Universal Orlando confirms mini-golf course for 2012
Written by Robert Niles
Universal Orlando confirmed today what we first reported to you last month, a miniature golf course is coming to CityWalk.Tweet
"Hollywood Drive-In Golf" will include two 18-hole courses, and be located next to the AMC theaters, between the theaters the resort parking structures.
From 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.
Construction begins this summer and the mini-golf course will be open in "early 2012," according to the resort.
