Glowing Greens (Downtown)

Top marks for adding something a little different to the all too short list of wet weather activities in PDX.

Pros

  • Thematically, far better executed than my (granted, unreasonably low) expectations suggested. The black light effects are very cool, the sound effects spooky and the robotics unexpected.
  • Well designed from a putting perspective also – intelligently laid out to be both fun and varied, but not at all frustrating. Which helps with young tempers.

Cons

  • Not cheap – $10 for adults and $9 for children, with $1.50 off before 5pm on weekdays.
  • Possibly a little frightening for littl’ns. My five year old thought it “a little too spooky”
  • Be prepared for a wait at peak times i.e. wet weekend afternoons. That said, you can put your name on the list and they’ll phone you when it’s five minutes to tee time. Nice.

Tip

  • They validate for “Star Park” next door.

Other mini-golf opportunities abound. Safari Sam’s is also indoor and black-lit.
