Universal Studios Hollywood is inching closer and closer to reopening. After being given new guidelines by the State of California that theme parks can open on April 1, it appears that Universal plans on reopening their Hollywood park sometime in April.
Comcast’s Chief Financial Officer, Mike Cavanagh, stated during an investor conference that they were looking to reopen the park next month – but no official date was given.
Recently, a newsletter was also sent out to passholders looking to welcome them back to the park soon, stating; “We are thrilled to share the good news with you that Universal Studios Hollywood has received the green light to reopen soon by the State of California.”
Universal Studios Hollywood remains the only Universal park that hasn’t reopened since the pandemic closures last March. CityWalk reopened last June but has dealt with temporary adjustments and closures based on California’s stay-at-home guidelines.
Last week, Universal Studios Hollywood announced a new “Taste of Universal” food festival beginning March 12 – which marks the first time guests will be able to set foot inside the park in nearly a year.
It is expected once the park reopens, that they will follow protocols that have been in use at the other theme parks – implementing enhanced safety policies and procedures, including sanitization, required mask use, temperature screening, and physical distance measures.
