Remember last month when Universal Studios said they would offer discounts for any tickets for off-season that were pre-ordered? Well that great gesture was canceled out this past weekend when Universal Studios Hollywood, without warning, raised their prices 20%.
Universal Studios Hollywood is not the only theme park to raise their prices, a while ago Disney announced its new tier pricing, however now Universal Studios Hollywood is the highest price theme park at $90 for low-demand days to $115 for on peak-demand.
There are a lot of people saying the price raise has a lot to do with the new Harry Potter attractions noting when a similar attraction opened in Islands of Adventures in Orlando the two-day two park ticket price went up 36%, and brought sales at the park up 20%. This also seems to be following Disneyland which upped prices once Cars Land was open.
A spokesman for Universal Studios said the price increase is consistent with what the park is offering.
