Congo River Adventure Golf - 192 Kissimmee
Since playing our first crazy golf course in Florida and enjoying ourselves, our family try to find a different course on each visit. This time it we visited’ The Congo River Adventure Golf’. I have to say from the road it has very pretty scenery set on different levels with lots of greenery, water, and tropical palm trees and flowers. It’s particularly pretty lit up at night time.
Parking is easy and as you walk to pay you pass a small secure area you’ll look down and see baby alligators begging (as cutely as an alligator can!) for you to feed them – very hard for young, inquisitive, children to resist! Food can be purchased which you then attached to feeding rods and lowered down to these eagerly awaiting reptiles, displaying their small, spiky teeth, in their enclosure.
Getting back to the crazy golf, there are two courses to choose from or play both if you wish. This visit we only had time for one course and it takes between 1 – 2 hours depending on the number of players on the course and, of course, your accompanying players ability!
As you move around the holes there are amusing signs such as “Beware! Quicksand Area”, scenery showing quick sand and just a hat visible on the floor…. Or areas of cascading waterfalls with names such as Hippo Crossing, grass roofed mud huts to investigate, a ‘crashed’ propeller aeroplane camouflaged as a zebra, no doubt bring friendly explorers to the Congo, and signs with messages for example ‘friendly villagers gave Stanley food and shelter’.
When we visited we were invited to join a Scavengers Hunt and to look out for several clues around the course. On completion we were given coupons with various ‘prizes’ – ours included $1 off anything of our choice, money off t-shirts, a free round of golf. And when you’ve had enough of the golf, there are peddle boats to hire that go around the edge of the course.
Congo River Adventure is not the most challenging crazy golf course we’ve tried, or the cheapest but we all thought it was very pretty, enjoyable, fun and in true family tradition we would do it again.
If you’re interested it’s open Sunday to Thursdays 10am – 11pm and Friday to Saturday 10am to midnight.
At the time of writing it costs: Adults $10.45 for one course, $14.50 for both courses. Children under 10 are $2 less. One child under 5 goes free with each paid admission.
