Español Japanese Deutsch Chinese Simplified Chinese Traditional Français Korean Tickets 6. Is there a way to skip attraction Lines?

7. What are the ticket prices? What kind of discounts do you offer?

Universal Studios Hollywood offers a variety of ticket types, with pricing based on ticket benefits.

General 1-day admission is $77.00. Guests under 48 inches (122 centimeters) tall receive a discounted price* of $69.00. Children under the age of 3 years enter free of charge.

There are a variety of other ticket products, including the VIP Experience and Front of Line Pass.

For a list of our tickets, visit our Online Ticket Store .

* The height-based discount cannot be combined with any other discount, promotion or special offer.

8. Can I buy tickets prior to arriving at Universal Studios Hollywood?

Yes, you can buy your tickets in advance through our Online Ticket Store .

Buying your tickets in advance will maximize your convenience: when you arrive at Universal Studios Hollywood, you'll head straight down the red carpet, right to the front turnstile. No need to stop and wait at the ticket booths!

Plus, we frequently offer great online savings for advance purchases only. To see our latest ticket deals, visit our Online Ticket Store now.

9. Why do many of the Universal Studios Hollywood tickets offer discounts based on height rather than age?

Certain park attractions have a minimum-height restriction, so guests under 48 inches (122 cm) tall of any age qualify for a discounted admission* price on our general admission tickets.

However, at this time the Southern California Value Pass and Southern California CityPASS will not be changing immediately. They will still be based on the child age, since we sell these tickets through agreements with other partners who are 'age-based.'

Also, certain ticket types (for example, Annual Pass) are offered with just one price for all guests. For these products, there is no height-based discount version.

* The height-based discount cannot be combined with any other discount, promotion or special offer.

10. How will you determine who is under 48 inches (122 centimeters) tall?

There will be signs featuring Woody Woodpecker at various locations around the front entrance of the Park that will enable guests and Park employees to determine if someone qualifies for the discount or not. The height-based discount cannot be combined with any other discount, promotion or special offer.

The measuring devices being used take average shoe height into account. Guest will be measured with their shoes on. There is some leniency built into the measuring signs to allow for shoes.

The Discounted admission is based on a guest's height at the time they visit Universal Studios Hollywood, not at the time the ticket was purchased.

If a guest has an under 48 inches Discounted Admission ticket but is actually measured to be taller than that, they will be asked to go to the Group Window to upgrade their ticket to a "General Admission" ticket. This will require paying the difference in price between the General and Discounted Admission prices.

Note that adults are also eligible for the same discounted admission if they are under 48" tall.

11. Do I have to purchase a ticket for my baby?

Children 2 years old or younger are allowed to enter the park for free (no ticket needed).

12. Do you offer extended-stay tickets or a season pass?

Yes, we offer different levels of our Annual Pass. Annual Passholders receive discounts on food and merchandise inside the park and at many locations on Universal CityWalk.

You can purchase your Annual Passes now, in our Online Ticket Store .
