Dec. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Most everyone is familiar with the unforgettable lyrics to the song.  Now families in McAlester, Oklahoma have the chance to become familiar with an unforgettable experience.  Great Balls of Fire is a new family entertainment center that opened its doors to the public on November 7, 2011.  This 35,000 square foot facility has a line-up of attractions to keep every member of the family entertained.  

Jim Lang, the owner of this facility, has been working on this project for quite some time now.  He wanted to create a place where everyone in the family can enjoy themselves.  The attraction selection includes 16 bowling lanes, indoor rock climbing, bumper cars, and a large arcade.  But perhaps the most unique attraction is the custom 1950’s themed Cosmic Golf course (  This attraction was designed and built by Creative Works of Indianapolis, Indiana.  Guests have a chance to go back in time and put around some legends of old.  This black light mini golf course has a slew of iconic figures from the era, including James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Frankenstein, Wolfman Jack, and Superman.

The course takes guests through a story of a typical night from the era.  Players tee off at a drive inn burger joint with classic neon signage, a row of Harley’s, and an oversized milkshake.  Guests then make their way to the movies, where they’ll see the monster hit film “The Blob” followed by the iconic Marilyn Monroe.  The story finishes with a Rock ‘n Roll theme, offering imagery of none other than the king himself, Elvis.  Guests take their final skill shot in the 9th hole challenge as they try and activate lights around Wolfman Jack’s microphone and speakers.  “This attraction is sure to stir guests with feelings of nostalgia and fond memories,” said Jeff Schilling of Creative Works. “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with Jim and bring his ideas to life.  We wish him all the best.”
