Located in the Hollywood area of Universal Studios across from the 5&10, this year’s Summer Tribute Store has transformed into “The Tribute Store Plaza,” a delightfully nostalgic 1980s shopping mall. Inside, you’ll find three immersive “mega” rooms each offering a unique throwback experience: the Mega Video Rental, where the shelves are stocked with VHS classics; the retro Mega Castle Arcade, filled with the beeps and buzzes of vintage arcade games; and the majestic Tribute Theatre, echoing the grand movie palaces of yesteryears.

As you explore, immerse yourself in a space brimming with special props, interactive photo ops, and countless Easter eggs celebrating iconic films like Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Jaws, and Shrek. Each nook and cranny of the store is designed to evoke memories and create new ones, perfect for fans eager to relive these timeless stories.


The Tribute Store isn’t just about nostalgia—it’s also a treasure trove of collectibles and apparel. Dive into a colorful new Shrek collection, gear up with E.T. inspired outdoor accessories, grab ghostly goods from Ghostbusters, and deck out your home with nautical pieces from Jaws. And there’s more on the horizon: later this summer, the store will feature interactive bubble wands inspired by DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, Illumination’s Minions, and Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World. These magical wands will interact not only with each other but also with elements of the upcoming Universal Mega Movie Parade, set to debut on July 3.
