Today Universal Studios Hollywood finally launched their newest annual pas the long-rumored ‘Premium Annual Pass’. Fans have been speculation that a new top-tier pass would debut just before the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with free parking and no blackout dates and at last it’s finally here! But the perks only start there.
At $589 (if you purchase online, $599 at the gate) the Premium pass is really geared toward frequent visitors and die-hard theme park fans. The perks of this pass are quite unique as it features no blackout dates at all from the day you buy the pass and is also the only pass to feature free parking. If you are a frequent visitor, paying parking can really add up so the pass just may pay for itself. But that’s not all, to really help gear this pass towards frequent visitors, people who purchase it will also get unlimited priority boarding to the park’s World Famous Studio Tour, an attraction that must be done at least once when you visit as it’s never the same each time you ride as well as, and get this, a free ticket to Halloween Horror Nights!
In addition to the new passes, Universal also increased their daily ticket prices which do change depending on the time of year you go and expected crowd levels. This is expected as the park is going to launch two high profile attractions this year with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter as well as a brand new year-round walk through experience themed to AMC’s The Walking Dead. Prices now average between $95-$115. So what do you think of the new pricing? Will it minimize the massive crowds expected this summer? We’ll find out soon enough.
