Well, what a shocker!
Just days after Disney lifted their prices, here comes Universal doing the same, if not more to lighten your wallet next vacation!
A $4 increase on adult and kid day passes takes you up to $96 and $90 respectively.
But the two day park to park passes seem to have rocketed out of this Universe (ha!!)
Now this most popular pass, will set you back a small fortune!
From $146.99 to $175.99 for adults!
While I am in no doubt that it is going to be worth it in a few months time, I honestly think that the gold inside the Gringotts Bank has gone to the head of their Parks CEO Thomas Williams!
At peak times of the year, the parks are already rammed full of guests that have little option to ‘head to a quieter park’. Unlike WDW, Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios can peak out very quickly, leaving 60 minute + line waits for almost all of the popular attractions.
At the height of the season, without the added benefit of the seasonally priced Express Plus system, you could easily hand over your $96 for a regular day pass and gain the pleasure of 2 attractions in the morning, a lengthy wait for lunch and a couple of attractions in the afternoon. At $25 a ride, no, I don’t think that is value for money!
Sorry Disney ‘erm, I mean Universal!
