Carlucci Land is a popular spot for a bit of friendly or not-so-friendly mini-golf. The 18-hole course is known for its extraordinary collection of metal sculptures inspired by nature.

The junk yard themed course is a popular destination offering a mini-golfing experience like no other, and is open seven days a week until late.

What do you get when you combine a little bit of golf, a few ghosts, and a whole lotta spooky? Witching Hour Mini-Putt and Bar, a spooktacular 13-hole indoor mini-putt on Forresters Lane. This is not for the faint-hearted. Those afraid of spiders, skeletons, witches and clowns are warned that if you’re too scared, there’s no refund.

When the sun goes down the course truly awakens, adding to the fog, strobe lights, clowns and ghouls. To keep you hydrated (or at ease) canned drinks are available from a range of local breweries.


The Lanes

234 - 238 Wakefield Street, Te Aro, Wellington
