Walkabout Mini Golf to Welcome Wallace & Gromit This Summer

Walkabout Mini Golf Wallace and Gromit

Adventurous duo Wallace & Gromit may have graced us with a grand getaway in 2023 but they’re not stopping there. Mighty Coconut, the team behind Walkabout Mini Golf have confirmed that a Wallace & Gromit themed course is on its way!

Partnering with Aardman Animation, the new course will feature 18 easy-mode and hard-mode holes, just like the other courses. Its uniqueness comes from the fact you’ll be putting around Wallace & Gromit’s home! Along the way, you’ll be able to find specially designed lost balls and unlock a commemorative in-game putter.

“Taking our players to 62 West Wallaby Street is such a thrill as a storytelling studio that started in animation,” said Lucas Martell, creator of Walkabout Mini Golf and head of Mighty Coconut in a statement. “Aardman has been a fantastic creative partner and has fully supported our imaginations running wild as superfans of Wallace & Gromit. We think people will be delighted with the charm and inventiveness they find that Wallace and Gromit have been up to in designing and building this new course.”

Mighty Coconut has released several themed courses for Walkabout Mini Golf. There have been courses based on Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, Myst and art collective Meow Wolf. So expect to see plenty of the duo’s weird and wonderful contraptions lying around, for that ultimate Wallace & Gromit ambience.

“Wallace are renowned for their love of tea, this felt a natural partnership for them to tee off with a new adventure….! When we first met with Mighty Coconut about the idea, we knew that there were plenty of opportunities to explore,” Sean Clarke, Managing Director of Aardman said. “With Walkabout Mini Golf, not only do fans get to putt through 62 West Wallaby Street, they can be there together–across their flat or across the globe as they relive old memories and make new ones.”

The new course will be Walkabout Mini Golf’s 27th. It’s currently earmarked for a ‘Summer 2024’ release at present. And it’ll support Meta Quest, PSVR 2, PCVR headsets and Pico. Plus iOS devices thanks to Walkabout Mini Golf: Pocket Edition.

The most recent course to arrive was Ice Lair. Part of the “Evil Lairs” DLC series it sees you putting through the headquarters of a former scientist mastermind.
