    I was here on a bus trip with the Schaumburg, Illinois Park District. I love magic and have seen many magic shows in my life. This one was one of the best.A must see when in Lake Geneva.

    We loved this visit. Wasn’t sure what to expect but really enjoyed our time. We laughed and laughed. The animals were more than happy to have a taste of the treats sold by the front gate. They are not shy about wanting to get to know the visitors. I recommend visiting.

    From the darling hotel (Millcreek) and cute shops, to the delicious restaurants and outdoor activities, we had a wonderful time in Lake Geneva, and highly recommend visiting at any time of year!

    Clean restrooms up the stairs and across the lawn. Sandy bottom near the shore. Has 2 piers to swim out and jump off. Did not see any food or drink for sale in immediate area.

    Came here on a Wednesday afternoon in August. After paying the admission fee at the self-service pay station, we first ate lunch at one of the picnic areas in the park. They had some tables in the shade, which made it enjoyable. While there were some flush toilets throughout the park, the facilities in this picnic area were simple latrines (i.e. gravity toilets). After eating lunch, we then went on a nature walk, first through a prairie/meadow, and then finishing up through some forested areas and ponds, closer to the lake shore. You can access the lakeshore from the park, but you have to cross the main road to get there (we didn't do that).

    My husband and I did the gangster’s paradise room which was the hardest room and it was hard!! We did not escape! We were close, probably could have done it in another 10 minutes or so. It was a lot of fun, highly recommend doing this!!

    First time at this mini golf course.

    Overall aesthetics of the course - 5⭐
    There are waterfalls, fountains, bridges, cute stone benches at each hole, trees with overhangs to provide shade, potted flowers, and although we were there in the daytime it looks like there are lights at each Hall along with tiki torches.

    Maintenance of the holes / greens- 5⭐
    The holes are beautifully maintained.
    Many of them have fresh greens put down, and all the stone trim was in good shape and securely attached.

    Creativity of the holes- 3⭐
    Many of the holes just seem to have a stone or a padded flower or an obstacle in the middle of it. However some holes were more creative such as a really really long green and a loop to loop.

    Price- 4⭐ they do accept cash or credit.

    I would visit them again.

    We went here with our daughter’s family. We had appetizers and drinks and then played pool. It was only $2.00 for the game. Our grandsons and we enjoyed the game.

    My husband and I drove an hour to Lake Geneva and rented electric bikes for the afternoon. We had a blast! We rode the tour around Lake Como and Lake Geneva. Leaves were turning and the sites were absolutely beautiful. Lake Geneva Scooter Tours and Rental staff were accommodating, extremely informative and friendly. We will definitely do this experience with them again soon!
