What is special about the Twilight Zone mini golf course?
We always enjoy a good mini golf course, especially themed ones.
The Twilight Zone venue boasts a 10,000 square foot space filled with terrifyingly brilliant custom props, artwork and special glow in the dark lighting.
You’ll also enjoy music from the 1950s and 1960s as the Twilight Zone show aired from 1959 – 1964.
While we only enjoyed the 18-hole mini golf course, they also have an arcade, bowling lanes, gift shop and the only “Syfy Wedding Chapel” on the planet.
Our experience at Twilight Zone Mini Golf
Navigating the inside of casinos has always been a challenge for us. They seem like mini cities with poor signage and a maze of slot machines to keep you lost forever.
The Horsehoe Casino is no different and can be a challenge to find what you’re looking for.
Once inside, find the large escalator down to level 1 and follow signs for either the Bodies exhibit or the Sportsbook.
You’ll find the mini golf course on the left hand side near the arcade and slightly before the Horseshoe Food court.
Hot tip: The monorail station has a stop at Horseshoe which is incredibly close to the mini golf location. We were able to hop on it without winding through Horsehoe to get back on the strip.
Once we found the venue, we bought our tickets and started to play.
The first hole starts off through a doorway into creepiness. The level of detail put into the decor at the course was impressive.
Throughout the course, there were larger than life statues of various creatures and figures.
We aren’t experts in the Twilight Zone series, but the excellent attention to detail encompassed many characters from the original TV show, such as:
- Talky Tina
- The Invaders
- Pig Face People
- And many more…
You can watch a clip from the original show about “Talky Tina” here.
Be nice to your children’s dollies!
Fun tip: Wear a white clothing item to glow in the dark under the black lights.
There were also clips of movies playing on TVs embedded in the walls.
Most of the course is on the easier side, but there were a few fun trick shot style holes that were difficult.
How long does a round take?
It took us around 45 minutes to play the 18-hole round. With low crowds the day we visited; we were able to play at a leisurely pace.
Does the venue accept reservations?
Yes, you can make reservations online here.
