Top 5 Reasons to Play Mini Putt at Dinosaur Adventure Golf in Niagara Falls

If you are looking for fun things to do in Niagara Falls, Dinosaur Adventure Golf has it all!

One of the newest draws to Niagara Falls is located on Clifton Hill, right in the heart of the tourism district. It’s competitive, fun and unique…and if you like mini putt, you will love Dinosaur Adventure Golf!

The ultimate in mini putt experience, Dinosaur Adventure Golf is one of the top attractions in Niagara Falls on Trip Advisor for a number of reasons, but I will break down the top 5 main draws from the reviewers themselves…starting with the most popular reason to visit this golf course:

1. It’s Theme:

When you step onto the mini golf course, you feel like you have just stepped back in time. If you have seen the movie “Jurassic Park”, you will feel like you are on the movie set. You are surrounded by life-like, massive dinosaurs spread out over a 70,000 square foot playing surface, many of which are up to 30 feet high! There are 3 decorative ponds inside the mini putt course, complete with fast-moving rapids. The 50 foot “active” volcano is amazing! Every few minutes it “erupts” and spews out giant flames and steam. The course isn’t just a visual experience though; a digital sound system compliments the experience by pumping out jungle and nature sound effects…making it a mini putt adventure like no other!

2. It’s big…really big!

Like I mentioned above, this mini putt course is huge at 70,000 square feet. The reason why Dinosaur Adventure Golf is one of the nation’s largest, is because you are given TWO course options. With a total of 36 holes, once you enter the gates you are provided with an 18 hole option is separate directions. You can choose the family fun course named “T-Rex Trek” that is fun for the whole family and winds its way through the volcano which children get a kick out of, OR you can choose “Raptor Run” which is a more challenging course–perfect for showing your significant other your skills and placing bets. Will the loser have to buy the winner a beer? Which leads me to reason#3 to choose Dinosaur Adventure Golf as your next Niagara Falls attraction….

3. It’s convenient and close to amenities.

As one reviewer wrote:

“Great for dates Play golf, grab a drink at boston pizza, wins some prizes at the midway. A good time for ten dollars”.

And that’s exactly it. Literally just steps away from the park, is Boston Pizza Clifton Hill. Couples and a group of people together will love not only the challenging course, but that they can eat a great meal, have a few drinks, then play a round of golf. No need to rush your meal either as Dinosaur Adventure Golf is open until the wee hours of the morning in May right through to Labour Day weekend. Not a drinker? No worries, also steps away is Tim Hortons for you coffee lovers, Kelsey’s Restaurant, and several retail outlets when you are ready to do some shopping such as the Canada Trading Company!

4. The Price is Right!

The best in mini putt at an affordable rate of $9.99 for adults and $6.99 for children! Here are a couple more comments from our reviewers on Trip Advisor:

“My daughter is really into dinosaurs, so she loved this place. The sound effects are great and the volcano is cool, so much more fun than your typical mini golf course”.

“Reasonably priced and fun to do. My son was obsessed with the dinosaurs and the real fire coming out of the volcanoes”.

Bring your camera and set aside approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour for some Niagara Falls fun! For the amazing experience that you will receive, Dinosaur Adventure Golf is well worth the inexpensive price! Grab some photos on every hole, as there is always a photo opportunity to share.

5. It’s just another amazing attraction in the Clifton Hill Fun Pass!

Reviewers rave about the Clifton Hill Fun Pass. The Dinosaur Adventure Golf is a top notch attraction among 4 others that are included in one of the best family fun attractions in Niagara Falls. This Niagara Falls fun pass includes the Dinosaur Adventure Golf OR Galaxy Golf (you get your choice between an indoor and outdoor mini putt course), plus the Niagara Skywheel, Movieland Wax Museum, Ghostblasters Dark Ride and the XD Ride Theatre…plus an additional 5 game tokens to play inside the Great Canadian Midway! All this for only $25.95 for adults and $19.95 for children! That’s only $16 more then just purchasing the mini putt course on its own! As an added bonus, if you purchase the Clifton Hill Fun Pass online you will receive ANOTHER Niagara Skywheel admission!
