Out-of-state Guests who would like to visit Universal Studios Hollywood can now purchase their theme park tickets online.
Prior to today, Guests could only buy their park tickets at the theme park’s front gate. Now, out-of-state visitors can not only buy their theme park tickets online but are also able to purchase a Universal Express Pass, which gives them front-of-the-line access to certain attractions.
While out-of-state Guests are now able to buy their park tickets online, there are still some restrictions they must adhere to when traveling to Universal Studios Hollywood. According to the Universal Hollywood website:
New government guidelines now allow us to invite out of-state visitors who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination and a photo ID must be presented at our front gate tickets booths prior to purchase. Acceptable forms of proof of vaccination are a vaccination card or photo/digital photo of vaccination card (including name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date last dose administered) or documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider, in each case showing that at least two weeks have passed since receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series (e.g., Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) or since receipt of a single-dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson and Johnson [J&J]/Janssen).
At this time, all out-of-state visitors to Universal Studios Hollywood must be over the age of 16. Due to the fact that anyone under the age of 16 cannot yet receive the COVID-19 vaccine, they will not be allowed into the theme park, no matter the vaccination status of the other members of their party.
Regardless of whether Guests are in-state or out-of-state visitors or if they have been vaccinated, all Guests will be required to wear masks while not eating or drinking — which is only allowed in designated dining areas. Guests must also maintain a social distance of at least six feet from other Guests and receive a mandatory temperature check before they enter the theme park.
Universal Orlando Resort recently got rid of their temperature checks and reduced their social distancing requirements, but they are still in place at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Los Angeles County, where Universal Studios Hollywood is located, recently became eligible to enter the least restrictive COVID-19 tier, tier 4, the yellow tier, which means they can allow more Guests into their theme parks. The park is currently operating at 25% capacity and has not made an official announcement that it will be increasing capacity at this time, but in the yellow tier, they are allowed to operate at 35% capacity.
