Universal Studios Hollywood to Resume Operations April 16th

One of the last major California theme parks to announce their reopening date, Universal Studios Hollywood has confirmed that they will welcome guests back on April 16th.  Tickets for the reopening will go on sale on April 8th.  As with the other parks in the state, only California residents will be eligible to visit the park for now, and groups are limited to people from three households and an overall total of ten people.

All visitors will require a reservation in order to enjoy the fun at Universal Studios Hollywood.  There are plenty of guests out there who already have valid admission tickets in hand, and they'll be able to make reservations starting April 5th.


Season pass holders will be allowed to make reservations for "bonus days" - the first of which is April 15th, which do not count against their blackout dates nor do they count as normal days for calculating how long the pass is valid.  The bonus days will run select dates through May 16th.  Starting May 17th passholders will be given a new pass that shows their new expiration date (which covers all the days the park was closed in addition to the bonus day period).

But how about the rides and attractions!  The park does state that not all will be able to open right away, but they intend to have most everything up and running that they can within the state's guidelines for operations.  This includes the brand new The Secret Life of Pets - Off the Leash dark ride that never got to open.  Also operating will be Jurassic World The Ride, a newer fan favorite at the theme park.  The park released the images included here to hype up guests for the rides before they reopen.
