As the time for the 18 month annual pass deal draws to a close (4/4) at Universal, I wondered what are your thoughts on the very strict ‘nothing on the ride’ policy that they enforce? I would love 18 months for 12 months, but at a bare minimum I have to take my car keys into the park, and having to put those in a locker just because I want to ride the Hulk, in all honesty puts me off buying the pass.
A lot of you most probably go to the park way more than me as you are here on vacation, but I remember when I rode the old dueling dragons on the last day before it closed, I was irked by the fact I had to put my stuff into a stupid little locker. Of all the parks I visit on my travels, I don’t know of anywhere else that forces me to take everything out of my pockets. Do you guys know of anywhere else ??
It irks me more because I have 2 pairs of cargo shorts that are my roller coaster shorts …. honest :) One has zippered pockets and the other has 2 clip-button pockets, and nothing ….. nothing !! has ever got even close to falling out of those. And we are talking about some serious rides at parks across the US, and in the UK.
Is Universal’s policy a little too strict …. what do you think ??
Even though the 18 month deal is closing next week, I also bring it up with Hagrid’s ride opening in mind as well.
