So You're Bored: Casel-Land Fun Center
It’s no secret that living in a small town can be fairly boring. There never seems to be any fun things to do when you find yourself with down time. After a long week of classes, studying, work, cleaning and attending to other responsibilities, all you want to do is step away for a while to have some fun. Where do you go? It turns out that the Portales-Clovis area has quite a few attractions that can satisfy the need to take a break from the nitty gritty responsibilities that come with being a college student.
One attraction in the area is Casel-Land Fun Center. Located at 700 Fairlane Drive in Clovis, NM, it offers activities like miniature golf, batting cages, go-carts, bumper boats, and paintball. It’s not hard to miss. No matter which
highway you take to get there, you cannot overlook the netting from the batting cages that looks like the tower roof of a castle or the actual castle that is part of the mini-golf portion of Casel-Land.
Owner and operator, Kara Caselman, said that Casel-Land has been operating in Clovis since 1998. What started off as just go-carts, quickly expanded to add the batting cages, 18-hole miniature golf and paintball. The most recent addition to the fun center was the bumper boats. Casel-Land is the perfect place to take a big group of friends when there is nothing else to do.
Casel-Land’s hours of operation are seasonal, with the park being open from March through November and hours dependent on the time of year. Contact Kara Caselman for current Casel-land hours.
Prices for the park vary according to the activity that you wish to participate in. Miniature Golf prices for adults are $6.50. For the non-traditional students that have a family, kids ages 4-12 cost $5.50 and children 3 and under are free. Children 3 and under will also receive a plastic ball and putter. To sweeten the deal, Casel-Land offers groups of 10 or more people a discounted rate of $5.00 for adults and $4.00 for children. Go-cart prices are $6.50 for a driver and $1.50 for a passenger.
