KISS By Monster Mini Golf Opens In Las Vegas; Video Footage, Photos Available

KISS By Monster Mini Golf, a unique rock 'n' roll-themed amusement attraction based around the legendary band KISS, had its grand opening on Thursday, March 15, with co-founders members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, as well as bandmembers Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer in attendance. As part of the celebration, Stanley and Simmons slashed through the ceremonial ribbon with their guitars and walked the "black carpet" with other notable guests.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf is the first-of-its-kind indoor glow-in-the-dark custom-designed, rockin' 18-hole miniature golf course and will also host a state-of-the-art arcade, the largest KISS gift shop in the world, a KISS Gallery, the "Hotter Than Hell" Wedding Chapel, a private VIP Room, FANtastic KISS-themed event rooms and the "Rock 'n' Roll All Nite" Café.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf is located at 4503 Paradise Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89169 in the Shoppes at Harmon Square across from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

"I'm actually the only real golfer in the band, but we're all mini golfers though, especially Monster Mini Golf by KISS," KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer told 8 News NOW.

"I also get a hole-in-one," KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons said.

"Who better than KISS? It's iconic. It's larger than life," Paul Stanley told 8 News NOW about Kiss By Monster Mini Golf. "It's great to hit a ball through a windmill, but wouldn't you rather hit it through one of my boots, especially with the black lights and everything glowing? It's very, very cool."

"The KISS brand just keeps getting bigger and bigger around the world. KISS Monster Mini Golf will be a favorite for the KISS Army legion of loyal fans as well as new KISS fans," said Dell Furano, CEO of Live Nation Merchandise, KISS' longtime worldwide exclusive licensing and merchandising partner.
