Nestled in the midst of the Galleria at Tyler in Riverside lays a hidden gem of the Inland Empire. GLO Mini Golf has everything any party planner would need to throw the ultimate celebration.
With 27 differently themed holes traveling you across the world from Paris to Egypt, an arcade and an Xbox room, GLO Mini Golf is definitely a unique party environment that will keep guests entertained for hours. Boasting hand-painted artwork, GLO Mini Golf has a 3-D effect from floor to ceiling, causing guests to feel like they’re in a 3-D movie. Family owned and operated, GLO Mini Golf is committed to excellent customer service and providing guests with the flexibility to create the party of their dreams.
“We can make it however they want the event to go on,” said one of four owners, Michael Mathews. “We can tailor each scenario differently.”
You can choose from two different types of party packages at GLO Mini Golf: The Xbox Game Room Package and The Golf Package.
The Xbox Game Room Package provides guests with private access to the 10 gaming consoles and 20 different games for two hours. There are two package levels, which are The Intro Level and The Expert Level. The difference between the two is that the expert level includes pizza, beverages, arcade tokens and more.
If video games aren't your thing, then you'll want to get The Golf Package. There are two package levels guests can enjoy, which are The Amateur Package and The Pro Package. They each include access to a 400-square foot private party room for 90 minutes, party concierge, tokens for the guest of honor and unlimited 27 holes of golf for 12 people.
“You can bring in your own type of food and have your own time and space in the room where it’s not crowded, it’s your own individual space for your party,” said Mathews.
Both golf packages allow the guest of honor and their friends to enjoy the private room to parktake in all their birthday traditions. You'll get to eat food, hang out, open presents and enjoy cake. From there, you'll have unlimited play time! It's almost like your birthday party never has to end. The Pro Package includes more tokens, pizza, beverages, a special gift for the guest of honor and more.
In addition to mini golf and the Xbox room, the facilities also include an arcade featuring a mixture of new and classic games. The arcade currently has 40 different games, but it is continuously growing, adding about two games per month. Overall, GLO Mini Golf’s party packages are the way to go for anyone looking to plan their next party or event.
Of course, GLO Mini Golf is also a great family fun destination when you just want an engaging activity the whole family will enjoy. An especially good value for families is the Double Dare Package. It comes with two rounds of golf, two pairs of 3-D glasses and 44 tokens. At $32, it offers savings of about $5 dollars and gives guests a sample of a little bit of everything.
“A really good time to come when it’s not very busy would be between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m.,” advised Mathews. “That’s definitely the best time for families to enjoy the course.”
Whether you’re having a birthday party for an eight-year-old or a 40-year-old, throwing a Grad Night for high school senior, basketball team party for 7th graders or simply searching for fun things to do in the IE, GLO Mini Golf can cater to anybody’s needs.
“There really isn’t anything we can’t do for someone,” said Mathews. “They just need to give us a call, and we’ll definitely be able to work it out.”
