Victoria Park Is Bringing Back Its Halloween-Themed Mini Golf Course — This Time with Creepy Clowns

Do the monster mash on the mini golf course — Victoria Park is getting spooky throughout September and October.

Stephen King's horror novels, and the movies based on them, have taught the world many things. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, hanging out in a pet cemetery isn't a great idea, toxic fandom exists and bullying is awful (although everyone already knew the last one). If one life lesson from the author's pages stands out above the rest, however, it's this: clowns can be creepy, chilling and downright terrifying.

Fancy seeing how you cope with the eerie figures while you're on the mini golf course? Wondering if all that makeup put you off your short game? Brisbane is about to get a Halloween putt putt setup, so it's time to do the monster mash while you're tap, tap, tapping — and avoiding frightening jokers.

At Christmas, the Victoria Park Putt Putt Course gives itself a festive revamp. Mini golf is more fun with reindeer, obviously. At Easter, a candy-themed course pops up — and over Valentine's Day, the venue went big on love. Next, from Friday, September 16–Monday, October 31, that's when the Halloween spirit kicks in. The venue's greens will be getting a spooky makeover and, no, missing a hole in one won't be the most terrifying thing about your next stint on the course.

Zombies, witches, spiders, toxic waste barrels, bones, pumpkins — they're also among the petrifying things that'll be improving or scaring your short game. If a haunted house was to meet up with a mini golf course, this is what it'd look like.

If you went along to last year's Halloween putt putt, you're in for an extra bonus — this year's will have a whole set of new and different decorations, so you won't just be hitting a ball around the same setup.

Bookings are essential, with the course open from 6am–10pm Sunday–Thursday and 6am–11pm Friday–Saturday. Fancy a few holes before work? Want to add some fun to your lunch break? Need something to look forward to come quitting time? They're all options. Just remember that it's a family-friendly affair, so you'll likely have plenty of company — and tickets cost $23 per adult.

Also, making a visit between Friday, October 28–Monday, October 31 is particularly recommended. That's when Victoria Park is hosting a Wicked Weekend, complete with Altos Tequila slushie margaritas or a non-alcoholic versions, plus added augmented-reality scares.

Halloween Putt Putt takes over the Victoria Park Putt Putt Course at 309 Herston Road, Herston from Friday, September 16–Monday, October 31, open 6am–10pm Sunday–Thursday and 6am–11pm Friday–Saturday — with tickets costing $23 for adults. For more information, head to the venue's website.
