Glowgolf is a super fun activity for the whole family. Glowgolf can be played all year round. In the winter it is comfortably warm and in the summer the air conditioners ensure a COOL round of golf. In summer holidays is open every day from 11:00 am.

The theme is "Adventure". You play mini golf in an amazing fluorescent decor. Via an Aztec temple and an old mine you reach a science fiction part where you have to pass between the spaceships. After this you arrive in the Deep Sea zone where you will be overwhelmed by the beautiful decors. After your underwater experience you will enter the Jurassic zone where the dinosaurs are waiting for you. The 18-hole course is full of beautiful scenery and the many obstacles challenge you to hit a hole in one, will you succeed?

With their special 3D glasses (option € 1.25 each) the experience is even greater. The floors, walls and scenery seem to have depth and the game also becomes more challenging.
A round of Glowgolf with 4 people takes about 60 minutes.

Children from 1.20 m can already go karting with them! They have special mini-karts for them. Children who are taller than 1.45 m, but younger than 16 are considered juniors. They drive the same karts that adults drive, but the speed is limited.
On Sundays they are especially open for children from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Reservations can be made two weeks in advance. Juniors can also ride at the same time as adults! For safety reasons, the speed of adults is therefore limited.
During the holidays there are opportunities on (almost) every day to go karting with children, both for mini-karts and for family heats (where juniors can ride at the same time as adults, everyone drives at junior speed). Reservations are required and can be made via 040-2480445. During the holidays we are open every weekday from 1 pm!
