With California’s theme parks reopening after a year of closures, there are some new guidelines in place.
Similar to Florida theme parks, there are health and safety measures like mandatory masks, temperature checks, physical distancing, and more. In addition to these, only California residents have been allowed to visit the major theme parks…until now!
California recently relaxed its guidelines on out-of-state visitors, and Universal Studios Hollywood has followed suit. According to the park’s website, out-of-state visitors are now welcome, IF they are fully vaccinated.
For these guests, tickets must be purchased at the gate (not available online) and you must be able to show proof of vaccination and a photo ID. Tickets are subject to availability, so it’s recommended that you check the ticket store online before your visit to make sure that there are still spots open. Ticket pricing is the same for out-of-state visitors as what is listed online for California residents.
Universal also notes this important detail on the website: “Government guidelines requiring out-of-state visitors to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 in order to visit the park do not contain an exception for children under age 16, who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19. Therefore, at this time, we can only welcome out-of-state visitors age 16 and over.”
