Another place we visited during our weekend getaway in Sandusky Ohio was Ghostly Manor Thrill Center. If you are into Haunted Houses, it's rated as one of the top in the country. But that's not why we were there.
We opted to check out the family friendly Skateworld, Inflatables, XD Theater and Indoor Glow in the Dark Miniature Golf.
Glow in the Dark Put-Put Golf
When we first arrived we went straight to the Miniature Golf Adventure. To start the game players first watch a brief video where a Wizard explains the details of your mission and the dragon you must slay. This ads a fun twist to the game of put-put
The 9 hole putt-putt course is designed to make you feel like you are walking through caves, waterfalls and an enchanted castle. The black lights and colors made the scenes glow. You even get 3D glasses to wear to enhance the experience.
XD Motion Theater
Next up was a stop in the Motion Theater. Before entering the theater we selected which shows we wanted to see. We chose Canyon Coaster and Snow Ride.
The seats move and the 3D glasses make the images jump off the screen. You really do feel like your being taken along for the ride. Each show lasted about 10 minutes and we were laughing the entire time.
Indoor Playground and Bounce Houses
Then we decided it was time to sit back, relax and let the kids burn off some energy. The entire back section of the center has a huge Indoor Playground and 7 different Inflatables.
The kids has a blast climbing to the top of the structure, sliding down the huge slides and going through the obstacle course. And as an added bonus, my husband and I enjoyed a quiet moment to talk while the kids jumped and bounced away.
Skateworld Roller Rink: Roller Skates and Scooters
To top the night off (and burn off more energy in the hopes of a good night sleep in the hotel!), the kids took to the skating rink. We especially liked the fact that roller skates, roller blades and scooters are available to rent.
The kids choose to use scooters and had an absolute blast going around the rink. The multi-colored lights and fun, energetic music playing over the loud speakers made it even more fun for them. My daughter even stopped skating a couple times to dance to the music. We got a good laugh when she started doing the YMCA!
Overall, we had a wonderful evening at Ghostly Manor Thrill Center. If you ever in the Sandusky area, I suggest you plan a visit.
