Universal Studios Hollywood has revealed that they will be allowing vaccinated out-of-state guests to visit its theme park.
An update published on the Universal website states that “new government guidelines now allow us to invite out-of-state visitors who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.”
This comes as California officials announced last week that theme parks can allow fully vaccinated out-of-state guests to their parks.
Non-California residents who wish to visit the park must bring proof of COVID-19 vaccination and a photo ID as they will need to be presented at the front gate tickets booth prior to purchasing a ticket.
A vaccination card, photo of vaccination card that includes the name of a person, type of vaccine, and date administered will be accepted as proof.
Documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider that shows at least two weeks have passed since receipt of the second dose or single-dose vaccine is also valid proof.
However, since those under the age of 16 are not yet eligible for vaccination, they will not be allowed admittance to the park.
Out-of-state guests are not able to purchase their tickets online but only at the Front Gate. Universal has assured guests that the pricing will be the same as online ticket pricing for California residents.
Tickets are also subject to availability and will not be available to purchase when the park sells out.
Universal, therefore, recommends that guests visit their ticket store before leaving for the park to check if the visit date is shown as “Sold Out”.
