After a phenomenal inaugural season of business and with loads of new features, one of Maine's hottest new attractions is set to open this coming weekend!

Richmond, Maine's Moose Mountain Adventure Park is a Maine-themed 18-hole mini-golf park set in the heart of Central Maine just off the highway.

Last year was their first year in business and while they were crazy-busy, the town manager didn't say exactly how many people visited- but it was a lot!

According to the Kennebec Journal, this year the husband/wife duo and co-owners, Michelle and Jeremy Purington, say they've added new attractions and are working on more.

The newspaper said guests this year can enjoy food from an onsite Amato's truck.

Additionally, Moose Mountain Adventure Park has added a new mining sluice for the kids, according to the KJ, and kids can get their own bag of sand and sift for gems in the running water.

Also in the works is ANOTHER 18-hole mini-golf course that they have already begun working on that the pair says they hope to open at the beginning of next season, according to the KJ.

The park plans to open this Saturday on May 4th, Star Wars Day! Any guests that come clad in Star Wars garb can snag a free ice cream on Saturday, according to the KJ.

Michelle Purington, co-owner of Moose Mountain, told the KJ,

“We had a huge turn out last year, we were so full. This felt like a nice easy add-on, to do the mining while they are waiting and to have the Amato’s (food truck). I joked that at times, it was like we were at Disney World, where if you wait from this point, it will be a 45-minute wait, or from here, a 30-minute wait,” 


Jeremy Purginton, co-owner, told the Kennebec Journal in part,

“When you hear the cheers and laughter from the Treehouse, you know they are having a good time,”
