    Maybe the $132 is an opening day souvenir ticket. See them on eBay in 50 years selling like a day 1 Disneyland ticket :lol:

    In case it affects any other readers....

    Got confirmation from Universal today that the 3 park explorer tickets for the UK are valid from 12th may at Universal Studios and Islands and 25th for Volcano Bay...

    So I at least will be going for no extra cost...this year.

    I'll believe it's a boutique park when I see it.

    VB will be filling virtually to capacity everyday... just because they cut people off doesn't make it boutique. What IS boutique though is Discovery Bay, where you can sometimes feel like you're one of the only ones in the park.

    If the $130 one-day pass thing is true, there's absolutely no way I'm going. Even if I had enough money I wouldn't want to spend that and support that ridiculously greedy price.

    I'm hearing on Twitter that Universal raised their ticket prices today to match Disney's increase. Any word on that?

    They did, but still no official word on VB prices yet.

    No worries, we've come across it a few times where someone has left it open also

    Cabana will have its own pathway with a gate, and probably an armed border agent to make sure no one tries entering Cabana's pool for free.

    Single day tickets are not going to be over $100. Maybe for the first summer? Yes. But for non peak seasons I can't see anybody paying $100+ for a water park.

    All the slides are so dirty,dusty, some with dots of paint. I hope they pressure wash and scrub everything down good before opening.
