If you are a frequent traveller to the United States, or more specifically to Los Angeles, California or even Orlando, Florida, you should consider purchasing annual passes for Universal Studios Tours. Annual passes are reasonably priced, and will most likely save you money on admission throughout the year. Several different levels of annual passes are available.
A regular annual pass for Universal Studios Tours costs that what you would otherwise pay visiting the theme parks just twice. With this an annual pass you will be granted twelve full months of admission to the parks, 15% savings on general admission for up to six of your guests, 10% off of all merchandise, and 10% off the price of all food and beverages purchased inside the park.
You will also be given exclusive offers and invitations to special events that are held throughout the year. Some black-out dates do apply to regular annual pass holders. You can upgrade to a deluxe annual pass for slightly more. The deluxe pass will entitle you to all of the things that a regular pass does, with one exception. No black-out dates will apply to you.
The best value is the premium annual pass. This pass will entitle you to twelve months of admission to the park, invitations to special events held throughout the year, exclusive offers, and 15% savings on general admission prices for six of your guests, 10% off the price of merchandise, 10% off the price of food and beverages purchased inside the park, and no black-out dates. Additionally, you will be entitled to free parking during box office hours, and front of the line access at the Universal Studios Tour.
If you plan to visit Universal Studios twice in one year, an annual pass is the most logical choice. General admission for Universal Studios Tours for just one day costs £48. You can get a premium annual pass for less than two trips to Universal Studios. What this essentially means is that if you purchase an annual pass, you are really only paying for two days at the park, and any additional days are the park are actually free!
