Funland Mini Golf and Amusements on Chincoteague Island

A few months ago we spent a few days down on Chincoteague Island in Virginia with the family. We had a great time playing on the beach, taking a few nature hikes, bike riding and touring the Assateague Lighthouse. There are a ton of family-friendly activities to do and beautiful things to see.

On one particular afternoon we all went to the Funland Amusements, which is located at 6528 Maddox Blvd. on Chincoteague Island in Virginia. This amusement park is your one-stop source for family fun while visiting the area. They offer an 18-hole miniature golf course, a fun arcade to play videos games, bumper boats, go karts for racing fun, inflatables, climbing ropes for the kids (spider mountain) and all sorts of other family-friendly activities. When we say amusement rides, we're not talking about the kind you find in big amusement parks, like roller coasters, ferris wheels, etc.
Admission: You pay per activity that you do. For example: You'll pay per person, per round of miniature golf, Then if you and the family want to go race the go karts or play around in the bumper boats, you'll pay an addition activity fee, per person. If you're looking to save a little bit of money, check their website for printable coupons.
Hours of operation varies depending on the season and the weather conditions. During the late spring, summer and early fall seasons, they're open daily. check their website or Facebook page for updates and changes to their operating schedule.
We played the 18-hole mini golf course and absolutely loved it! As you go around the course you'll see all of these "animals" that you typically would see on an African safari. Some of the courses are relatively easy and other's are a little bit more challenging. For the most part, we had par 2 and par 3's in the majority of the holes.  We had 4 people in our party and it took us about an hour to play the course.

After we were done playing miniature golf, we headed on over to the Go Karts and had a blast racing those around the race track course. We have driven Go Karts many times at several different places that we've traveled to and I have to admit, this is one fun course to race on. Plus, it's more affordable than other courses that we've recently have visited.

When visiting Chincoteague Island in Virginia, you'll definitely want to visit the Funland Amusements to take in a round of miniature golf, to race Go Karts or to have some fun racing around on the bumper boats! A great family-friendly activity to do...that's affordable! Visit their website for additional information.

The Funland amusement park with miniature golf sounds like a fun park to visit. I would love to try the Go Karts and the statues of animals displayed on the golf course makes this course very unusual.
