KISS® By Monster Mini Golf®
Moves to Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino – Spring 2016

KISS® By Monster Mini Golf®, a unique rock ‘n roll themed amusement attraction based around the world-renowned band KISS®, is swinging into the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino with an opening set for Spring 2016.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf closed its original location on the corner of Harmon Avenue and Paradise Road on February 6, 2016, as it makes its way to an expanded space and rock ‘n roll environment located inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.  The original location opened its doors in March 2012, and has hosted numerous KISS band member appearances, rock ‘n roll memorabilia shows, weddings, birthday parties, rock legend autograph signings, unique private events and nearly half a million mini golf enthusiasts.

“Being in a hip indoor casino environment is going to provide KISS By Monster Mini Golf an expanded space to not only provide the coolest indoor KISS-themed mini golf experience, but it will allow us the space and security to showcase an amazing collection of KISS Museum memorabilia,” said Christina Vitagliano, CEO/Founder of Monster Mini Golf® and KISS By Monster Mini Golf.  “We are excited to join the Rio with an affordable attraction that rocks,” she said.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf will be located in the Masquerade Village with convenient self-parking in the Masquerade Parking Garage.

The new KISS By Monster Mini Golf location will be a 13,000 square-foot “KISS themed” attraction that showcases an indoor glow-in-the-dark custom-designed, rockin’ 18-hole miniature golf course filled with state-of-the-art video & animatronics, and never-seen-before KISS props. The environment will be filled with arcade games, a special event room, a colossal sized KISS and rock ‘n roll gift shop, and a rock ‘n roll wedding chapel with themed wedding packages. In addition, a live DJ will rock the house, throughout the days and many “Crazy, Crazy Nights” with continuous KISS music, trivia, contests and prizes creating a place embraced by locals, tourists, and rockers of all ages.

A highlight of this KISS themed attraction will be the museum-quality memorabilia located throughout the attraction.  Hundreds of pieces will be on display including: Drummer, Eric Carr’s Porsche that was gifted to him by Paul Stanley & Gene Simmons upon signing on with KISS; Original KISS Drummer Peter Criss’ Spirit of ’76 Tour stage used drum stool; every KISS Album since inception signed by all band members; original 70’s KISS Pinball Machine and actual band member guitars, personal belongings of Bill Aucoin’s, Bruce Kulick’s and more.

Monster Mini Golf was founded in 2004 by visionary, Christina Vitagliano who had “Great Expectations” to create an enjoyable and affordable amusement facility.  Her inspiration expanded to more 30 indoor blacklight themed miniature golf courses across the USA and Canada where “Unmasked” monsters with lively personalities are par for the course.  Her imagination caught the attention of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley and KISS By Monster Mini Golf was born. Live Nation Merchandise, the exclusive worldwide merchandise and licensing agent for KISS, brokered the deal.
