When it comes to spending the day at an amusement park, especially if you are going in the middle of Summer, the lines can be extremely long and the park can be really packed. This is why you will want to make sure that you are as efficient as you can be so that you can have the most fun and ride as many rides and attractions that you possibly can all day. Here a few tips that I have found work for me to save time and get in the most rides at Universal Studios.
-Make a Plan of Action: The first thing I do when I get to the park is get myself a park map and make a plan of action. I look through all of the attractions and circle the ones that I know I want to ride and then see where they are in the park. I then make a little bit of a schedule to plan out what rides I am going to ride when depending on where they are next to one another and I also take into account line times.
-Ride on Off Times: I would highly recommend not riding during the typical times of the day. For example, take an early or late lunch instead of eating around 12:00 like everyone else in the park will be doing. While everyone else is eating their lunch, you can ride some of the rides that are typically longer lines and you won’t have to wait as long as you would normally.
-Do the Long Lines First: If you know certain rides will have a long line no matter what time of the day it is or when you go, do those rides first. This way you get all of the really long lines out of the way and you will have the rest of the day to breeze through the shorter lines.
-Try the Single Riders Line: A lot of the rides throughout Universal Studios offer a separate line for single riders and this is where you will save a whole bunch of time.To be honest, going in the single riders line chances are you will still be close to the rest of your part on the ride you just may not be sitting directly next to one another. If you aren’t worried about sitting RIGHT next to each other, the single riders line will save you a bunch of time.
Use these tips and trust me, you will have time to ride everything that you wanna do in the park and you will do it as efficient as you possibly can. If you’re taking a trip to Universal Studios, keep these tips in mind and you will make the most of your trip.
