Lightning Mini-Golf In Fort Collins, Colorado

While many people hit the greens at my age, especially in Northern Colorado, I've never gotten too wrapped up in the game of golf. My dad loves it and my brother has really gotten into it as well but apparently that golf talent completely skipped me. Top Golf? Sure, I'm in. Mini Golf though, I'm your guy! I grew up in the North Denver area and spend many a summer at Adventure Golf on Sheridan in Westminster, Colorado. I don't know if you've ever been, or even been lately, but it's transformed over the years from two mini-golf courses to three, to now an entire entertainment destination. Along with Mini Golf, they have go-karts, bumper cars, mazes, and more. But what if you don't need all of the flash, and just want something fun to do in Northern Colorado? And when stuff is free it makes it that much better, right? That's where Lightning Mini-Golf is taking Fort Collins and NoCo by storm. Get it?
