Dino Park Mini Golf

Dino Park Mini Golf is open in Kata beach for many years and is still a popular spot for families and friends to go for some easygoing fun and competition after dinner.  The golf course and its its ‘Jurassic Park meets Flintstones’ design was an instant hit from the first day… Apparently prehistoric style never gets out of fashion! Dino Park is located near Kata center main intersection, just opposite of Starbucks.

Dino Park Design

Enter a primeval lush jungle and soon you  encounter your first full-scale Triceratops, while a nasty looking Brontosaurus keeps a placid eye on you from high above the trees.

Playing the game in the middle of a beautiful rain forest with a huge volcano blasting clouds of smoke and erupting sounds in the background is a lot of fun. Some challenges include water, obstacles made of bones, and I suspect what looks like Dino poo and even a hole is played inside the (hot) volcano.  The design is just right, not too hard or easy so everyone can enjoy the game. The creative setting keeps your eyes busy while you are waiting for your turn. The whole thing looks pretty real, even the jungle heat!

Will you also recognize the Deinonysaurus, Stegosaurus, Eichynosuarus, Euoplocephalus, the handsome Dimetrodon and the very smart Troodon Formosus? (I think that was him, he didn’t leave his name card).

Dino Park Mini Golf is great fun after a day on the beach, and a game can last between to 30 to 40 minutes, but people tend to play the last part of the game pretty quickly as the area gets pretty hot towards the end. Best is to go after dinner, it’s more colorful with the lighting and less hot, some say it’s even more fun in the rain.

After the game you can also enjoy ‘Dino Bar’, a popular restaurant serving Dino Burgers in a prehistoric cave like garden. I was disappointed when I discovered the burgers were not really made with real Dinosaur meat. The bar serves nice cocktails and ice coffees you will really appreciate after the heat of the game. Dino Park is part of the Marina Phuket Resort and on some evenings the resort’s baby elephant comes and visit the mini golf… some enjoy this, some don’t.
