Enjoy miniature golf while visiting Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort
 

Orlando is home to many great miniature golf courses, but none of them are quite like this. Located at Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort is Hollywood Drive-In Golf, 36 holes of outrageously themed miniature golf.

The first course, The Haunting of Ghostly Greens, is based on classic horror movies and will have you teeing off through the open mouth of a giant space worm – and that’s just a small taste of the frightful fun.

The second course is Invaders from Planet Putt, themed after the “little green men” science fiction films of the 1950s.

What’s cool about these courses is that although they’re not challenging (which is good for families), they are colorful, crazy and entertaining – and each hole has its own sound effects and other hidden special effects that you’ll have to play through to appreciate. After the sun goes down, there are LED lights that jazz up the night.

 

Here's a brief look at the courses.

Hollywood Drive-In Golf is open daily, 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m.
