  • Kids love this place but so do the adults. We all enjoyed the golf. I had my grandchildren 8 and 10 and they thought Grandma had found the best place. There icecream is really good and we enjoyed some...  more »
  • In my opinion it is too expensive for a family event, the Parksville Beach and Riverside Resort and Campground which the latter has a waterslide and mini golf is way better. 
  • Great place to visit with RV. Reasonably priced - certainly have entertainment if you like mini golf, water bumper boats and all kinds of machine games. Friendly and courteous. Pets allowed in RV Park...  more »

  • The Double Scoop Impasse I guess I could talk about the colourful, family-friendly attractions, which is what drew in our group of 8 adults and 4 kids in the first place, but unfortunately, the entire visit was marred by a display of atrocious customer service on the part of the man and woman running/managing the establishment. Now, let's discuss ice cream... A single scoop was $3.50, a double scoop was $4.00. My sister ordered a double scoop for two people to share, and asked for an extra cone - not an unreasonable request by any stretch, at least not in our opinion. Here was the lady's response, complete with raised eyebrows and a tone reminiscent of a headmistress reprimanding an unruly student: "No, you have to pay for two single scoops - you're trying to get two ice creams for the price of one. I just did this for you, and I'm not doing it again." Please indulge me as I break down and pick apart her response: "No, you have to pay for two single scoops - you're trying to get two ice creams for the price of one" - OK, I get that you're a business, and that you're out to make a profit. But we've already brought you our business; we're virtually your only customers on an otherwise slow day, and we've already spent a decent chunk of money on your attractions. Would it really hurt you to say yes to this tiny request, just to keep your customers happy? Her reasoning: "I have to charge you what it costs me" Hmmmm.... OK - I'll leave that one to you readers. Now regardless, even if you do insist on having a split charge or no-sharing policy, as some places do, there are nicer ways of saying it. The moment I heard the belittling tone in her voice directed at a member of my family, I knew I would have words to say. "I just did this for you, and I'm not doing it again" - She was confusing this sister with my other sister, despite the fact that they look nothing alike. Both Asian women, yes, but the common features end there. I WILL play the race card here, much as I hate doing it. I guess, to the eyes of this person, we are all interchangeable lookalikes, worth only what we're willing to spend. After an increasingly heated exchange that did nothing to break the impasse, my sister, the gentle, non-confrontational soul that she is, simply replied, "Fine, can I please just have an extra spoon?" "Watch out," I warned sarcastically, "they might charge you for the second spoon." The other owner/manager, a man who had been observing the whole thing unfold, found this an appropriate time to interject, with the most smug and condescending tone he could muster: "Yes, you SHOULD charge for the extra spoon... I would!" My biggest regret is that my 6-year old nephew had to witness this maddening display, and didn't get the ice cream that I had promised him. In fact, I felt so bad that I ended up buying an entire tub of ice cream at the grocery store for him and my other nephews. And guess what we discovered, to no-one's surprise? The difference in "cost" between two scoops in a single cone and two scoops split into two cones was just a matter of a few nickels - go figure.
  • Four adults and four children under 5 years old came for a round of minigolf. The pirate course is really fun. Well maintained, freshly painted, beautiful flowers, clean water. The kids were surprised by the trick holes, etc, so it was fun playing with them. No one who hasn't paid is allowed on the course, so you can't just walk while your kids play. One complaint is that I had to go back and get a new ball and stood at the counter for 5 minutes waiting. I watched the girl who had just gone off shift come back, get her bag and leave, but no one else appeared to help me. When a middle-aged lady finally came around the corner, she didn't apologize for the wait but simply said in a tired tone, "what can I get you?" (I'd give 4.5 stars if I could because of this.) We did not stop in the arcade (seemed quite large) or gift shop (a lot of non-golf items).
  • Always a fun time at this place. Can get very crowded so I'd suggest showing up shortly after they open. Mini golf course is well laid out and a challenge. Bumper boats are just a soak fest - they don't go fast but they spray lots.
  • Great place for kids and teens. I came here all the time growing up. There are 2 mini golf courses - one "classic" style and one pirate themed. There's also bumper boats, an arcade (some games with tickets and prizes), and food and drinks. It's attached to an RV park and you can wander down to the beach through the ravine in the back.
  • We have a 32' triple slide trailer and we were unable to fit in to a spot comfortably. We could not put out our awnings and it was just so crammed. Had to cut our camping trip short by a few days. If you have a small trailer then the place is fine but anything with slideouts go and check it out first. Mini Golf was very expensive and no real deals for people staying there or a daily pass. Highly recommend going to Riverbend RV Park, way more room and feels like you are camping
