A new mini-golf complex from the owner of King Putt is expected to open at Boulevard Mall by the end of summer.
King Putt owner Jeff Swanlund said the new 30,000-square-foot complex will about double the size of his other locations.
He plans to hire twice the staff size, employing 40 people at the yet-to-be-named complex.

The complex will feature mini-golf, electric go-karts for riders ages 8 and older and laser tag.
“We’re excited,” Swanlund said. “It’s going to be a fairly awesome place for families.”
Swanlund is still going through the building permit process with Clark County. He recently signed a lease for space at Boulevard, mall general manager Timo Kuusela said. The mall is located near the intersection of Maryland Parkway and Desert Inn Road.
Having a mini-golf complex follows mall owner Sansone Cos.’s directive to find nontraditional tenants to anchor the mall in light of brick-and-mortar retail’s struggle competing with online shopping.
“We continue to move away from traditional retail eroded by Amazon and other online retailers to family entertainment for the hard-working families of Las Vegas,” mall manager Kuusela said.
King Putt’s Swanlund said he looked for a couple of years for a third location after the success of the King Putt locations at 7230 W. Lake Mead Blvd. near Tenaya Way, and 27 S. Stephanie St. in Henderson near the 215 Beltway.
