Best Miniature Golf - 2004
Tee Time Family Fun Center
You're assaying your first shot on the tenth hole at Tee Time Family Fun Center. There's a giant alligator behind you and lions, tigers and bears hidden in the jungle terrain all around. But that's not the reason you're panicking. Here, on the tenth hole, you realize the true hazards of this unconventional course are not the sand traps, streams, waterfalls, tunnels and bridges you must navigate. No, if your stroke veers too far to the right, you're going to be playing Frogger on Interstate 55 to retrieve your ball. If you whack your shot too hard straight ahead, it might end up on the Burlington Northern train passing by on its way to Kansas. The real-life obstacles, plus all the quirky ground rules, make this course more challenging than spelling Shinnecock Hills. After you've beaten Hale Irwin's low score, check out the indoor batting cages, video arcade, bumper boats, go-carts and 3-D black-light maze.
