Universal Hollywood extends its second-day-free offer

August 19, 2019, 1:52 PM · Universal Studios Hollywood has extended its "second day free" special, allowing visitors to buy these discounted tickets through Labor Day.

The deal adds a second day at Universal Studios Hollywood with the purchase of a designated one-day ticket and is valid until September 26. The big new attraction this summer at Universal is Jurassic World - The Ride, an update of the park's old Jurassic Park flume ride.

Starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the rethemed attraction... oh, who are we kidding? Yes, Pratt and Howard are on the ride in video form, but the real star of this production is the Mosasaurus, whose tank dominates the first act of the ride.

Jurassic World - The Ride
Wait for it....

With Jurassic World and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Studios Hollywood is the only theme park offering attractions based on these two popular entertainment franchises. While it's possible to hit up everything in the park in a single day, especially with a Universal Express ticket, adding a second day allows you to take in everything at a less-frenetic pace... and to hit up some favorites a second time. Check the details and see the other offers available for Universal Studios Hollywood, below.

Update: [Aug. 20] If you are more interested in a multi-day experience at Universal's multi-gate resort in Orlando, here's a reminder that our partner is offering a good deal for Universal Orlando tickets, too.

You might have read elsewhere that Universal Orlando is offering a new deal on multi-day tickets, starting this week. This is the same "get into Volcano Bay free" offer that we introduced to you earlier... just not playing up the Volcano Bay angle.

But I just priced the deal on our partner's website and on the Universal Orlando website (which does not include tax until you get to the checkout page, unlike our partner's site) and the same ticket ended up a few bucks less on our partner's site, so I hope that you will give it a look when comparing prices on Universal Orlando visits and vacations.

To be honest, USH is easy to visit in a single day. We were able to experience every attraction and show in the park (including multiple rides on Mummy, JW, and HPFJ), and still had time to spend almost 2 hours having an early dinner in CityWalk. While we did arrive at the park when it opened (we didn't have Early Entry), we saw everything in the park at a rather leisurely pace without UE, only utilizing the single rider lines for second and third times through.

If Universal is going to give you a second day free, I guess that's fine, but you'd probably be better off spending that day at another SoCal attraction. Personally, I'd probably get bored pretty fast on a second day at USH, and would not waste a second day here on a multi-day vacation to the area.

Shouldn’t this thread be full of posts declaring Universal Studios Hollywood’s new Jurassic World ride to be a ‘failure’ and ‘having to bribe guests to stay another day’ with ‘literally no one there’?...... ;) ;);)

If Jurassic World was the biggest expansion in the parks history you would definitely be getting those comments!

Absolutely agree...Very easy to do everything the park has to offer in a single day...

Neither Galaxy's Edge nor Jurassic World are failures. All though Jurassic World is just a ride and not a "land". It's also pretty much the same thing as the old one so I don't think even Universal expected hours long line ups like Harry Potter.

As for Galaxy's Edge Disney deserves the slow down for opening a half finished land. Their either very greedy to try and make more money while they finish the land or very smart knowing at lot of people would put off their trips until the land is finished. Seeing all the work they did in anticipation and blocking out the season passes I'm leaning towards the greed part. :)

Universal must be doing something right, because 10 years ago the deal they ran was "buy a day and get a year free", but now you only get one extra day free. So that's a good sign right?
