I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Monster Mini Golf (Review with Giveaway)


What: Monster Golf

Where: 314 US Highway 9
             Marlboro, NJ
            (also in various other locations around the country)

Who: 5 and up

Our view: If you are looking for a unique experience playing miniature golf this is a great place to go. Instead of playing golf out in the sunshine with windmills, castles and other cutesy themed holes, here you will play indoors with glow-in-the-dark balls and monster themed holes. However, there is much more to Monster Golf than just golf. There are also a ton of video and other games to play as well. You can play games to win tickets and redeem them for prices. State of the art machines make it easy to find out the balance on your game card, add value to your game card and/or trade in your tickets.There are also various trendy and/or monster related items for sale. Despite the darkness of the venue, you feel welcome from the moment you step inside. We especially loved the periodic contests run throughout the day, such as, a free pass for a future visit to anyone with an orange golf ball or free prize tickets to anyone dancing to the music. We appreciated that the music that played throughout our visit was loud enough to be heard and provide a nice background without being so loud that we had to scream to hear each other. There are various party packages available for both kids and adults including private party packages where the venue is closed to everyone but party guests. There is plenty of seating in the two party rooms although, they did look like they could be a bit of a tight squeeze. That did not seem to stop anybody who was attending the two parties going the day we were visiting from having a great time, however. We would not recommend Monster Golf for very young children or any one with an extreme fear of the dark and/or of monsters. However, the youngest member of our family who is generally easily scared had a great time and was only afraid of the monster decor at one hole and that was because that one actually moved and it startled her. Monster Golf is currently available in approximately 30 locations in approximately 15 states.
