Parabolic Mini-golf

Like the pool table but much bigger.

After seeing U.B.'s anno on ldischler's idea, this thought came to me: do the same, but make it a large (say 50M across) parabola shaped bowl, and put an astroturf surface on the inside. Sink the holes and voila - a parabolic putting green for parabolic mini-golf. You could add bumps and lumps and inclines in the surface which would make it doubly difficult. You could also add any of the hills tunnels and fancy elements - but I think better to stick to fairly flat putting, as the parabolic spinning effects will be lost in the mix.

       [dest] I think it should be Hyperbolic hockey. Sure you'd slide around a bit, but it's worth it for the name.

       This list will probably be more of the exponential nature.
