Our second course preview for PowerPutt LIVE 2013, you can find the first preview here.
The first item I noticed while playing Haunted Hills was the journey.
I suppose it’s cliché to call 18 holes of mini-golf a “journey,” but this fascinating PowerPutt LIVE 2013 course has that feel.
Forget about 18 holes in a setting with various obstacles setup on each. Haunted Hills takes you on a trip around, into, below and even on top of a home that is, well, haunted. The result is a story of sorts, and variety in a design unlike anything done in the game before.
You’ll see graves, bats, skeletons and the classic horror items surface, of course, but you’ll get much more than that. I have to say; the holes positioned on the inside of this giant mansion were my own personal favorite, an unexpected surprise along the way.
It’s a sprinkle of Clue, a dash of Resident Evil, a splash of that overrated haunted house with the corny plastic skeleton, and a large helping of creative putt-putt design. Trust me, the combination works in a big way.
Much more on the new courses to come. Stay tuned for more!
