An extreme interactive amusement thrill ride began operation at Aloha Mini Golf & Shave Ice, 13502 Big Bend in Valley Park, late in the 2018 season.

"Aloha Thunder," a massive 42-foot tall inflatable waterslide, claimed to be one of the largest in the country, opened as the centerpiece of a new inflatable waterslide park, "Aloha Escape," coming to the facility in 2019.

For the past four years, Aloha has been steadily growing its business, offering 18 holes of mini golf in a park-like setting, along with high-quality Hawaiian shave ice.

Hours are Friday, 3 to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 6 p.m., for the month of September, weather permitting. They will also be open on Labor Day, Sept. 3, from 1 to 4 p.m.
