Are you ready to master the legendary skull mountain, battle crazy octopuses, and dodge the shark fountain while making your way through your new favorite mini golf course? If so, then it is high time you visit Shipwreck Mini Golf & Bar in Panama City Beach, Florida. Across their two acres of land, they have two full 18 hole courses equipped with an amazing array of themed challenges. Every square inch of land reflects the shipwreck’s name and their dedication to bringing pirate adventures alive for all their visitors.
As you plan your ball’s route through each leg of the course, you can take in the beautiful sights of the beach beyond. A refreshing Gulf breeze comes off the water and rejuvenates your spirits, helping wick off the sweat you undoubtedly work up while trying to dominate each course. Due to the unpredictable nature of the land and weather, unexpected water features crop up on the courses from time to time. Never mind that, however, as it lends an air of authenticity of the course and reminds everyone that nature cannot be controlled.
Beyond mini-golf, you can enjoy:
Photo opportunities abound, so make sure to bring a fully-charged camera to capture your fun to share with generations to come. With your camera in hand, you can record your transformation into a toucan and even get a picture alongside the elusive Loch Ness Monster. Don’t miss your chance to capture a pic with the fresh-caught great white shark out front to complete your photo book.
Live Music and Dancing
To take their mini-golf course to the next level, the team at Shipwreck regularly books live music acts. The musicians play their most popular jams, treating everyone to an awesome show and a great time. They pump up the jam by bringing in fog machines and fun lights plus encourage everyone to dance the night away. These events tend to start in the evening and run until they close at 8 pm.
Snacks and Beverages
While attempting to master the challenges across this course, you will likely end up quite parched and in need of rejuvenation. Luckily, you can simply order up refreshing beverages and snacks of all kinds. They have both non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks on tap, including their ever-popular hard cider. Although the snacks are nothing to write home about, they promise to keep you energized through each game.
Following the theme of shipwrecks and nature unbridled, the pathways end up overgrown more often than not. So, bring a flashlight or use the one on your phone to lead the way and avoid obstacles. If you need a rest during your navigations, set up shop at the gazebos along the way. As visitors congregate undercover, many walk away with newfound friendships to last a lifetime.
– Plan for your trip through both courses to take about two hours total. You can absolutely spend more time here if you wish, especially if you want to order snacks and drinks between each game.
– If you are a senior or a military member, ask about their discounts.
– Since the paths are overgrown, they are not accessible for people who use wheelchairs or those pushing strollers.
