What a year 2020 has been! After a 3 month hiatus while a pandemic formed around us, things have stabilized here in Ohio enough that our parks are starting to open back up.

Our first park in this 'new normal' was actually a new one for us. Sluggers and Putters Amusement Park located just outside of Canton, OH is a family entertainment center that happens to operate several amusement rides and even one roller coaster.

Our trip was all round positive. The pair of mini golf courses were above average. The standout attraction for us were the bumper boats which operated in a manner that you could stay on as long as you wished.

We recommend making a visit to this park. It's a great value for the golf and go-karts alone.

We went on a Sunday afternoon. Most spaces in the parking lot were full, but the park did not feel busy.

It's very odd that the majority of the park's signage is of the temporary 'lawn ornament' variety.

What set this park apart from other mini golf / go kart parks is that there are rides!

Distance markers were out. Generally people obeyed them. Masks, however, were not mandatory which we disapprove of.
