Universal Studios Hollywood has brought back another Annual Pass to its offerings that Guests can purchase. The Universal Hollywood website now lists the Platinum Pass, in addition to its California Neighbor Annual Pass, Silver Annual Pass, and Gold Annual Pass.
The Platinum Annual Pass comes at the incredibly affordable rate of $19 per month after an initial $249 down payment. The down payment is higher than the other three Annual Passes that Universal Studios Hollywood offers, but that is because the Platinum Pass has some pretty amazing perks.
The biggest perk to come with Universal Hollywood’s Platinum Pass is that it comes with Universal Express. The Universal Express Pass allows Guests to go in an Express Line at each attraction, much like a Disney FastPass.
A Guest with an Express Pass is allowed to use the pass once per ride, per day. The Universal Express Pass also allows Guests to have preferred seating at one seated show of their choice per day — including WaterWorld and Animal Actors.
The other major perk is one that is sure to appeal to a lot of Universal Hollywood Guests. Guests who purchase the Platinum Pass will also be given one complimentary ticket to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights. The scare fest will return this year, and Guests with the Platinum Pass will be able to select which night they would like to go to from a list of selected dates.
While Universal Hollywood has not shared too many details on what will be at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, it has shared the following information on its website:
Prepare for the scariest, most intense Halloween event in Southern California created by the sickest and most twisted minds in horror and the movie studio that invented the horror film genre.
The event features terrifying mazes that bring to life the most frightening films and television shows ever. The thrills continue with our high-energy live entertainment and terrifying scare zones awaiting you around every dark corner.
The Universal Studios Hollywood Platinum Pass offers a number of other perks — including no blackout dates, discounts on food and merchandise, and free general parking before 6 p.m.
