Mumbler Reviews: NEW Lost City Adventure Golf Hull
Lost City Adventure Golf has recently opened inside St Stephen’s Shopping Centre Hull so I thought I had better go and check it out with my family and see what it’s like! We were very impressed and had a really good family afternoon there.
It’s located on the Leisure Terrace (where the gym used to be); you can book in advance but don’t need to, you can just turn up. It was a wet Saturday afternoon when we went and there was a small queue, but it only took around 10 minutes and there was loads of things to look at in the ‘jungle’ as you queue.
There are 2 courses to choose from, both 18 holes, we picked skull island. All 4 of us played so we collected our clubs and headed into the jungle! You can’t start a hole until the group in front has moved on so it’s well spaced out, we didn’t feel pressured from the group behind us and the group in front of us were well ahead so it was very relaxed and not rushed. It was competitive though! We were given a scorecard and kept a close eye in the scores. To be fair my children didn’t even fall out over the scoring or start cheating until hole 7 so I thought we’d done very well!
The course weaves through the jungle and all holes are different, there were loads of things to see and spot along the way such as animals and ruins, and regular thunderstorms! It was all very well put together and realistic, fun and not too scary. Our highlights were a parrot and a talking tree!
It took about an hour for of us to get around all 18 holes, then we went into the Tiki bar for food and drinks. 4 soft drinks and 2 large pizzas were £16 so it was reasonably priced and really good food. The atmosphere in the cafe bar was really good too, we had a booth and it did feel like we were sat in the jungle.
My children really enjoyed the activity but so did we and my husband; we did it together as a family and felt like we’d actually spent time together (rather than us just taking them somewhere and watching). My children are 10 and 7 and easily managed the course, although it would be fine for much younger children as well as being a good activity for teens.
We will definitely be back for more golf again, I want to try the other course next time. I’d also pop in to just use the Tiki bar if I’m in St Stephens as it makes a really good, different stop for just drinks or food.
