Amusement Construction is the leader in the design and construction for go kart tracks, miniature golf courses, batting cages and bumper boat ponds, and for years have been dedicated to creating fun for the world!It all started with miniature golf construction and operations in 1960, and grew to manufacturing award-winning attractions for the family entertainment center industry. Amusement Products began its own construction company, Amusement Construction, in 2000. Amusement Construction began building go kart tracks, miniature golf courses, batting cages, and bumper boat ponds for facilities around the country. Who better to build the sites for the attractions built by their sister company? Since Amusement Construction specializes in family entertainment center construction we know how to build attractions better and more economically for you. The best thing about using Amusement Construction is having your project built per the design, on time and within your budget. Local contractors will tell you that they can build your go kart track, batting cage or miniature golf course, but it is so much more than just pouring concrete. Most local contractors will not even know they are making a mistake until it is too late. Amusement Construction knows how to build the mini golf holes so they play how they should, pour the concrete on the go kart track so your customers can have the smoothest ride, and pour the sloped concrete floor for the batting cage so all the balls roll back to the collection area. This attention to detail ultimately makes your customer’s experience better and makes them want to visit your facility again.
Before beginning the construction phase of a project, you should develop a business plan and create some design concepts. The experts at Amusement Construction can help with the miniature golf course design, go kart track design, batting cage layouts and bumper boat pond designs. We will start with a blank slate and develop a whole family entertainment center design for your site with attraction designs and renderings. These can be used for approvals and are great tools to help you obtain financing. Bankers and investors will be impressed when you show them a scaled drawing of your facility instead of just talking about it.
Family entertainment centers have emerged as a leading entertainment destination in many cities. The FEC industry has seen a rise in construction of indoor and outdoor facilities around the country, in small towns as well as big cities. Indoor family entertainment centers with 20 to 30 feet elevated coaster tracks have gained popularity in the past several years. Whether it is a racing location or an entertainment center, Amusement Construction has designed and built coaster go kart tracks and racing tracks around the country.
Racing on the go kart tracks, playing miniature golf, hitting baseballs and softballs in the batting cages and getting wet on the bumper boats are activities that have become mainstays at family entertainment centers, and these attractions are still going strong today. These types of attractions have proven to attract customers and generate more revenue for you, the operator. When you offer a top-quality product, and have had a leading industry construction company build your attractions, your customer can tell the difference and they will continue to visit your facility for years to come.
At Amusement Construction, we build fun things. And it is fun doing it and helping our customers succeed in the industry. If you are considering building any of the attractions we offer, please browse our website and fill out our contact form for more information.

Having accomplished this, our next goal was to outperform the competition and gain increased customer satisfaction. How did we accomplish this? Refinement and innovation! The timeline below lists a few of the “firsts” we have achieved, and are just a few of the reasons why Amusement Products is the leader in the family entertainment center industry.

Rich Lahey purchased Harris Miniature Golf Courses Inc. in 1988 with a vision for changing the industry.
Back then, miniature golf courses were mostly portable plywood tracks dominated by windmills and clown faces. Sales were dismal. Miniature golf, which hadn’t changed much for decades, had lost its appeal.
Rich believed beautifully landscaped courses with dramatic features, lots of curb appeal and plenty of challenge – not by putting windmills or barns in the way, but by building banked, undulating greens and holes with risks and rewards – would revive interest in miniature golf and bring profitability back to the industry.
“I could see it,” Rich recalls. “I’d drive by these flat plywood courses with the usual array of wooden obstacles, and there would be no one playing. Miniature golf is a really fun family game, but the courses were old and boring. I knew if we built more appealing and challenging courses, people of all ages would come.”
And come they did.
Over the ensuing decade, Rich’s vision led a revolution in miniature golf, leading the industry to build more elaborate courses than ever before and causing profits to soar. Now, instead of charging $2 a game, course owners could charge $4 or $5 and people would pay it. Today, the average price of a round of miniature golf is $8. Rich was hailed by The New York Times as the man who reinvented miniature golf. Today, the industry boasts more than $1 billion in annual revenues and has minted more than its share of millionaire course owners. See how much you could make with our mini golf revenue calculator.
Based on Rich’s vision and decades of experience in building courses around the world, we rely on water features and beautiful landscaping to create fun and inviting spaces. The delicate contours, slopes, and undulations of our greens reward players for a good putt while not overly penalizing a poor effort. At Harris, we believe the key to success is building courses that are interesting and fun to play with just enough challenge to make players want to come back and play again.
Rich and the team at Harris also pioneered the concept of the 36-hole course. Having two 18-hole courses can be key to promoting repeat business and profitability. Two courses not only create more choices and challenges for players, they provide the capacity necessary to accommodate large crowds on summer evenings and weekends. Long lines at overcrowded single courses can reduce profits and drive customers away. Having the second course also allows owners to host groups without having to turn away walk-in customers – a key to midweek profitability.
At Harris, we know that a well-designed and well-built course will produce repeat business year after year. A poorly designed course will quickly become boring and frustrating, and repeat business will drop off. We also know that some of the best design ideas occur during construction, as the course is taking shape. All on-site changes are made with the customer’s approval and without additional charge.

All of our projects are covered by the Harris 110% Guarantee, which means Rich and the team will always go the extra mile to make sure your project is as good as it can possibly be.
“At Harris Miniature Golf, we always give our customers the full measure of our talents,” Rich says. “We feel it is the little things that make the difference between a good job and a great job. The courses we build not only meet but exceed customers’ expectations. We finish projects on time and on budget. When we give you a price, we stick to it.”
