Universal Orlando Private Event

It appears that Universal Orlando Resort will let you have one of its theme parks entirely to yourselves, closing the park off to everyone else.

The mega-resort tweeted this afternoon that its theme park Islands of Adventure will be closing for a private event hours before it normally would:

Islands of Adventure will be closing for a private event this evening at 6PM. All guests, including on-site hotel guests, will not be able to access the park beginning at 5PM. Universal Studios Florida will still remain open, accepting on-site hotel guests until 10PM.

At this time, no details on the private event are known. But what is known is that Universal Theme Parks can be the venue for your next party.

Here are some details about how you can book your private event so the next time Universal sends out this tweet, it’s about you and your awesome friends.
