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.

For anyone that hasn't gotten to see this mini golf course, it's going to be INSANE. I can't wait to play on it!

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! ;)

heh, just noticed in the rubble you can see part of the old doors that used to be the entrance to the queue. Take a look...

Doesn't look like they spared anything! Oh, well.....

I'm looking forward to playing at the new mini-golf course, too--it looks great.

Poor, poor Jaws . . . but c'est la vie.

By implode, do you mean fold up and move across the park?
