Great time but OH THE BUGS!

We went as a group and had a great time on the Dinosaur course It was later in the evening and the mosquitoes were AWFUL! They had bug spray but we didn't see it until after.

Fun but price was high for how old the facility is. Arcade had many broken games. Overall fun and good for taking up time.

We like to pay miniature golf on vacation, and this place didn't disappoint. It's certainly old school, but with some unique twists (like a rotating golf hole) that you probably wouldn't find anywhere else. We played the dinosaur course, but wish we had time to play them all.

We went to the Magic Carpet Golf in Carnelian Bay, North Lake Tahoe, not South Lake Tahoe ( there are two , which we didn't realise, so we were phoning the wrong one for opening hours!). We really needed something to do - 11 year old son was injured so couldn't ski . The owner was very helpful and even... More

We stopped by here mid-week. $9 per person for 18 holes of mini-golf, seems expensive to me. This was the dragon course. They also have 2 other courses. Maybe a mid week special, or kids price vs. adult price would be appropriate. The holes are fun, but wear and tear is taking its toll.

The Carnelian Bay Magic Carpet was a good place for mini golf. Kids of all ages enjoyed it! They have 3 different courses, one is apparently longer and more difficult. We did one of the shorter ones which was just about right. Seemed a little pricey, but we had a good time. Interesting structures. Call for hours.

We really enjoyed a round of golf at the Magic Carpet. They have creative structures that are well kept and neat. A bit expensive, but it was good family fun.

We visited Magic Carpet Golf during July with kids ranging from 12-20. They all really loved it. We have been coming here for years but it is always well maintained and the people are very pleasant. Always a great thing to do while in Lake Tahoe!

Unexpected great fun and diversity for kids and adults alike. Most probably the best thing you may do at this overhyped, overpriced, masstouristed, mountainspirit-spoiling, bling-bling location. Best thing are the various animated creatures on the course and the "greens" you had to "read" like a Pro.

Spend the day at the beach then called here after spotting it from the road side. Crazy golf is SO much fun and in the UK we don't have many (if any) good ones. This was so much fun. Only 5 min from center of South Lake Tahoe. There is a choice of 3 different courses with fun obstacles, moving... More
