This pass can be purchased for either Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure, or both parks.  Pricing starts at $69.99 per person for 1 park and can change depending on the date you would like the pass.

Universal Unlimited Express Pass: The Unlimited Express Pass will allow you to skip the lines for each participating ride/attraction** an unlimited number of times. This pass can be purchased for Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure, or both parks. Pricing starts at $89.99+tax per person for 1 park and can change depending on the date you would like the pass.

***If you are looking into a Universal vacation package, Playtime Vacations highly suggests looking into a Premiere Resort. The three resorts in this category (Hard Rock, Portofino Bay and Royal Pacific) include the Unlimited Express Pass with your stay!
