Somehow I was under the impression that there wasn’t that much tiki in Florida, at least not in the coastal bars that call themselves “tiki.” I guess they all must have migrated inland—how else can you explain these two tiki-fied mini golf courses within a few miles of each other?
On our last day in Orlando we went to check out Tiki Island Adventure Golf, where an impressive apatosaurus (I still want to call it a brontosaurus, or maybe a longneck) guards the entrance.
The two courses were not only entertaining, but also informative! Each dinosaur had a sign with its name and a description. I like how it looks like that triceratops is keeping an eye on that sneaky tiki.
This dome at the top of the course has a golden Moai inside—and also serves as a good shelter during a somewhat-expected downpour.
According to a video on their web site, this volcano/waterfall can spew fire Mirage-style. But we saw nothing, so it must lie dormant during the day or supposedly until someone gets a hole in one on the last putt.
I thought these “Brontosaurus Boats” were pretty awesome. Except it doesn’t look like there’s much room to maneuver them around the moat.

omg! why don’t we have adventure golf out here???!?!? stupid minigolf
The only “adventure”-style mini golf I found in Vegas was an Egyptian-themed glow-in-the-dark place called King Putt…
What is it with the AWESOME mini golf places in Florida? I’ll never forget when I took my son to Pirate Cove near all of those tourist hotels in Kissimmee. We had a BLAST! Now I need to go play some Tiki golf (for me) LOL!
Thanks! Yes, the pirate golf looked awesome as well…next time!
