Summer may be on its way out the door, but that doesn’t mean there still isn’t plenty of time to grab your putter and get a little round of golf in. A little round of miniature golf, that is. Not all of us are good at the real thing, plus, mini golf is great for the whole family. But when we were searching for the best mini golf courses in the world, we found something even better: the strangest. (And, in effect, the best.) Here are our top picks.

old macdonald

Ripley’s Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini Golf, Sevierville, TN

With a putt, putt here, and a putt, putt there…You guessed it. This mini golf course in smalltown Tennessee is themed after the beloved kids’ jingle. There are water features galore and animatronic barnyard animals that hoot and holler (and sometimes poke fun) at you as you make your way along the course. $9.99 for kids; $14.99 for adults

congo mini golf

Congo River Mini Golf, Multiple Locations in Florida

What? You’ve never been to a golf course where you feed a live alligator before getting started? Where have you been?? (Don’t miss out on getting your picture taken—safely…its mouth is bound shut—with one of them!) The rainforest-themed course will have you feeling like Stanley Livingston as you wander through caves, past waterfalls and even an old, forgotten plane wreck. $8.99 for kids, $10.99 for adults

kiss mini golf

Kiss by Monster Mini Golf, Las Vegas

Leave it to Vegas to introduce an indoor, glow-in-the-dark, rock band Kiss-themed mini golf course. This isn’t (clearly) your normal, run-of-the-mill, quiet game of mini golf. A live DJ mixes the best of the band’s music as you putter along. Most disturbingly is the 18th hole, where you’ll have to send your ball up the legendary tongue of—you guessed it—Gene Simmons and into his mouth. Yikes. $11.95

indoor mini golf

Indoor 3D Mini Golf at Wilderness Resort, Wisconsin Dell, WI

Why have one when you can have three? This waterpark resort is home to three indoor mini golf courses. What sets these three apart from the rest are the 3D glasses you’ll wear while you putt around town. You can choose from three different themes: Wild Abyss, Wild Buccaneer and Big Fish. Wild Abyss, $5 for kids, $7 for adults; Wild Buccaneer, $3 for kids, $4 for adults; Big Fish, $4 for kids, $5 for adults
