Universal Studios Hollywood has been raring to go as Covid infection rates have fallen in California. The park debuted its “Taste of Universal” in mid-March. With rides still closed at that point, it offered visitors weekend access to select themed areas for shopping and eating.
When it reopened April 16 at 25% capacity, Universal Studios Hollywood did not allow out-of-state guests, whether fully vaccinated or not. On April 28, weeks before Disneyland, the park began allowing non-residents who can show proof of vaccination and provide valid ID to buy tickets.
Universal Studios Hollywood offers such rides and attractions as Jurassic World-The Ride, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash! and Despicable Me Minion Mayhem.
The Studio Tour takes guests through an authentic production studio, home to outdoor sets and soundstages used in more than 8,000 movies and television shows, as well as such movie-based rides as King Kong 360 3D and Fast & Furious-Supercharged.
