Not everything at Old Orchard Beach is open yet, but one thing that is a lot of fun for the kids during April vacation is.
Miniature golf is a game for all ages that has mostly remained unchanged for 100 years. Put your ball through a course of obstacles, twists and turns and get it in the hole with as few strokes as possible. But the game we all know and love has a whole new look at Jungle Adventure Mini Golf right on Old Orchard Street.
Jungle Adventure Mini Golf is an indoor, blacklight 3D experience like no other. And yes, we know that a mini-golf course is naturally 3D, but through the use of fluorescent paint on the course and walls glowing in the dark while wearing your 3D glasses, it really pops!
This 18-hole course sets itself apart from the other mini-golf courses in town. If you're there when it's a hot day at the beach this summer, this course is fully air-conditioned.
Jungle Adventure Mini-Golf is in the former location of AIJ Shoe Warehouse right about halfway down on the right at 29 Old Orchard Street. You can't miss the sign when you're looking for it.
And my favorite attraction is the pinball collection available to play in the lobby.
There are some great games here since one of the owners is a pinball collector and is gracious enough to have a bunch of his games available to the public. $1 a play and if you get a good enough score you can win a free game. If you play Rick and Morty, listen carefully to the voice for the mode "Roy: A Life Well Lived." That voice of the narrator is yours truly. It's the perfect connection if you are a Rick and Morty fan and know that Roy's last name is Parsons.
Jungle Adventure Mini-Golf will be open from Saturday, April 16th through Sunday, April 24th, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. They'll open again for the weekends of May 7-8, May 14-15 and May 21-22 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. as well.
Keep watching their Facebook page for an announcement of when they will open for the summer season.
