Guests will experience a high-octane journey that fuses an original storyline and incredible ride technology with everything that fans love about the films-popular characters, exhilarating environments, nonstop action and, of course, high-speed cars.

Universal Studios Hollywood announced earlier this week that they are restructuring their annual passes and raising the price.

The California Resident Pass for $139 allows 182 days of access to the park and the California Resident Plus Pass for $199 allows 244 days after blackout dates.

The Gold Pass, available for $299, includes 312 select days of admission.

With these passes, guests can enjoy newsletter updates, exclusive preview event invitations, discounts on food and merchandise, but no free parking, which will set you back $18 a visit.
