Mini Golf and Coffin Ride comes to Docklands, Melbourne
Glow Golf Mini Golf (Miniature golf) is based on old fashioned family fun at an affordable price, also great for couples on first dates, corporate social nights, groups of friends as well as Hens and Bucks nights. Mini Golf Melbourne is a small family business where the whole family helps out . The course is an Australian made Miniature golf course and located indoors which is great for inclement weather. Julie says "what we have here is a really awesome presentation of an old fashioned theme based on tried and tested old fashioned family fun. Our Mini Golf has a twist, that is the majority of the Mini golf holes are in the dark under UV lights where the fluorescent paints react and come alive .
The Blyth family having visited various Mini Golf courses throughout the years whilst on holidays, and thought that this concept (that was originally thought of in the USA) was an ideal way to entertain whole families in Melbourne. The thoughts gained momentum and other ideas were stirred into the pot, Glowgolf Mini Golf based on an Australiana theme where not only will tourists learn see attractions about our sun burnt country but children will also notice a thing or two.
"Once again just to add interest we tried to fit a many iconic themes into our mini golf as we could, the Kingswood Ute is there, Crocodile Dundee, Kylie the list just goes on." But it now gets better again added to all this we have also introduced interactive lights and sounds, The radio in the old rusty Ute plays music from Australian legends, the Ute also goes berserk when you put the ball into the back of the Ute, The outback dunny as a bloke groaning like there is no tomorrow, must have had a really bad night, on Hole 18, hit your ball into Ned Kelly head and score a FREE game, but you need to also listen carefully to your random generated score which can make or break your game. Then theres the lights. You tee off looking over the majestic surrounds of Melbourne under a twinkling sky working your way around Australia through the outback and finally finishing at the Sydney Opera House. The last hole is the hardest hole but is the hole that gives the biggest reward, putt the ball here and, well lets just say your effort wont go unrewarded. Added are some old tried and tested holes, such as the loop-the-loop and always difficult Ant Hill.
After constantly seeing indoor Children's Centers that just cater for children (and having 4 children themselves) Michael and Julie realised that affordable entertainment was missing for the whole family. Julie says "That she can not wait to have their first Wedding at the mini golf, with the white wedding dress absolutely glowing under the UV Lights, that would look so stunning" Michael had the vision and technical expertise and Julie has the marketing and creativity prowess to get the Glowgolf Mini golf up and operating, and its the intangible assets that will make this business stand out from all the others. There are hundreds of other business and Franchises in Australia but this business is most notable, giving the public and visitors something new and exciting to look forward to. Michael has been working had developing the website, and soon to introduce online bookings.
Then their is our Coffin Ride, Did Ever wonder what it would be like to be buried alive? "The Last Ride". A simulated ride to the grave in a wooden casket. You listen to a special 3D stereo soundtrack that plays in the pitch dark casket while built in air rams move the casket in sync with the sound track.
The two Cockney gravediggers load you in a hot rod hearse, take a wild ride to the grave site, then they throw you in the hole, and shovel in the dirt until you hear nothing but silence... Then the bugs and creeps attack to a unnerving crescendo, and just when you think all is lost, the lid flies open to a well welcomed breath of fresh air and a "Welcome Back". The ride has an IR camera with audio in the casket so people outside can watch and ponder their own fate.
