When the owners of The Shops at Riverwood in Provo, Utah, went looking for a company to build out a new family attraction inside Provo Beach Resort, a multi-level, multi-activity family entertainment center in Provo, Utah, they first made contact with several design firms who struggled to put together this unique concept. Sure, it was a bit unusual, but the owners had a novel idea that they wanted to test. When they came to Castle Golf, they found a company used to doing unusual custom work that could take their experience building miniature golf courses and apply it to this mystery attraction.
