There’s a fun new diversion on the Las Vegas Strip: “The Twilight Zone” mini golf has opened at Bally’s Las Vegas.

You remember “The Invaders,” right? Neither do we, but let’s not get bogged down in details.

The “Twilight Zone”-themed, family-friendly attraction comes from the folks at Monster Mini Golf, the company that created Kiss Monster Mini Golf at Rio Las Vegas.

This time, guests are treated to an indoor, glow-in-the-dark miniature golf course inspired by the classic TV show (wait for it), “The Twilight Zone.”

Mini golf is a throwback to a time when people talked to each other once in awhile.

While the vast majority of customers at “Twilight Zone” Mini Golf weren’t alive when the show aired, 1959 to 1964, it doesn’t require a knowledge of the show to enjoy the charming decor.

Those who do know the show will immediately recognize more than a dozen direct references to “Twilight Zone” episodes. Here’s a list of many of the episodes, because we occasionally visit attraction sober and manage to take notes, shocking as that may be.

  • “Talking Tina”
  • “Eye of the Beholder”
  • “The Hitch-Hiker”
  • “You Drive”
  • “Five Characters in Search of an Exit”
  • “The Invaders”
  • “Twenty Two”
  • “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street”
  • “The Lonely”
  • “Nick of Time”
  • “Nightmare at 22,000 Feet”
  • “To Serve Man”
  • “And When the Sky was Opened”

Classics, all!

It’s creepy. It’s cool. It’s a damned good time on the cheap. Sort of like your sister.

The “Twilight Zone” Mini Golf venue takes up a whopping 10,000-square-feet of space and
is located next to the Real Bodies exhibit on the shopping concourse at Bally’s. It’s
between the food court and the casino. You’ll find it. Look for all the people on first
dates.

You can’t miss it, unless you’re tanked. In which case, the mini golf will be even more fun.

The attraction has to be one of the best values on The Strip, with 18 holes for just
$11.95.

Also in the venue are several lanes of miniature bowling. Again, great value. Five frames of bowling costs $3, 10 frames are just $5.

Approximately $300 less per hour than time spent at a blackjack table.

There’s also a small arcade, and most of the games are just a buck to play.

Also in the works are a gift shop, a special events room and a science fiction-themed wedding chapel.

We chatted with the founder of Monster Mini Golf, Christina Vitagliano, on our podcast, so take a listen.

This one’s from the “Nick of Time” episode which featured an embryonic William Shatner.

No, really. William Shatner.

Vitagliano claims Kiss Mini Golf at Rio is doing well despite a challenging location, so “Twilight Zone” Mini Golf is likely perform strongly.

There are photo ops galore during the course of play, all suitable for sharing in social media. Translation: Marketing gold.

Despite social media causing everything bad that happens in the world, it’s a great way to let people know how much fun you’re having in Vegas.

It’s the only bowling in the neighborhood, and mini golf is a timeless way to spend
some quality time with friends at a reasonable price.

The attraction is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to midnight.

Black (UV) lights reveal phosphors and have many uses, including detecting counterfeits. So, be real.

So, wash your balls (it’s the venue that’s family-friendly, not this blog), spit-shine
your putter (if you get our drift) and take a journey into another dimension, a
dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind (we totally made that up), at “The
Twilight Zone” by Monster Mini Golf at Bally’s resort.
