Par-King Miniature Golf

48" minimum height limit to play or even enter the golf course. Anyone shorter than that in your party cannot enter even just to watch others play. [Nerissa Kuebrich, 03/23/2013]


Par-King Castle.

Par-King Miniature Golf

Very cool old-style miniature golf. It's got figures that were built in the 50's. One of the pieces is a wooden roller coaster that your golf ball rides down on its way to the hole! Tons of mechanical stuff at this place. On one hole the green actually moves -- you stand on a motorized platform while hitting your ball.

They used to have a train ride and there is an aging train station built in the '70s adjacent to the mini golf.
