Pixar Putt Coming to Philadelphia with Pop-up
The new summertime attraction will operate seven days per week in partnership with Delaware River Waterfront Corporation. Monday through Friday from 12pm to 10pm (last entrance at 8:30pm), and Saturday and Sunday from Noon until 10:00pm. (Last entry at 8:45pm). Pixar Putt After Dark is a series of evening sessions available to guests aged 18+ on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday from 7:00pm until 10:00pm. Pixar Putt is also available to rent for corporate and private groups.
Chad Larabee, Pixar Putt's Producer, said that Rockefeller Studios had brought Pixar Putt into the United States so Pixar fans could experience their favorite films, such as Toy Story, Up, Soul, or last year's smash movie, Turning Red, interactively. The course is suitable for children aged 4-104, making it a great addition to the Summer Fest at Penn's Landing.
Pixar Putt allows guests to experience the worlds of their favorite Pixar movies in a new, highly interactive way. The course is just as much about fun as it is about artistry. World-class designers have created a beautiful course that features innovative takes on the most iconic characters of all time.
Larabee said that the designers explore iconic moments in the films and not just set a statue. Pixar's prolific nature allows us to update the course regularly with new and exciting activities.
The guests can putt through French staples such as a massive flaky baguette or a giant cream carton in an area inspired by Ratatouille. The guests can putt through the scary floor of Monsters Inc. or the many screaming fun doors. They can also drop their putter and hit the keys. It's a jazzy, Soul-inspired hole that has putters hitting an oversized keyboard to launch their shot.
