For hours of amusement check out Golf N' Stuff off the 101 freeway in eastern Ventura, just 20 miles west of Newbury Park. Golf N' Stuff features two 18-hole miniature golf courses, Indy style race cars (go-karts), bumper boats, bumper cars and lazer tag and a large arcade. You must be 4' 8" tall to drive the go-karts and at least 4' tall to drive the bumper boats/cars, so make sure to wear heels if you're really short.
Each activity is priced separately, though you could buy a 2 hour unlimited use pass on weekends for $25 (as of February 2013) and try everything. I highly recommend registering in the Golf N Stuff Email Club as they email periodic 2 for 1 mini golf coupons that come in handy. There are also printable coupons on the Golf N Stuff site at golfnstuff.com/ventura/coupons.html. Also check out this BOGOPOD.com link for printable Golf N Stuff coupons.
Wow, talk about a fun venue for a kid's birthday party! Prices range from $12.75 to $21 per person (pricing current as of February 2013) for Ameci's pizza, cake, access to the rides, etc. Our small boys both love Golf N' Stuff.
Golf N' Stuff is open 365 days per year! Yes, it is even open Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day!
There is also a snack bar that serves an assortment of items, like mini pizzas, hot dogs and pretzels. Enough to provide plenty of carbs for your activities.
Exit the 101 off Victoria, head North to Moon Drive, which turns into Walker, and turn left. The park is on the right side.
