KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer was interviewed on the Las Vegas radio station KOMP yesterday (Friday, January 27) about the grand opening of Kiss By Monster Mini Golf, this weekend’s “Kiss Off” tribute band competition, the “Hotter Than Hell” wedding chapel and more. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
Kiss By Monster Mini Golf, a unique rock ‘n’ roll-themed amusement attraction based around the world-renowned band KISS, is swinging into Las Vegas. Scheduled to open on March 15, Kiss By Monster Mini Golf is the first of its kind and will include an indoor glow-in-the-dark custom-designed, rockin’ 18-hole miniature golf course, a state-of-the-art arcade, the largest KISS gift shop in the world, a KISS Gallery, “Hotter Than Hell” Wedding Chapel, a private VIP Room, FANtastic KISS-themed event rooms and the “Rock ‘n Roll All Nite” Cafe. 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.
To commemorate the launching of the first Kiss By Monster Mini Golf, fans of this legendary band have an opportunity to become immortalized as part of the decor. The KISS Fan Paper will be created with photos sent in by KISS fans doing what they do best, showing off their “KISS.” The walls of the venue will be adorned with KISS admirers and will take on a new meaning for the “place to be seen.” Pricing starting at only $20 will determine placement and size.

“When the idea of a KISS mini golf course was presented to us, we immediately knew that everyone would want to go to a KISS-themed amusement attraction,” said Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons in a joint statement. “There is nothing like KISS mini golf anywhere… It has everything you could ask for: great KISS music, fun games, affordable entertainment in one of the greatest cities in the world and, of course, KISS. A hole in one? One can only dream. Try your luck at the Kiss By Monster Mini Golf.”
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 over 30 themed miniature golf courses across the country, 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 this Kiss By Monster Mini Golf deal.
“Introducing the first-ever Kiss By Monster Mini Golf to Las Vegas is an amazing opportunity for us as we expand our Monster Mini Golf creation. It is also a great honor to work with KISS, who are personal favorites of mine,” says Monster Mini Golf founder, Christina Vitagliano. “I am confident we are creating a venue that will become a must see attraction in Las Vegas.”
Kiss By Monster Mini Golf is located across from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino at the Shoppes at Harmon Square.
