A MONSTROUS OPPORTUNITY
Miniature Golf has been the cornerstone of the Family Entertainment industry for decades. Mini Golf was created as a feature and affordable attraction for early industry pioneers. As technology created new attractions and entertainment choices, miniature golf has remained a staple and affordable favorite choice in family entertainment. In 2004 Monster Mini Golf took this ageless classic and moved it indoors, placed it in a glow-in-the-dark arena, added one-of-a-kind entertainment to the guest experience, and coupled it with other unique and fun attractions. Monster Mini Golf made it cool!
Go for the fun. Go for the interactive entertainment. Go for the family time. Monster Mini Golf is a service-based, high-margin business model that provides all of these things at the same time. Monster Entertainment has also developed a series of unique operations business practices and marketing programs to help drive traffic and optimize a sustainable business opportunity, much like the classic game of miniature golf itself.
Why Own a Monster Mini Golf location?
Monster Mini Golf is part of one of the fastest-growing business sector globally, Family Entertainment Centers (FEC). Monster Mini Golf’ core attraction is an exciting indoor 18-hole miniature golf course that offers a host of fun activities at every turn. Imagine glow in the dark mini golf with animated monsters (cool, but not so scary), upbeat fun music and a live DJ entertaining and showering children (and adults) with prizes through interactive games and contests. This is not your average or traditional mini golf course!
We did not stop with only miniature golf though, as our facilities also include a state-of-the-art arcade, a monstrous prize counter, Haunted Mansion themed Private Event and Birthday Party rooms, Laser Mazes and even Laser Tag arenas. We are constantly evaluating the inclusion and implementation of new attractions which add to both the guest experience and revenue streams opportunities.
Our unique indoor year-round destination Family Entertainment Centers allow our guests a unique experience with each visit. This makes Monster Mini Golf the perfect social gathering place for date night, a birthday party, a family event, a corporate event, school field trips, fundraisers and more.
