    I do wonder how much they actually make on Grad Bash...It will be nice once they have the new park, I could see Studios becoming the event park even more than it already is

    I can tell you that the park projections during Grad Bash are not high. Around 22-25K at the most. The kids do spend a lot more money than you would think, however.

    Just saw this thread. I'm glad I upgraded my FL seasonal 3 park AP. They gave me 20% off and 6 extra months for upgrading to Preferred. 18 months and 3 parks for $385 is a great deal.

    I'd guess three of the reasons for still holding grad bash are * It's a holdover event from the times Universal had weak late April/early & mid May attendance *Providing an intro to Universal parks for an age group that is, and will be, in their prime demographic *Good community relations....That said, with all of these new hotel rooms and increased attendance in the spring, I would think grad bash's days are numbered

    It's also a pain in the butt to coordinate. Lots of buses to park, extra security, etc. ... but it makes them money. With FW coming soon I don't think there will be a problem with Grad Bash once it opens.

    Most of the days that Grad Bash are held on are slow days in the park still. The only reason April was as busy as it was this year was because of the late Easter.

    Anyone know what is closing both parks early on May 14th? It's not a grad event (Bash or venture), and I'm not sure who would be doing a buyout at both parks.

    This. My first "adult" trip to UOR was as a high school freshman, and it created an AP after a few years (which then caused three more familial APs and numerous multiday tickets for friends). Wasn't GradBash (which is mostly Florida, IIRC), but that school trip definitely paid off for them.

    If they ban smoking and e-cigs it’ll help.
