This is an easy to use service which cuts the wait time at the most popular attractions in both Universal Studios and Islands Of Adventure. The Universal Express Pass and Universal Express Plus Pass are available for purchase at the park on the day.
Universal Express Pass
You can now enjoy the popular rides at the parks without having to wait in the regular line! The passes are available at both Universal Studios and Islands Of Adventure for an additional charge.
You obtain your Express Pass in the theme park, with your choice of reserved times to go at an attraction's special Universal Express entrance. The wait time is estimated to be no more than 15 minutes. You can obtain one Express Pass at a time and can get your next Express Pass after:
- You have used the existing Express Pass, or
- The one hour slot to use your existing Express Pass has expired, or
- Two hours have expired after the time printed at the bottom of your current Express Pass.
Universal Express Plus Pass
You can purchase a Universal Express Plus Pass at the theme park on the day you are there. This pass gives you express entry to all the attractions in the park with a single pass - like having an Express Pass for every ride in the theme park! There is a limit of one time per attraction at the Universal Express line and the back of your pass will be initialled each time you use it so the staff know you have used the pass on that attraction.
The pass is available for purchase at the ticket booths at the entrance to both Universal Studios and Islands Of Adventure and at selected locations in each of these theme parks - consult the park guide maps for location details. There are a few restrictions with this pass, although we think they represent great value and make it very easy to do all your favourite rides and attractions even when the theme parks are at their busiest:
- Quantities of this pass are strictly limited.
- The passes go on sale one hour after the park opens and can only be bought in the park i.e. you cannot buy them in advance.
- They are only valid on the day purchased.
- You can buy an Express Plus pass for either Universal Studios or Islands Of Adventure or get a Combo Express Plus pass which covers both theme parks for the same day.
