Battersea Amusements: Soft Opening

The brickwork cladding and concrete went up quickly over the steel frame. Truthfully, the real work was underground where the bulk of the factory’s machinery would churn day and night in glorious isolation, producing goods and pumping an excess of smoky heat delivered to massive cooling fins and smokestacks at four corners. Battersea Station was ready.

The most important part of course, was more complicated. Could the engineers of Velocity Mill turn their skill towards taking the greatest of all sports.. and making it fit in a couple of rooms?

“We’ll need lots of cottonseed hulls” one opined.

“And a little windmill”, mused another.

Minigolf had been born.

Announcing New Babbage’s first and only 18 hole miniature golf course. This is a soft opening, no major events planned yet, but they will be coming soon.



We have a very easy to learn minigolf game, duelling dunktanks, and an addictive form of bowling some of you may know as ski-ball.
