators. Their barren cement pond was disgusting and pathetic. They have no stimulation, they just sit there staring at the wall, day in and day out. Except when kids come to harass or feed them. Cruel, uneducated children throw things at them and try to hang them or pull them out of the pond with the "fishing rods" provided. Even if they use the feeding rods properly, they are made in such a way that the metal fasteners rip into the gators' mouths every time they latch on to eat.

It's incredibly inhumane and sickening to think that this is how we educate our children- wild animals should not be used as a cruel source of entertainment. Get rid of the pit of despair and you'll go back to being a 5 star entertainment center.

Mini golf is cute, small but you have 2 courses to choose from. The go-cart track is cool and the batting cages are nice. Bring your lunch because food and drink is expensive. Otherwise a nice family outing.

This place has changed ownership many times over the years, but with all the changes one thing still remains the same, its really cool. The have a miniature golf course thats on the small side, but the themes they have set up at each hole are really profuse and lavish. It makes it so fun for the younger set. They also have added some really great activities for family to do together as well. They have go-cart racing, batting cages, video games, bumper cars, a 30 foot slide and even a driving range. And believe it or not there are actual live alligators that you can feed (with special purchased food) similar to the way youd fish, go early to make sure you catch them hungry, its so interesting to watch them eat.

My kids love to go here and play play play.
It is a great place for them to go get the beans out. BUt I dont care for the crowdedness and messiness of it all.
BUt it is worth it for the kids.
