I could see this golf course being a success as there are tons of golf courses in the Orlando vicinity. Having the golf course on Universal property will put a much higher chance of success. Also, the low maitenance fees should give Universal a good amount of profit.
1: Lightning Run, 2: El Toro, 3: Maverick, 4: Xcelerator, 5: Voyage, 6: TTD, 7: Gold Striker, 8: El Loco (Vegas), 9: Millennium Force, 10: Kingda Ka Coaster Credits: 110 (89 steel, 21 wood); Last Coaster Credit: Raptor (CP) [8/22/14]; Last Park Credit: Waldameer [8/21/14] What a season pass??
Is Hollywood Drive-In Golf a third party vendor? . Huge respect to them for using social media correctly. I love when a company communicates with their customers and answers questions or responds to concerns. I look forward to playing a couple rounds next time I'm there.

Hey everyone...went down to Universal Orlando today to get an update on all the work going on at both parks. Was able to take a peak behind the walls in Amity, and I'll warn you, it's not pretty. If you were a huge fan of Jaws...you might not want to read this update!
The new Hollywood Drive-in Mini Golf, which is supposed to open this week in Citiwalk, looks pretty much "done!"
All the courses now have been filled in, and all the theming seems to be in place.
This honestly looks like a lot of fun and should be a great addition to Citiwalk!
Many of the holes look quite elaborate!
Looking forward to checking this out over the next week or two...
Looks like fun!
Ain't nothing creepier than a 40 year old man taking a photo with Dora the Explorer! You're welcome!
Looks like the frame of Gru's house at Disciple Me is really taking shape!
What do you think? Should we stick around for the taping? ;)
It sure isn't Fourth of July in Amity anymore! Jaws fans take note...the next few photos may really bum you out!
The buildings in the Amity area are either being demolished, or looks like they are being prepped for their demise.
"Amity 6 to Base... Base? Come in Base? Base? Are you there???"
There are still a few buildings standing...but the rest of the ride seems to be totally wiped out!
Just a few weeks ago, Jaws look like this.
Today, it looks like this.
You can see the old maintenance building in the background.
Another shot of the rubble that used to be Jaws.
More piles of Jaws.
Some of the Amity buildings getting ready to die.
More pics of buildings and stuff....
More random Amity demise...what do I see in the background?
Ooooh!!!! Extreme close up!
So yeah...Jaws is gone. I'm bummed...but hey...maybe the new ride will be even better?
I rode Transformers a couple of weeks ago. It was pretty good! I don't think Transformers is going here, I just didn't have a better caption to write.
Want a Nathan's hot dog? TOO BAD!!!!!!
Here's what Amity used to look like. Guess what? It don't look like that no more!
Jaws is gone, but Fear Factor Live is still going strong! Oh, the irony! ;)
Rode Men in Black today. Still one of the best rides in the park! (Thank you Dave Cobb!)
Hulk was running....yeah...ok, I only have this picture here because if I don't have at least one roller coaster photo in an update, I'll get yelled at by the coaster geeks. So there you guys go. Suck it up.
Oh, no! Who stole Spidey?!?!
We heard a rumor this may soft open mid-March. Anyone heard anything? Or are our sources insane? (We think they are!)
This is where the 560 foot tall, 200 MPH Intamin rocket coaster is going.
Did this area get touched up recently? Because it looks a lot brighter than it used to. Either that or I got dumber...which is entirely possible.
I swear last time I was here this section was looking a bit more faded. Well, it looks good now, I guess...
Internet access AND mobile phone recharge? This I like!
"Mac and Cheese!" ;)
We took a quick look into the Wizarding World.
Forbidden Journey is still my favourite Harry Potter ride! I love it! (even though I still don't quite know what's going on!)
Look, people will hate me for saying it, and I know it's a hat, and it means something, but this still looks like a talking poop to me!
I'm told this building has been marked for demolition.
They are also going to implode this tent.
How long do you think this guy has to live?
DO NOT IGNORE THE SUBTLE CLUES!!!! Universal is clearly telling us here that Jurassic Park is the next attraction to go! ;)
Was a great day at Universal Studios. Looking forward to all the changes and new stuff happening in 2012!
