The golf balls might lie, but the name doesn’t. The medieval-themed Castle Fun Center boasts activities galore, including batting cages, laser tag, roller-skating, rock climbing, a restaurant and pub, and — beneath the blue-and-white castle — a go-cart track. At the center of it all is the dual main attraction: two 18-hole mini-golf courses, the Knight’s Revenge and the Dragon Slayer. These are one-of-a-kind courses. Like castle keeps in days of yore, both courses and all of the obstacles — the castle with turrets, the rope bridges, the chomping alligator — were built by hand by the owner, Brian Leentjes, a mason.

Highlight: The fire-breathing dragon on the 18th hole. “It’s always a crowd pleaser when this huge dragon snorts fire,” says Susan Berntsen, the events coordinator.

What’s new: This summer, mini-golfers will be treated to live music on weekends, so between rounds Rapunzel can really let her hair down.
