We went during covid protocol so there was a short wait to enter in order to maintain social distancing. However, everything was clean and felt safe. The course is very well-themed and we really enjoyed the experience. There was just something special about golfing right near the Hollywood Tower of Terror.

What did we think of Pirate’s Cove Mini-golf?

This course packed in the fun, the history of pirates, and a challenging course. We loved that it had added safety components to make sure the ball didn’t float away down a stream. Some of the handrails near the stairs felt a bit weaker. I definitely recommend taking it slow going up and down the stairs.

This is a really fun course and definitely worth the cost.

Alligators at mini golf course

What did we think of Lost Cavern Adventure Mini-golf?

This course is definitely a get what you pay for course. We paid $30 on a Groupon for a family of four. It was a fun course and definitely challenged us. We were able to laugh a lot. This course is in walking distance of a few of the new Universal hotels. I don’t recommend spending the money on feeding the alligators as they seemed incredibly apathetic to the hotdogs they were offered.

This is a fun course though and a great way to spend some family quality time.
