    Running Universal

    My friend and I ran the Minions 5k and enjoyed it. My friend's son, who runs cross country, finished first in his age category (around age 12 or 13?). I am thinking about signing up for the Jurassic 5k. I think the course will be slightly different because during the packet pickup a Universal...

    Will Any Wand Work at Harry Potter World?

    Also, if you end up buying an interactive wand, make sure to treat the pointer end with care. From experience, it can easily get scratched up and stop working. Especially if you carry it around outside that bulky case. The employee in the store told me that they recommend using an eraser tip...

    Jurassic Park: The Ride (Now Closed)

    Has anyone been on Jurassic Park lately and noticed a lot of missing/non-operating elements? Yesterday the hadrosaur seemed to have been removed, one of the water-spitting dinosaurs before the lift into the building was gone (although the speaker was still on), the sliding dinosaur in the...

    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hollywood

    I saw on social media someone reporting that there is an extra bonus early show of the nighttime Harry Potter light show some evenings. Can anyone confirm this?

    Tips for visiting Universal Studios on Dec 30th?

    Thanks so much for the advice, Paulio. We've actually been pass holders for 2 years out of about the last three and a half, so we don't have any rush to get on rides like Despicable Me or Transformers, which we've been on many times. Especially if the park is super, super busy. I think our top...

    Tips for visiting Universal Studios on Dec 30th?

    I would never have voluntarily chosen to go on this day, but our family bought Gold Passes at Universal Hollywood from Costco for 2018, and the first use for the passes needs to be no later than Dec. 31st (2017), and there's just no other day we can all make it besides Sat, Dec 30th (probably...

    Need advice for Dec 30th trip

    I would never have voluntarily chosen to go on this day, but our family bought Gold Passes from Costco for 2018, and the first use for the passes needs to be no later than Dec. 31st, and there's just no other day we can all make it. It's hard not to imagine it's best to arrive extra early, but...

    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hollywood

    What about the next two weekends (3/5-6 and 3/12/13)? Are there any planned activities that would close WWOHP for general visitors on those dates? Been checking #potterwatch , but it seems like some days no one is posting, or on other days nothing is posted until past noon. Thanks for...

    What is replacement fee for annual/season pass?

    Thanks for the information! I called the park this morning and asked the same question, and they said it would be $10 to replace the card. The next time we go to the park, should I ask about getting a free replacement? Does anyone have something in print that says the first replacement should...

    What is replacement fee for annual/season pass?

    Does anyone know what the fee is to replace a lost annual or season pass? I can't find the information on Universal's website, and an internet search only shows results from seven or eight years ago (the instructions are to go to the Annual Pass Center with an ID, fee is $20 or $25). I remember...

    How much would you pay for a no-blockout pass in 2016?

    Hi everyone. I just registered for the forums, though I've been reading the main site, Twitter feed, and forums for a few months. My family and I are new passholders since November, though I grew up in Los Angeles and have been going to Universal since I was a child. We've been looking forward...
