Where are we going today?

Ever played mini-golf? We can hear a lot of yes's! Every played mini-golf in the dark while the course glows? No? Then you're in for a treat! Glow-A-Rama in a super fun entertainment complex which gives kids the incredible and unique experience of glow in the dark mini golf! The whole course is all in blacklight - AND takes you on a journey of the past!

As you make your way around the 18 holes, you will encounter scary dinosaurs coming out of the darkness, brave knights, vicious dragons, swashbuckling pirates, old west cowboys and gun slinging gangsters....all part of the mini-golf course - how cool is that!

The super fun thing about Blacklight is that everything glows! EVERYTHING! The golf balls, the golf clubs, the score sheet, the holes - even the artwork on the walls and the panels!

YOU can even flow if you wear something white!

Once you've finished, watch your step because you'll be heading into the Scaryville Haunted House Room! But don't worry, you might just come across some super heroes to help you on your way out. Stay strong! 

Want to bring your friends to join in the fun? Why not have your birthday party at Glow-A-Rama! There are 4 pirate party rooms and a really fun Blacklight Dance N'Party Room!

Did we mention the game room? And yep - everything is Blacklight! The ping pong, darts, pool table, air hockey....but it makes the challenge so much more!

So if you want to have a unique family experience, Glow-A-Rama certainly is a unique option!

    WOW! WOW! WOW! I just could not believe that I could find an amusement center like Glow-A-Rama in little old Buchanan. It was absolutely incredible! We played 18 holes of Blacklight Mini-Golf and the kids were in awe of all the graphics, and especially going through the Haunted House. We were so impressed that we all played games in the Blacklight Game Room... I particularily enjoyed playing Blacklight Pool while my kids were fasinated with the Blacklight "Golf Bowl." The staff were exceptionally friendly and interacted with us throught our adventure,...Read More

    My husband and I had a great time. The artwork in the mini-golf is fabulous and playing was loads of fun. We also played pool in blacklight, that was amazing. We will do it again.

    I heard a lot about this place, and I wasn't sure about going because of how out of the way it seemed, but let me tell you...it was WORTH EVERY SECOND!!!
    The 4 of us had a great time with the golf. I have been to many putt-putts but never to a glow in the dark one with great art work on the walls. VERY cool. We will be back, and I hope to see you there!

The staff were exceptionally friendly and interacted with us throught our adventure, in fact, the owner gave us a guided tour of their 4 private party rooms, their future bounce center and lasertag arena, and their recently opened Blacklight Dance Night Club. I would readily recommend Glow-A-Rama to anyone who wants a different kind of family amusement. This is the only one of it's kind in S.W. Virginia, and only one of two in the whole state. Don't miss it!!
