Universal applies for a queue management/ride reservation system patent


Could we be seeing some changes to Universal’s Express Pass in the future?  If this new patent that Universal has applied for comes true, then we could be seeing some.  Parkscope has uncovered that Universal has applied for a patent that sounds very similar to Disney’s new Fastpass+ system, that uses a time reservation system online to return to a specific show/ride.

Only time will tell if this patent comes to life, or is just another patent to sit around and collect dust.  If we hear more, we will bring it to you.

Until then, you can view the patent in its entirety here.
