DEFUNCT: Jonah’s Underwater Mini-Golf – Wisconsin Dells, WI

Photographed October 28, 2016

Words by Mr. Tee

Our trip through the Dells to Indy to de-install Lil Golf at the IMA provided an opportunity to explore mini golf courses we’d had not previously played on a Fall day. Unfortunately, the stopover in the Dells was a bust. One of the courses wasn’t open that day of the week and two of the courses we could find a presence for online ended up defunct.

Across the street from a massive waterpark, Noah’s Ark, is this course that was hard for us to initially locate. After following an online paper trail, we discovered the signage outside of a dumpy looking strip mall. From their Facebook page activity, it appears they closed sometime after the Summer of 2015. We couldn’t get inside to see this former indoor blacklight course so all we have are these photos we found archived online and these two exterior photos we snapped. Located at 1425 Wisconsin Dells Parkway North, Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965
