Universal Studios Hollywood Invites Guests to Make Lifetime Memories by Becoming Annual Pass Members and Unlocking Exclusive Benefits Throughout the Year.

The World-Famous Studio Tour’s 60th Anniversary, One-Year Anniversary Celebration of SUPER NINTENDO WORLD, Plus all Theme Park Lands, Rides and Attractions.

Universal City, CA, February 27, 2024 – “Thank you for making us feel valued and special.” This is an overwhelming sentiment shared by Universal Studios Hollywood Annual Pass Members who visit the world-class entertainment destination regularly to enjoy innovative thrill rides and attractions at their own pace, whether it’s for a whole day or to pop in for a favorite ride or to enjoy an exclusive Pass Member opportunity.

With the purchase of a Universal Studios Hollywood Annual or Season Pass, guests can enjoy non-stop fun and flexibility over and over again. While each of the Passes has unique offerings, they have one thing in common: exclusive benefits, such as Pass Member Appreciation Days, Pass Member Park Takeover events,  access to special events, including new rides and attraction previews, discounts in the theme park and at Universal CityWalk Hollywood and sweepstakes. The Platinum Annual Pass includes the coveted after 3pm Universal Express pass with access to participating rides, attractions and seated shows in a separate queue with a shorter wait time.

As Universal Studios Hollywood embarks on the 60th anniversary of the world-renowned Studio Tour and the one-year anniversary of SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™, the theme park is extending a special offer to prospective Annual and Season Pass Members: now through April 10, 2024, guests can save up to $50 when purchasing an Annual Pass online. Current Annual and Season Pass members, who pay in full for their passes, can also continue to enjoy a 15% discount on Annual Pass membership renewals and upgrades.

A Universal Studios Hollywood Annual or Season Pass is the ultimate ticket to ride that affords guests the opportunity to customize their visits. When SUPER NINTENDO WORLD opened, Pass Members were among the first to experience the land with an exclusive preview. With an Annual or Season Pass, guests can return to the Mushroom Kingdom to play at their leisure and improve their score on the “Mario Kart™: Bowser’s Challenge” ride, all while collecting stamps and digital coins with their Power-Up Band™.

For guests who prefer a twilight walk in the park, an Annual or Season Pass will surely illuminate the way, especially when the after-hours Pass Member Park Takeover events shine a spotlight on seasonal events and exclusive Pass Member access, like meeting the Grinch™ for a photo op during the Grinchmas™ holidays.

The array of Annual and Season Passes available cater to a variety of needs and budgets:

  • Platinum Annual Pass: For the ultimate Universal fan, the Platinum Pass Member has no blackout dates, complimentary General Parking (valid only for entry after 6pm), one complimentary General Admission ticket to Halloween Horror Nights (select nights only and advanced reservation required), invites to special Pass Member events, 15% discount on food, beverage and merchandise at participating in-Park locations, 10%-15% discounts on food and shopping at participating Universal CityWalk locations and discounts on Halloween Horror Nights tickets.
