Large Shark at a Minigolf

A large shark is at Kniess' Miniature Golf Course just north of Pittsburgh. The shark was added late last year and appears to be made of fiberglass. It is the latest addition to this mini-golf's growing collection of assorted things across its two courses. Every hole is themed, from bumper cars to a roulette wheel that tells your score. It's scenic as well, with a natural creek cutting across the property that has eaten many a ball over the years.
