REVIEWS OF Sports Center of Connecticut IN Connecticut

Sam Davignon

Fun family place. Mini golf is still pretty new. Some of the shrubbery is overgrown and needs to be trimmed. Interferes with the golfing a little. Fun bowling needed some maintenance as the game glitched a few times and we needed staff to reset the game. The arcade was actually nice and updated with new games. A little pricey but lots of fun.

William Fells

Great place to take the kids. Mini golf, driving range, batting cages, ice skating rink, fun bowl, arcade. Has a little something for everyone.

Musavvir Haque

Fun place to take the family. Reasonably priced fun for anyone of all ages. I often find myself with my daughter at the driving range. $20 for a big bucket of golf balls. They also have golf clubs that you can borrow if you don’t have any

Jana Gariepy

Love it! Such a fun place! The arcade was so much fun and the staff was very friendly and helpful whenever we needed it! Can’t wait to go back!

Colin Liik

Love this place. So much to do between mini golf, ice skating, laser tag, batting cages and more. It's really a great place to spend the day. Great for families!

Gil Schaper

Staff working the pro shop were very friendly and helpful. Bought a mini hockey stick and balls for my son.

Basil Zep

Got a bunch of great things to do. Top Notch facility.

John Jones

Luv it here. Fun for all ages

joseph blackwood jr

Sometimes the batting cage motor system gets stuck, but they never question whether or not you are lying about it.... I find that to be VERY accommodating and stress free. They just push the balls back into place and say "enjoy". Excellence.

ed leonard

Nice clean and well kept ice rinks. Small elevator or lots of stairs to get to second floor rink.

Erick Rios

Lots to do and fun for the whole family.

Janine Pickwick

Great time! Kids loved the mini bowling and mini golf. Fun and a clean place.

zelipha Gitari

lots to do for the whole family. the kids had a good time at the ice rink then we all played mini golf and had lunch there too

Gus Rapini

Love the driving range and Mini golf!

Alicia Makowski

Very good

gordon clark

Love the golf range . They put in new ball trackers you can see how far you r hitting the ball. How the ball speed is traveling. Real nice feature.

Brian B

Took my son here to play some games at their arcade and sadly, found it run down, very dirty and 12 games either not turned on our broken down. I can't tell you when the floors were last vacuumed. 3 of the games you couldn't even put tokens into. Staff was bouncing from the front desk and the prize counter. This unfortunately meant you would just have to wait around until they were done up front, to redeem your ticket. This place used to be better staffed and cleaner but I won't be going back until they get their act together. By the way, we were there in the morning, so the messy floors had been from the previous day, or month, as it would be more likely.

Manju Kapur

So much to do for the whole family! Nice facilities!

Willam Gallagher

Overall a fun place, but to many of the ticket machines were broken, and the bowling was quite expensive to play multiple games of.

Abe B

Great all around place. We keep on going back.

Lauren Martin

This place Sssssssooooo much and inexpensive. Everyone will enjoy it!!!

Jaiden Paul Mary Morrow

We love bowling, mini golf, and aying in the arcade. Still want to do laser tag and skating rink

crazee one

Lots of fun for kids and adults!

Andrew Gray

Was shocked this place had launch monitors... They absolutely only thing I'd like to see here is real grass. Mats are a little worn and uneven but easy to switch height of tees.

Duane B

Great event with company. Fun games and good prizes

Joe Petreycik

Great place for hockey! High quality instruction for beginners!

marcelo assis

Great place for kids to have fun and lose track of time for a while. Always enjoy the arcade and bowling lanes.

Patrick 3622

Bowling wasn't working and a few arcade games.

Michelle Madden

Nice place to bring the family. Expensive but fun.

Stephen Manillo

I've never been anywhere but the driving range here. 4 stars because I think the balls are a little expensive.

Diana Guzman

We had a birthday party here today and it was a awful! My sister got the “Dance Party” package for my 4 yr old nephew. They had promised a party room next to a dance floor and when we arrived we had a party room completely disconnected from the “dance floor” by a room where they hold dog trainings. We had to go one flight of stairs down and another one up in order to go from the party room to the dance floor. The dance floor could easy be called a storage room because it was completely dirty and it had multiple stacked chairs and folded tables against the wall, this did not look like an appropriate place to have a party! We also had 2 employees that were supposed to play the music and get the party going, but they did not even have a playlist ready and put zero effort on entertaining the kids. Not worth a dime!

Chris white

Great ice rinks .and a bonus arcade

Hadas Be

Lots to do with the kids! Lots of fun

Jose Dacuycuy

golf range is good except for the price, $24 for 100 balls is a bit steep, don't mind paying that if they increase the ammount of balls, balls are also pretty worn out. Also maybe the management needs to look into NOT allowing people to SMOKE in the range, majority of people who go there are non smokers and also there are kids and teens who go there to practice and play, just really disappointed when I approached the front desk about it and they just said... NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT... they're allowed to.


Pretty cool place, but I wish there was more of a variety.

Fritz Alcindor Jr.

My cousins had a blast. Wosh they had more food options.

Bill Mcgovern

Love taking my son here. Mini golf, batting cages, driving range, bowling and arcade. Super clean and very friendly staff

Colin Mac

Great facility for entire family. Driving range, mini golf, batting cages, arcade and bowling. Not the cheapest option for a night out but also not outrageously priced. We have fun anytime we go.

Jordan Sahlin

Over all it was fun, but staff is very disrespectful. Yelling and swearing at kids to get out of the building, poor management. New security staff needed!

Rose Hebeler

We recently went to Sportscenter of CT for the St. Joes vs. Trumbull High Varsity Ice Hockey game. There was an incredible crowd, and they were very well staffed with lots of security and management. Courteous staff, clean, great prices considering other high-priced options in Fairfield County. Something fun for everyone in the family. We will continue to come back!

Mark Severino

This trip we stopped at the arcade, and the kids had a blast that's all that matters. staff was very friendly and helpful. Had a birthday party at the Ice rink about a month ago same experience.

Julian Sanfrancesco

Good place but all the food is so expensive

Steve Eide

We went to see a hockey game. It was a terrific game and the accommodations were better then average. Lots of other activities are available at this site. Food was blah otherwise I would have given it 5 stars but then again you don't go here for food.

Veronica Young

Great fun place, it's a little humid and warm but super fun! Almost all games are fully functional. Great ARCADE!

Gregory Ashurov

Had a lot of fun ice skating and playing mini golf.

Mary Tracy

We love this place. We have used the driving range, mini-golf, and the arcade. The facility is clean, and the staff are very friendly.

Evan C

Cool place, I went there about a week ago and it was fun

Deborah Mellow

A fun spot for small kids n birthday parties

Ross MacLean

Played mini golf. On the higher end price wise 13 bucks for adult 11 for kid. Course looks old and mulch is everywhere on the greens.

Jessica Michael

Had the most fun time with my nephews. So many things to do here.

Bill Amidon

A fun place. Lots of activities and games. I especially like the Lazer tag.


Very fun and everyone is very nice!

pedro ferrer

Love this place

Brenda Gutierrez

The concept of this place is a great idea. I usually go for the golfing. I've also mini golfed here. There's rarely anything to do around here besides go out for food, drinks, or go to the movies so I'm happy a place like this exists. It's great for date night. They also have an arcade for kids and they throw birthday parties. To give a bad review for their prices is a bit harsh considering inflation. It's a business and they have to keep running somehow.

Ronald Abelli

Great place. Multiple sport based activities. All year round driving range. Cages are nice machines need to be calibrated.

Jason Sekscenski

Driving Range was nice. Miniature golf was fun too

Brad May

This is a great place to take the kids on the weekend. Mini golf, a driving range, an arcade, batting cages and other fun activities make this worth the trip.

David Bensey

This place is really fun. My kids had a fantastic time playing in the arcade and duck pin bowling.

francis kelly

Fun. Good driving range. Good miniature course

Michael Taylor

Driving range, batting cages, arcade, ice rink, mini golf and more make this spot a great choice for entertaining folks of all ages. The prices are a bit steep, but the facility is well maintained and can accommodate groups of most sizes. They offer birthday parties and group events. Food and beverages are also available. If you are athletic and looking for something to do it's a great choice.

Jim Buonocore

Wonderful place for adults and kids. Great for rainy day.

Lisa Doyle

Batting cages were trash tonight. Machines kept eating the tokens and would work inconsistently. Pitches were all over the place. This isn't the first time. Waste of time and money.

Joseph Ambrose

Fun for the whole family and the only entertainment for miles

wildwolf :3

Honestly great place for a party or just hanging out!

melissa mallone

Wonderful for kids of all ages! So much to do...especially on days when school is out and looking for something to do. The staff is also great and most helpful! They also offer many different party packages at great prices! Will definitely return!

Amanda Quimby

Mini golf was fun, but the course needs some serious maintenance.

Eric Bergen

Something for everyone literally. Golfing Range arcade Bowling ice skating batting cages. Prices Fair but it's the only game in town.

eugene gallagher

So much fun. Love the skate aid thingy. Kind of expensive but a top notch joint

John Marganski

The Sports Center of Connecticut in Shelton has been, and still is, a fantastic place for enjoyments of all types. Prices for the Driving Range, Mini Golf and the Batting Cages (a few of the many options for entertainment, but listing the ones my family uses most) are reasonable, especially when you take into account the clean environment, friendly staff and convenience for the surrounding community.

Wilfredo Rodriguez

It was fun I enjoyed it very much

Warren A

Lots of different things to do. Batting cages, golf range, bowling, arcade, etc. Most of the batting cages are out of order tho. Not a lot of people do the wait isn't too bad. Lots of parking in the area. Bit pricey too.

Shawn F

Overall, my daughter and I had an okay experience. She had fun, but we always have fun together whatever we do. I feel like it's much too expensive for what you get. I spent about $50 total for mini golf and laser tag. Mini golf took about 35 minutes, and then 20 minutes for laser tag - so about $50 an hour for entertainment. That's an expensive hour for a dad and his kid. I guess that's why we spend more time outside hiking and fishing.

romie426 .

Place is really great if you’ve got a little one playing hockey, but with all the money they pull in, somebody should tell them to turn the heaters on around the rinks. Just because it’s not winter, doesn’t mean it’s not freezing for the parents on the outside watching their kids. I shouldn’t have to wear a down jacket in July to watch my son practice

Pedro Navarro

Always a blast kids love it!

Jessie Who

I go here alot with my fiance and I gotta say it's a great place to host events, they have Lazer tag, an arcade, mini golf, duck pin bowling, an ice rink, and so much more. Everything you have to pay separately but it's worth it. I suggest going early in the day that way you can experience basically everything you want in a day. They are open 365 days a year which is really nice. Staff is really nice and ice rink is well kept.

Roland Newmark

Great place for kids and family activities. Mini golf and mini bowling after always ready activities with the kids. The arcade is OK. If you want to skate or go to the driving range out is also a good option.


Always a fun time. We frequently visit this location for family fun and never disappointed. Not the best but perfect for our needs.

Casey Coassin

The place is pretty run down namely the paintball, mini golf, and batting cage areas. For what you get (rundown equipment and areas) it is incredibly expensive. The driving range is $$ for a very small amount of balls. The whole place is pretty low value but high cost. Overall, the staff is somewhat friendly but are definitely more interested in socializing with each other than assisting customers in any capacity. There’s a lot to do here but it definitely comes at a price. I would recommend another activity for families in the area.

Matthew Grant

Had my son's 10th birthday here. Did the Lazer Tag. Host was great with the kids, well organized and the building was clean. Game area worked well, kids had a blast. The party room was a little narrow size wise, but otherwise we had a great time, my son was thrilled and would totally go back again.



Alexdilellagolf Adg

Awful hours Staff is unprofessional Highly over priced $25 a bucket of golf balls? If you want a good time and a place to golf come to Fairchild wheeler golf course $5 any size bucket of balls and we don’t have a bunch of punk teens working and trashing the place

Joe Senick

Great floors!!

Stephen Cavallo

Awesome place to spend the day. Lots of activities and sports available here. Seriously check it out if you are in the area.

Jodi Gerstenhaber

Eh, this place is ok. We went to the arcade and several games were on but not working which we only found out after putting tokens in. There was only one kid working so he could never get around to getting up replacement tokens/tickets. Wanted to go ice skating but it is ridiculously overpriced, they even charge for the skate trainer for little kids.

Lady T

This place different types of activities to do in one building. it's a great birthday party idea

Mithout Gomez

While there has been a few complaint here and there, this place remains the best spot for families and friends to spend quality time together while enjoying a virtual game of golf...

brad van gemert

Batting cages are a waste of time. They are overpriced and work about half the time. Went today and every cage was either malfunctioning or out of order and the repair person wasn't working on them. This isn't the first time service has been poor and they have a lack of understanding it isn't just about the $5 for the token, it is the time it takes to go down. Even when the cages do work, they are constantly jamming so the lines get long and it takes 30 minutes to do two rounds.

Pauline Rafalko

I had a wonderful time bowling.

John Baldwin

Liked the ice rinks, but not the game results.

Tyler Moody

Nice place lots of stuff to do.

M Fischer

A lot to do there, but it's expensive.

Steve Romano

Always a great time

Megan Bryan

We love Lazer tag! It is so fun and I always work up a sweat!

Zacchary Edwards

This place is the best! they have all sorts of activities and a really cool arcade!

Hannah Ahrens

The place is okay if you’re trying find something to do for the day and don’t mind looking at the price tag. For what the games are worth, the prices are outrageously high and the facility itself is very run down in some areas, especially the batting cages and paintball target area. The staff is friendly enough when needed, but seem to put “hanging out” with each other first before addressing customers. Overall it’s a good place to mindlessly spend a few hours on the weekend, but only if your wallet is prepared for it too.

Christy LaSalle

My children learned to skate here, attended many birthday parties through the years and my husband still skates in the men's league. There is a little bit for everyone in this facility.

Crystal Hazen

Great place. Prices are ok. Would be better if it offered value price packages for families visiting often.

Negra dBrooklyn

Good place. My boys love the laser tag

Linda Camacho

Expensive the grandkids had fun

C Cruz

Lot of fun with my son. It is pricey

Eiki Mera

Nice driving range facility.

Eli Dejesus

My daughter and I love this place. It's a great way to spend quality time together. There are so many different activities to choose from. We always have fun.

Annette Duncan

Very enjoyable family time, but some of the games took our tokens and didn't work. Also, the workers rudely rushed us out 7 minutes before closing time.

Gary Baluha

The minigolf course is still in decent condition and challenging enough to be interesting but not frustrating. Good variety of course design too. It's one of the better ones I've been to in CT.

Howie Stefansky

Rented the place it for the whole Camp. Gotta say they have amazing patient nice staff. What more do you need. They happen to have great games also

Jessica Lind

Great place for kids and adults

Dan G

Waaaaay overpriced for what they offer! Be prepared to empty your wallet!

Erik Soderstrom

These are all things that I won playing in the arcade there

Daiane Estelai

execent place to have fun for different ages

Dave Hiller

Mini golf is overpriced and poorly maintained. I couldn't find prices on their website, but it's $12 for adults and $10 for kids. They also make you leave a $1 deposit per person because apparently people walk off with the balls. This is not a problem experienced by any other mini golf course in the country as far as I can tell. I could tolerate the price if the course were nice, but it's a dump. The carpet is extremely old and stained, and there was dirt, leaves, and just general crud everywhere. The holes are also pretty boring - there are often two actual cups per hole for who knows what reason. If you like mini golf you'll be dissatisfied, and if you don't care then you might as well go someplace a lot cheaper.

Mark Scott

Good heated driving range. Launch monitors

Jon Blankemeier

Fun place with a bunch to do!

Kevin OConnell

Excellent family destination. Fun for all ages. Neon Duckpin bowling on mini lanes with it without bumpers is a sure win for little children. Mini golf course is well kept. Nice driving range, batting cages (fast and slow pitch), and paintball target range. Indoor ice rink has public skate several times a week (see their website for schedule). A good value for a fun family afternoon.

Jody Holms

Great place to entertainment the kids. Even the parents.

Juan Cholula

Great place for the family, kind expensive but worth it for the kids.

Adam Heller

Great place for some family fun

Dan Olick

Arcade was ok and the people were great. They charge $19 for 4 tokens for the batting cage and I bought that amount then went back in and bought $19 more...cheaper to do 1 larger purchase but they are the most expensive and lowest quality in all of Connecticut !! OMG the worker was constantly resetting and unclogging the machines which were so bad 1 guy was in the middle of the field to get a strike. Machines are terrible and should get fixed. Dont make parts for it any longer ....then either get out of the business or stop charging. $38 down the drain. Dont use the cages they are awfull

John Saginario

Fun place, great for birthday parties too!

christian martinez

So much fun!

dizzysushi 6

Every thing was fun and I plan on returning

Abe Brach

Great place! Nice selection and just a fun - not to expensive place to spend the day.


I love the sports center. Awesome service, Awesome entertainment.

Jennifer Hofmeister

Snack bar not always open. Clean

David Brady

We’ve been coming here since it opened intermittently because it’s one of the only games in town when you’re looking for a driving range, particularly off-season. However, they are clearly taking advantage of that because their prices have rapidly escalated to the point of it being just simply ridiculous. How can they charge $24 for a bucket of golf balls to hit and sleep at night? Every time I return to this place the bucket of balls price has gone up by two dollars. At some point people have to just stop going and maybe they’ll get a little bit more realistic about the pricing.

Love Jackson

I really enjoyed this facility. I had my 6year old party there. It was perfect for the age group with the room and private exercise time. We then spent an entire hour longer in the arcade below. I will be going back later for laser tag with the older kids.

Caroline Perez

My son goes to Kids Kamp there and loves it. Lots of fun activities for the kids to do and the counselors are wonderful. I highly recommend it.



Daniel Viera, LPQ.

I come here for mini golf and the arcade occasionally. I love this place, and its definitely worth a stop

cherice harris

Great time

Alick Letang

Great fun and awesome place for a single person or entire family. Best place for a kids party or a grown up get together. From the arcade to the batting cages...and so much more.

DJRichy Steele

Family fun. Great prices. They need to service the batting cages. Everything else is awesome!

walter medina

Most amazing night of my life was here during my after grad would recommend it to everyone

Marcus Sabolis

DO NOT GO HERE FOR THE BATTING CAGES. The other stuff is fine but the batting cages are beat to sh**. I've been forced to go here for almost 2 years because of distance and I can guarantee you that only 3 out if 8 cages will be working. The 3 that do work will jam up on you at least once. You usually have to go inside to ask for help, but the machines are so bad that you can't really blame the general staff for not being able to fix them. The mid-speed cages have had "out of order" signs hanging on them for over 6 months. Embarrassing, as the investment to fix them would be no more than a couple hours if labor. Night time is even worse, as most of the lighting is broken -- which is relatively important when balls are getting shot at you. The lights on the slow cages usually work, but the fastest cages literally have no lights. Since the medium cages never work -- you're left with the choice between well lit, super slow pitches - or - super fast cages that are in the dark -- don't come here expecting to work on your game. Generally just terrible maintenance and management of the batting cage. These guys are good with golf, arcades, bowling... But it's clear they don't understand the little things when it comes to baseball. Don't be that guy that blows the $35 on batting tokens.

Robert Bartha

Awesome place to go with the family. There are tons of things to do here from bowling to batting cages, driving range and even an arcade to name a few. Absolutely a blast to visit.

Purple Haze

Been here for my nephew's hockey games. Nice complex.

Krissy Jo

Fun place

Coach Miller

This place is great! A cost effective way to get out and have some fun! From the miniature golf to the duckpin bowling Lazer Tag area, there's fun for the whole family! There's even batting cages, an arcade and a driving range on this nice little amusement campus.

Michael Petruccelli

Great Hockey facilities and tons of other activities for kids of all ages to do. The batting cages are really nice and there are a lot of batting cages so there's not wait. My son plays hockey in the league here every year. We have been coming here for over 10 years now. Great way to spend a weekend afternoon when there's nothing else to do.


Great covered driving range, perfect to hit a few balls after work.

Wayne Pinkham

Nice family oriented sports complex. Good driving range, video games for young ones, well layed out miniature golf. I haven't ventured into the other parts like the ice skating rink etc.

Joann Roberson

It was nice,the employees where awesome.

Jose Burgos

Nice place they have batting cages ice rink lazer tag and driving range fun dor kids

Michael Wilf

$24 for 102 golf balls is ridiculous. Never going back

Ed Diaz

Excellent facility. Top in class. Oh also... Juicy burgers.

Jake guedes

I guess it was nice but some parts smelt really bad, almost like rotten cheese and gotten mixed with a sock, Dwight k. Shrught

Katie Paules

Great place for family, friends, couples to go to and enjoy so much they have to offer

Diego Onishi

Had a lot of fun with son and nephew. Will be back. Very Friendly staff

andres giraldo

Excellent place to take your kids and have fun, lots of different things to do recommend.

Margaret Demaine

Thanks for hosting the First Annual Mini Golf Tournament fundraiser for Special Olympics!

Krazy Abizle

Great place to bring the kids. Everything at one stop. Party rooms for birthdays! Off the Merrit Parkway. Fun place!

La Toya Sargeant

I love their activities! Great atmosphere

Eddie Reyes

Great fun for the kids!

Jessie Michael

Too much fun! Can't wait to go back!

Jacquelyn St. Peter

This place is horrible. We pay for the ice for practice and games. They then turn around and the rink itself Charges us to watch our kids play on the ice we already paid for. In contacting other rings and asking them, we found out they do not charge to come in to the rink. The charges usually come from the teams that are playing there. The money goes back to the team’s program. The rink never keeps the money. At sports Center of Connecticut they charge $8 overall and keep every penny. Other rinks use the money collected at the door by the program to pay for an ambulance and a police officer. The rinks have neither a police officer or an ambulance at any of the games. We have asked several times to speak to the owner and he has never returned our phone calls or emails. Neither has the manager. This is nothing but agreed on the art of the owner. There is no student rate show the kids that would come and support their classmates cannot afford the eight dollars it would cost them to get him to do so. The people who collect at the door or rude and obnoxious.


A bit expensive but the kids had fun

chris peritore

This Place is a Dump.

Andrew Goodman

Didn't even know this place existed. They have everything. Lots of activities. Impressive hockey rink.

Wendy Ann

Post prom fun kids had a blast
