City Walk to add Miniature Golf

Looks like Orlando just got even more fun. That is because Universal Orlando Resort has announced that it plans to build a brand new, 36-hole miniature golf course at CityWalk. It will be labeled as “Hollywood Drive-In Golf” and it will be inspired by the classic drive-in movie era. Classic horror and science fiction movies will be the theme for each hole. Visitors will play their way through vintage movie scenes, passing through a cemetery, under a giant spider, through a flying saucer and into the basement lab in a haunted house. It will be unlike any mini-golf course ever made.
“We created Hollywood Drive-In to be fun and different and something everyone can enjoy,” said Ric Florell, senior vice president and general manager of resort revenue operations. “We used 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.” Construction on Hollywood Drive-In Golf is scheduled to begin this summer and the venue will open by early 2012.
