As a family we love a game of crazy/adventure golf and we can get quite competitive (sometimes with a little cheating from the Mr!) So when TraffordCity asked if we wanted to head down to Dino Falls Adventure Golf for a game one afternoon, it was a no-brainer. Little Legs is quite the dinosaur fanatic, that girl can talk your socks off with dinosaur facts for hours so she couldn’t wait for an afternoon of dinosaurs.
When I say that we are competitive, we show no remorse in beating our opponents, no matter how old they are. We take winning very seriously.
Situated at Trafford Golf Centre, Dino Falls Adventure Golf features an 18-hole easy to follow adventure golf course. Dino Falls really went all out with the prehistoric theme including giant dinosaurs, a water fall, a flowing river and caves, all accompanied with prehistoric looking landscaping. Having never been before Little Legs was excited to be adding some prehistoric fun to her day and was suitably impressed, especially with the animatronic dinosaurs. I appreciated the added little touches around the course like the selfie spots and the prehistoric facts scattered around.
With no booking required, we arrived just before lunch time and it was already quite busy with a 20 minute wait to play. I would suggest getting there early to avoid waiting too long, they also operate on a first come first served basis. Despite us picking a rather grey and drizzly day, it didn’t detract any fun and we barely noticed the rain.
The course is for ages 5 years+ but there were some younger little ones playing on the day and of course there were plenty of adults enjoying a game too.
The course itself is well laid out, the holes starting off easy and and varying in difficulty, with obstacles as we progressed through the course. I was quite impressed at how well Little Legs took to the game, she even made a few holes under par and a coveted hole-in-one. Little Leg’s really enjoyed her afternoon, she didn’t get bored at any point and required no assistance around the course (our last attempt at adventure golf was met with a lot of frustration). Despite losing to a cheating dad, she still finished the course with a big smile on her face, asking if we could go round again. I maintain that I won as there was definitely some cheating happening from the Mr.
On site there is also a café providing refreshments, hot drinks and even a decent children’s food menu that would please the pickiest of eaters. It was a particularly hot day so there was even a refreshment stand outside on the course, selling cold drinks and ice lollies.
Overall we were really impressed with Dino Falls, there was enough variation to keep even the most experienced adventure golfer entertained. It is a really well done course and we can’t wait to go back.
You can visit Dino Falls 7 days a week from 7 am to 10.30 pm including Bank Holidays. It is £22 for a family ticket (2 adults + 2 children) with each additional child being charged at just £4 and adult tickets £8 each.
We would highly recommend Dino Falls for a great family trip out!
