Every so often, Jim Saxe will sit in the middle of Putt-Putt FunHouse and close his eyes. If he does not hear screaming and laughter, he knows he is doing something wrong.

Fortunately, the business is always filled with the joyful cries of children and their families.

Former teachers Jim and Carol Saxe are the husband-and-wife owners of Putt-Putt FunHouse, a building in Webster that is as eye-catching on the outside as it is colorful and crazy on the inside. FunHouse is filled with games, activities and attractions designed to give families hours of fun.

The business includes an arcade, laser tag, virtual reality video games, a 3D movie theater, mini bowling, a jungle gym filled with foam balls, land- and water-based bumper cars, and, of course, mini-golf courses. The FunHouse also features free attractions to give it a funhouse vibe, such as dominoes, an 8-foot pin art wall, and halls filled with mirrors that children and adults entertain each other with, the Saxes said.
