The Lowdown: New to the Denver mini golf scene, Holey Moley has already received a lot of buzz since its doors opened on September 7th of this year. The mini golf bar of “unique holes and multi-sensory labyrinths” made its U.S. debut in the Mile High after massive success in its country of origin, Australia. The company plans to expand into states like California and Texas soon, but Colorado is the first to experience all the putting fun!

The 45-year-old Old Spaghetti Factory turned pop culture indoor mini-golf bar fills its space with three nine-hole courses, including “Makin it Rain,” “Duck Shoot” and “The Moon and Pars.” Holey Moley promises it will be “the craziest round of mini golf you’ll ever play,” with holes full of nostalgia for the 80s and 90s. In between rounds, indulge in sharable cocktail trophies, unique sours, a bathtub filled to the brim and mouthwatering meals to keep you fueled.

Now, the idea is a nationwide success and a leader in black-light entertainment. Monster Mini Golf isn’t your average indoor course of spinning wheels, artificial green and miniature landmarks; these courses glow in the dark with animated “monsters” lurking around every corner to torment you with silly jokes. Families can play 18 holes winding around hand-painted artwork depicting sites around the Mile High. Throughout the game, enjoy on-course entertainment, including contests, trivia and retro tunes.

Monster Mini Golf is a wacky world of stimulating entertainment! Once you’ve finished putting, explore other attractions like laser tag, bowling and virtual reality. Play timeless classics, including Skee Ball and Air Hockey and new adventures, like Jurassic Park, in the arcade to earn tickets and redeem some sweet prizes.
