Chuckster's was started by three friends, Randy, Joe, and Mark, who had a dream of opening a high-quality, unique miniature golf course and entertainment center for families in their hometown. In July 2010, Chuckster's opened in Vestal, NY, and since then thousands of visitors - including the competitors of the 2010 World Miniature Golf Championship - have been enjoying all that the park has to offer. Chuckster's showcases a mini-golf course with uniquely designed holes including the "longest hole on the planet," interactive water holes, and a beautifully landscaped garden-like course setting. The Inside Scoop at Chuckster's opened in 2013, featuring  homemade ice cream, gelato, and sorbet made fresh on-site through the season with a machine imported from Italy. Chuckster's is always looking to offer guests new and exciting attractions, and in 2015 opened the 700 foot zipline, where riders fly over the mini-golf course and fountains. The owners are thankful to the customers and staff who have made Chuckster's a great place for families and friends to come out for a day of fun and recreation.​
