The brand new mini-gold course at Citywalk Orlando opened today without much fanfare. There are two 18 hole courses, both with pretty cool themes: Horror and Sci-Fi. It’s nice to see Universal adding smaller, yet high quality attractions to their resort. We’re not mini-golf fans, but will definitely try out the course on our next visit.
On March 12, 2012, Universal Orlando Resort officially opened central Florida’s newest and most outrageously-themed miniature golf experience- Hollywood Drive-In Golf at Universal CityWalk. Featuring two 18-hole courses based on classic drive-in era horror and sci-fi movies, this all-new venue is the only place where the entire family can enjoy teeing off through the open mouth of a giant space worm or the basement laboratory of a towering haunted house.
To celebrate the grand opening, some of Universal Orlando’s iconic characters “hit the links.” Universal’s classic monsters – including Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein’s Monster and the Bride of Frankenstein – putted their way through a creepy cemetery on “The Haunting of Ghostly Greens” course. On the opposite side, Men In Black agents and Frank the Pug played “Invaders from Planet Putt” – a course themed after the “little green men” science fiction films of the 1950s.
Designed by Universal’s Creative team in partnership with Adventure Golf Design and Development, Hollywood Drive-In Golf is now open to the public daily from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Admission rates to play one course are $13.99 plus tax for adults and $11.99 plus tax for children (ages 3 to 9).
