Choosing a Universal Studios Hollywood Theme Park Ticket
Universal Studios Hollywood offers numerous ticket options to visit the theme park. To help you select a ticket that’s best for you, we have divided this guide into three sections: ticket options, pricing, and verdict. These sections provide detailed information about each ticket and recommendations based on what you wish to experience. It should be noted that this guide only provides information on standard tickets; annual passes, Express passes, and other options are not discussed.
Universal Studios Hollywood offers 1-day admission and 2-day admission tickets. With 1-day admission tickets, you are required to select the day of your visit; your ticket will only be valid on the selected date. With 2-day admission tickets, you are required to select the first day of your visit; your ticket is only valid on the selected date. Your second visit is valid within 7 days of your first visit.
When purchasing tickets, be on the lookout for any special offers. An annual pass may also be a good selection for your trip depending on how long you’re visiting. It should be noted that guests purchasing tickets outside of the United States may have other ticket options.
Universal Studios Hollywood uses dynamic ticket pricing, meaning that the exact cost varies for tickets by date. Tickets are more costly on busy days, such as holidays, summertime, and weekends.
