Mini-golf, go-karts, slingshot, bumper boats, kiddie rides, arcade and more! The place is a bit older and could use an update but it gets the overall job done if you're just in the mood for a little family fun. The go-karts were the best!

A great place to take the young teenagers. We loved racing the go karts. Two different kinds of tracks plus arcades and putt putt. Get the armbands to have more options.

We went go Karting and had a great time. The $35 wristband is a good deal, we rode the vortex 3 times and formula racing 2 times. We had a blast and will be back.

We got rained out one day and stopped by here to play in the arcade. There are not a ton of games, but all the ones we played actually worked. It is nice when you don't have to worry about games stealing your tokens!!

Our daughter picked Emerald Falls because of the purple octopus! We had a fun time playing mini golf. The place could use some refurbishing, but nonetheless we had a good time.

The golf was pretty fun, the waterfall gave it a cool vibe. The cars were so fun to ride! Across the street are some gift shops to go to so make sure you check them out!

My kids loved the kiddie rides. Mini gold was also a hit but it's a bit run down and not super fancy. You get what you pay for. Go carting was packed at night but wide open then they open. We went 3 times with...More

There was a height marker near the entrance where you get the tickets and near the chain link waiting line. I believe it said 56'' to drive alone. 48'' to ride as passenger.
