Tee-Rex® 18 hole Minigolf

Includes:
Play 1 round on our educational 18 hole Tee-Rex minigolf course.

We are excited to offer mini golf to our field trip groups. You will learn about dinosaurs on our 22 educational signs as they putt through dinosaur bones, dino eggs, etc. The best part about playing Tee-Rex mini golf is that most groups can start playing at the same time by starting on different holes (larger groups may have a short wait period). There is minimal waiting time as groups of 6 players can start at each hole and rotate through the course until they have played all 18 holes. Playing mini golf takes most groups between 1 to 1.5 hours to compete, it is a self-paced activity and each group's actual play time may differ.

Youth up to 8th grade $5.50
9th grade - Adult $7.50
Staff (with ID) 1 free game per 9 students
Additional Staff $7.50 if playing*
*All Staff are required to be on the course when your group is playing. They are free if only supervising students. *Average playing time is 1 to 1.5 hours.
