Shows and entertainment at Universal CityWalk

Universal Cinemark

This 20-screen movie theater boasts a Cinemark XD auditorium, with a wall-to-wall screen, custom-engineered surround-sound system, and a state-of-the-art projector that’s capable of displaying 35 trillion colors. If you’re looking for a less-intense experience, you can relax in Luxury Loungers in any of the other 19 theaters.

Universal Cinemark also features:

  • Wheelchair access
  • Stadium seating
  • Theater rentals
  • Mobile ticketing
  • Digital projection

Best of all, regular parking at CityWalk is free with the purchase of two matinee tickets! Simply show your parking receipt at the box office to be reimbursed.

Hollywood Drive-In Golf

Located on the street-level floor of CityWalk, Hollywood Drive-In Golf is a tongue-in-cheek venue consisting of two different 18-hole courses: The Haunting of Ghostly Greens (themed to B-grade horror films) and Invaders from Planet Putt (the sci-fi equivalent). Both courses are bursting at the seams with vintage vibes and interactive elements, helping Hollywood Drive-In to remain one of the highest-ranked putt-putt courses in the Orlando area.

This venue is open from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm, seven days a week, and set to illuminate as the sun goes down. A round of 18 holes costs $17.99 for adults and $15.99 for children aged three to nine. If you want to play both courses, it’ll cost you $32.98 ($28.98 for kids). Discounts are available for veterans, AAA members, seniors, and annual passholders.

Universal’s Great Movie Escape

Experience an escape room adventure like never before! Residing next to Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food lies Universal’s Great Movie Escape, which is home to Back to the Future and Jurassic World breakouts. This innovative affair can be adjusted to skill level and party size, making it a friendly option for your family or group. Plan for about an hour and a half for the entirety of your experience. General tickets for Jurassic World: Escape and Back to the Future: OUTATIME begin at $49.99, and private experiences start at the price point of $300.00. Your ticket includes regular self-parking for one vehicle on the same date as your booking.

Do I have to pay for parking if I’m going to a show at CityWalk?

As we mentioned earlier, regular parking at CityWalk is free with admission to Universal’s Great Movie Escape and the purchase of two matinee tickets from the movie theater – simply show your parking receipt at the box office to be reimbursed.
