Universal Orlando Resort’s road to recovery for this summer looks promising. During an online virtual conference call with NBCUniversal CEO, Jeff Shell more than 11 million people have visited the parks. Universal hasn’t seen those numbers since the parks reopening in June 2020. Of course, a huge part of this is that the resort will no longer have any capacity limitations. Shell is expecting a strong summer turnout.
“So people are are not only coming back to our theme park and enjoying the experience out of their house but they’re buying stuff. They’re buying Harry Potter wands and all sorts of things, so very pleased with how the theme park in Orlando is doing … and you know, we really have no capacity constraints there anymore and so the summer is looking pretty, pretty strong,”NBCUniversal CEO, Jeff Shell
The resort just recently opened up the fastest multi-launch roller coaster in Central Florida called the VelociCoaster. Located in the Jurassic Park area of Islands of Adventure this coaster should also help the attendance stay strong throughout the summer. Also for those that like to keep it slow, over at Universal Studios Florida and can check out the new “Dreamworks Destination” meet and greet area.
For those who wanna vacation to Universal Orlando, this summer guests will no longer need a temperature screening. Masks are no longer required indoors and outdoors for guests who are fully vaccinated. Even the social distancing has been reduced from 6-feet to 3-feet.
