In regards to the After 2pm Day/Night Combo ticket, is there any way to possibly combine that with a VIP front of the line pass?

At least there is finally confirmation they are shutting down much of the park at 6pm. It would be good to have a gate A option for the day/night ticket.

I'm trying to plan my trip but not sure how to go about buying my front of the line pass. I want to do the day/night combo for Saturday October 1st, which is $99. But then the front of the line ticket is $180 and says it includes admission into HHN. But it doesn't include admission during the day time? I need an option where I can buy the day/night combo AND front of the line pass for HHN. I can't find it, though. Last year I bought a HHN ticket online, but didn't buy a front of the line pass till we were at the park. And lucky for us we barely managed to get them before they sold out. I don't want to cut it that close again. Any suggestions?

You should enter the park for day ops and immediately go to the Universal Box Office to upgrade your night time ticket. Doesn't look like they have a combo FOL.

I am thinking really hard. Do I really want to pay for the after 2 ticket? Is it really worth it for me as I have done the potter stuff in fla. Is the tram worth the additional 40.00 dollars?

^If you have never done it before, I'd say yes. There's a reason it's been around for 100 years, and it's a totally unique one of a kind attraction not in Florida.

Tough call. For me it wouldn't be — even if I'd never seen it before. We always ride it when we're there, but aside from the show buildings scattered throughout, it really is a tourist thing more than a thrill ride — one that offers a glimpse into the film industry (and does it very well). If you're local to the area, it feels a bit redundant — like taking one of those star tours buses around Mulholland or something. The King Kong section is good, and the Fast and Furious section is similar (although I prefer the Kong thing), but $40 would be hard to justify. I'm glad it's not an upcharge attraction at the park, but the situation you're in has basically made it an upcharge attraction for you by the sounds of it. If you love TV and movies and have never spent much time in Hollywood, it'll hold more appeal than just the shows stages but $40 is steep.

I would say its worth it because you won't ever have another opportunity to see the studio tour for that cheap AND you'll be in the park before the rest of the early entry crowd (which means first dibs on the mazes they open early).
