It’s time for March’s photo update around CityWalk and Universal Studios Hollywood! After recently visiting Universal’s new Taste of Universal event, we take a look inside the park for the first time in nearly a year, in addition to sharing a handful of CityWalk updates.
Let’s get started!
Park Update Index
With our return to the theme park came better views of the construction on Hollywood’s iteration of Super Nintendo World. Visible from the overlook near Super Silly Fun Land is what appears to be a tunnel entrance into the land, as well as the vibrant green mountains surrounding the area.
Indoor dining has returned at a limited capacity at CityWalk Hollywood. While no new sit-down restaurants have re-opened recently, a few limited tables are available indoors for guests who would prefer to eat inside.
Karl Strauss Brewing Company continues to have its signage removed, though still with no announcement of its future replacement.
Discounts continue at all of the Universal-owned stores both inside and outside of the park.
The CityWalk Universal Studio Store now is selling some Wizarding World of Harry Potter merchandise.
Taste of Universal continues to run weekly on Thursdays through Sundays. For a comprehensive review of the event, check out our recent article.
A new photo stand has appeared outside of the exit for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, indicating that guests will now have an on-ride photo taken of them that they will have the option to purchase.
The in-park Cinnabon has officially been converted into the City Snack Shop, and Minion Café has replaced Gru’s Lab Café in Pets Place.
Some of the Halloween Horror Nights mazes built in 2020 are still standing now, including those located in the WaterWorld queue and the Revenge of the Mummy: The Ride queue.
Since The Walking Dead Attraction closed in March 2020, it appears to have temporarily been incorporated into Pets Place as a subway station façade.
Construction continues on some minor projects along Universal Hollywood Drive.
The tram transporting guests to CityWalk from the bottom of Universal Hollywood Drive has now returned to operation.
Since the park finally allowed guests in for the first time in nearly a year, we thought we would showcase some photos from our recent visit to Taste of Universal.
That’ll do it for this month’s photo update. As always, we wish you well and thank you for following our continuing coverage of Universal Parks and Resorts.
