The Clubs Are Off, PitPat vs Crazy Golf

If any of you folks have been lucky enough to play a game of PitPat, you’ll know that it’s an incredibly fun new game emerging both in the UK and across the borders. Holemoly! We hear you say? You’d be right to get excited, as PitPat is breaking the mould when it comes to thrilling things to do in the world of competitive socialising! If you’re looking for a different gaming experience look no further.

We’ve heard some call it a cross between minigolf and pool (or snooker depending who you’re talking to) with more action-packed obstacle courses than you can shake your cue stick at!

We like to describe it as an indoor or outdoor table-top hybrid activity skill game, that combines crazy golf and billiards. 

The PitPat table range is covered in Helter skelters, jumps, ramps, and so forth. At The Floodgate, we also like to throw in some UV art - for all the fun glow-in-the-dark feels, and banging tunes to get the atmos ideal to drive players ‘potty’ with glee when engaging in a game of PitPat. 

Fun and games aside, (not really!) but PitPat does require a savvy mind to face the challenge of the obstacle range. You may find yourself discussing with your mates, best ways to get your ball through the course and nail all those sick maneuvers laid out before you. You may even consider your angles, and be sure to line up that shot so that you get the most out of your go and not miss the ball completely! - no one wants to be a puttyfingers! Don’t worry, there’s plenty of time for you to become a PitPat legend, and with its easy and fun nature, you won’t want to play just once. At The Floodgate, we have a plethora of PitPat tables for you to use and as the game is brand new to the UK, everyone's on a level playing field so to speak. You may be the next Pit Pat champion in the making!

So, what about Crazy golf? It’s a great game, obviously - but haven’t we all tried our hand at it? It has received a massive increase in popularity over the years and it’s pretty much saturated now, customers want something new and are getting bored of the same old crazy golf courses. Crazy golf has sprung up absolutely everywhere and said courses have been played again, and again. We are tired of it to put it simply and have been on the search for the next cutting edge activity, paving the way for the next-gen in experiential games - enter PitPat. 

Crazy Golf has had its time in the sun, and there will always be a place for it in our hearts, but it has been overdone. We’re bored and looking for something new and fresh to entertain us. Crazy golf has got to make room for the new kid on the block, which is the action-packed and riveting Pit Pat!
