Indoor, glow-in-the-dark layout includes holes where balls must be hit between Paul Stanley’s boots with 8-inch heels, or around Gene Simmons’ moving tongue.
A new mini-golf course inspired by the legendary rock band KISS was opened to the public on the night of March 15 in Las Vegas, just south of the Hard Rock Hotel, reports KLAS-TV.
The indoor, glow-in-the-dark 18-hole miniature golf course is part of a completx built by Monster Mini Golf that also includes a KISS gift shop, the Hotter Than Hell Wedding Chapel, a private VIP Room, and the “Rock ‘n Roll All Nite” Café.
KISS tribute bands performed in the parking lot during the grand opening, and band members appeared before the cameras at a black-carpet event held outside.
“I’m actually the only real golfer in the band, but we’re all mini- golfers though,” said KISS member Tommy Thayer.
“I also get a hole-in-one,” KISS co-founder Gene Simmons added, referring to one featured hole that includes his famous tongue as a moving obstacle.
“It’s iconic. It’s larger than life,” noted the other KISS co-founder, Paul Stanley, about the course. “It’s great to hit a ball through a windmill, but wouldn’t you rather hit it through one of my boots with eight-inch heels, especially with the black lights and everything glowing? It’s very, very cool.”
Brittany Yocum and Vanessa Krebs played a quick game on the custom-designed course.
“I think this place is amazing,” Yocum said.
“I haven’t done this in forever, and this is really cool,” Krebs added.
“It’s totally awesome. Las Vegas is very, very lucky to have this, and I’ll be back,” added KISS fan Derrick Simpson.
