Hollywood Drive-In Golf: The best mini-golf in all of OrlandoOI Blog

The venue consists of two golf courses of 18 holes each. Each course has its own theme: the Haunting of Ghostly Greens and Invaders from Planet Putt. Each also has interactive elements and special effects (did you expect anything less from Universal?) that will leave you loving the vintage vibes and silly antics of the course's characters.
Hollywood is open from 9:00am to 2:00am, seven days a week, and set to illuminate as the sun goes down. Meant for kids of all ages, there’s no excluding anyone here.
Perhaps to no one’s surprise, as former MIB agents, we chose to battle the aliens on Invaders from Planet Putt first. After selecting our golf balls and putters, we set off to see who was the best of the best!
During Invaders from Planet Putt, we had a great time challenging each other, and the interactive course really enhanced the game for us. We loved that the aliens attempted to stand in our way of achieving the lowest score and couldn’t help but wonder how some of the holes even worked. “Where is this crazy ball going?”
This course seemed to fit kids more so than Ghostly Greens; it was very playful, with a childlike energy. It was a perfect ending to our afternoon exploring Universal, and we couldn’t wait to go back and play the Haunting of Ghostly Greens course!
As it turns out, it took only a couple of days for us to do precisely that, after Sean and I were once again faced with an evening of the What-to-Do's and remembered how much fun we had at Hollywood Golf.
