Love Dinosaurs and Mini Golf? Raptor Falls in Arundel, Maine, Opens for Season This Weekend
I must admit, I love mini golf. There's nothing not to love. Its quick, fun, doable even with an adult beverage, family-friendly, and sometimes downright challenging.
The Maine mini golf scene is great. There are countless courses that bring a great level of fun, creativity, and challenging play. And then there's this one...which you could say is prehistorically badass.
Located in Arundel is the Jurassic Park of Maine, called Raptor Falls Mini Golf & Ice Cream (everyone knows you need to have ice cream at a mini golf joint).
Opened in 2019, Raptor Falls is a 18-hole mini golf course, with locally made ice cream and animatronic dinosaurs, including a triceratops, tyrannosaurus rex, and of course, raptors. They are all over the course, even playing a big role in some of the holes.
In fact, the whole course is dedicated to the extinct beasts, mixed in with beautiful water features, creatively-theme holes, dino-shaped greens, unique hardscapes, and beautiful landscaping. It's fit for any dinosaur fanatic and/or mini golf enthusiast.
According to Raptor Falls' website, the course was the dream of owners, Bree and Cliff Gajtkowski. That dream became a reality, and is now about to open for its fourth summer.
Opening day is this Saturday, April 29, as long as the weather continues to cooperate. Greens fees and group ticket options can all be found on Raptor Falls website. Happy putting, everyone. And try not to anger any of the dinosaurs with bad play.
