^Unfortunately, I did not go to the largest one. I think I stopped at the first one on the right side of the road driving in from I-40. I think it was close to the world's largest beef jerky outlet, which I did not have time to stop at either.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge! Original enough to not steal someone else's quote as a signature

Even Blazing Fury? Several years ago, I was there in December on a very cold day and, if I remember correctly, it was open but the other coasters were closed. The water level appeared to have been lowered so that riders didn't get soaked just lightly sprinkled.
So, it sounds like they didn't have any live actors when you went through? My brother and I went through close to Halloween and they actually had three live actors. (I have been several times in the past and seen one at the most and usually none)
One of them was literally jumping from balcony to balcony like a monkey. As a result, he would pop out on us several times through the walkthrough. Still trying to figure out what was wrong with the clown that followed us through half the house without trying to scare us. Seemed like he wanted to take us on the tour.
Anyways, great TR. Love me some Mysterious Mansion!
I had been to the Sir Goony's in Chattanooga, but wasn't even aware that there was one in Knoxville until just a few days ago. Amazingly, this one is even more funky and awesome than the original.
Yes, there are go carts--and paintball, too--but neither were operating when we visited.
This is where you go to buy tickets and be assigned a cat.
"Hello. I'm October, and I will be your designated kitty escort at Sir Goony's today."
"Let me show you hole #1."
Hmmm...water doesn't look too good.
Often, the key to mini golf victory is humping each hole into submission. (Wait, did that sound dirty? Oh...I guess it was supposed to.)
Several holes have "bonus" and/or "penalty cups."
This allowed me to get a zero on this hole. (While Misty fell into the cat trap.)
"Hey, where'd my ball go?"
"Is there a problem, officer?"
Mmmm, the open sea...the smell of fresh pond scum....
The haunted house was pretty cool.
Don't get too confident. Kitty lies in wait.
Note the penalty cup on the left.
The spray bottle is in case you don't like cats. No, seriously.
"I'm a crazy rock monster! Gimme your balls!"
There are two courses: Championship and Goony.
The score card doubles as a coloring page.
Pretty good likeness.
Those are some effed-up looking ghosts.
Not much better.
Care to sit down for a moment?
Does this look really kinky, or is it just me?
"I've got a fang."
"And I've got a hole in my tentacle! That makes me evil!"
Smisty rockin' her Deep South/Texas shirt.
"Don't mind me. You're doing great!"
Okay, I'm going to say it: Sir Goony's, in Knoxville, is the epitome of old-school miniature golf funktasticness. You owe it to yourself, and to the brave men and women who gave their lives to construct it, to go there as soon as possible.
