This just might be the most fun you and your family will have in Orlando! Mini golf just doesn’t get any better. Swing to the sounds of reggae, ska, and soca on an 18-hole golf course that winds through a 4-story volcano that frequently erupts in flames. Motion activated life size dinosaurs seem to appear out of nowhere. Putt your way to fun through a lush tropical landscape that offers more surprises and challenges at every hole. There are suspended bridges, cascading waterfalls, a meandering river with paddleboats, glow in the dark caves and parrot shows for exploration and enjoyment. The Lava Lagoon Gift Shop has a great selection of gifts so you can take home memories of your day at Tiki Island Volcano Golf.
Congo River Adventure Golf is conveniently located on International Drive near the Universal Orlando Resort, and it provides a fun time for the whole family.

The grounds of the courses are lushly landscaped, multi-leveled, and offer a number of challenging obstacles like gushing waterfalls, various caves and rocky peaks. Congo River Adventure Golf also has an arcade with the latest games to play and offers refreshments to purchase, plus it's the home of several gators that you can feed, if you dare.
