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. Your students will have fun on the educational Tee-Rex mini golf course. They 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*
Chaperones $7.50 if playing*
*All Staff and Chaperones 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.
