Coming soon to Universal Orlando: Mini-golf!

City WalkUniversal Orlando Resorts is having such an incredible resurgence! When the theme park giant was perceived as settling for the number 3 spot for the most visited theme park in the U.S, has been having a banner year with its amazingly great Harry Potter-land!

And to offer a great variety of amazing entertainment for the entire family and to lure vacationers and locals alike from going to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Universal Orlando has release incredible news. In the CityWalk area, Universal Orlando will include a 18-course miniature golf course, aptly named “Hollywood Drive-In Golf”. It will be located next to the AMC theaters. Construction will begin “early 2012”. Probably you’ll be asking how fun it will be, here’s an excerpt of the press release:

Inspired by the classic drive-in movie era, guests will be whisked into an elaborately-themed environment based on the vintage horror flicks and “little green men” science fiction films of the 1950s. As they experience two family friendly courses, “The Haunting of Ghostly Greens” and “Invaders From Planet Putt,” guests will putt their way through elaborate movie-style scenes, passing through a cemetery, under a giant spider, through a flying saucer and into the basement lab in a haunted house. Cutting-edge interactive elements and special effects will immerse guests further into the “double feature,” and with LED course edge-lighting they can play day, night and late night.


Can't wait for the mini-golf to be open, just to feel being in one of those B-movies of the 50s. I totally can remember Vincent Price with those “The Fly” costumes, or those “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” movies, or seeing those “little green men” from those movies about aliens and their Roswell-look (priceless!)….definitely I am psyche about walking under that giant spider, it’s going to be fun for the entire family!

It was interesting the words used by Mr. Ric Florell, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Resort Revenue Operations. He said “We created Hollywood Drive-In to be fun and different and something everyone can enjoy. We use creative theming and state-of-the-art technology to take the experience to the next level. It’s perfect for Universal CityWalk – whether you are playing at 11am or 11pm.” It will certainly be a great addition to Universal Orlando. Definitely, we’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available!
