Half the fun of playing mini-golf is the atmosphere. Sometimes, the decorations are modest: a windmill, miniature buildings, some sort of clown figure or mascot. But a few mini-golf courses take their themes very seriously. You can putt your way through a course illuminated by black lights and rockband artwork (like the Kiss Monster Mini-Golf pictured here) or roll your ball past a dragon that breathes real fire. (Don't miss that putt!)

As you plan your next family outing, think about these mini-golf courses that promise to entertain, no matter how bad your score. (And keep in mind that some of these facilities aren't open year-round).
