Universal Orlando announced plans Wednesday to open a movie-themed miniature golf course at its CityWalk entertainment district by early next year.

"Hollywood Drive-In Golf" will be themed after the drive-in movie era, with elements from vintage horror movies and 1950s science fiction films. The mini-golf attraction will include two 18-hole courses, dubbed "The Haunting of Ghostly Greens" and "Invaders From Planet Putt."

Universal said the course will feature elaborate movie-style scenes, including a cemetery, giant spider, flying saucer and the basement lab of a haunted house. The course will use interactive elements and special effects, with LED course edge-lighting.

Universal's biggest rival, Walt Disney World, already offers two mini-golf locations on its property: Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course and Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course.
Prices at Disney's courses are $12 per 18–hole round for adults, and $10 for children age 3 to 9.. Universal did not release prices for its course.


Construction of the Hollywood Drive-In attraction is scheduled to begin this summer. The course will be located near the AMC Cineplex, visible to guests as they enter CityWalk from the parking garages.
