Universal Studios Orlando Complaint - A Great DISAPPOINTMENT - Orlando
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- The last time I went to Universal (Orlando) was 15 years ago with my young daughters. We stayed 2-3 days and had a great time. I wanted to share any part of that pleasure (this past February) with my good friend who had never visited any Florida Theme Park.
To my shock, the “bargain price” for a SINGLE day was $84...but I rationalized it could be worth it for a FULL day of fun…even if we were 57 & 64 years old and didn‘t enjoy roller coasters or other fast rides.
The disappointment continued as I found out my 2-3 favorite rides were now in the “new” Island Of Adventure section and all my other favorites, including the Animal Show, were still in Universal Park…and I had to decide which to choose as the “1-Day Hopper” ticket price was even more outrageous.
Because of the one positive thing, short lines, we were able to cover most of the fun stuff in a couple of hours...so were quickly looking for ways to waste time and justify being there for the full $84 day...and trying to find any additional value. This already-diminished value was further lessened when I discovered they even closed my favorite water ride (FOR ANNUAL MAINTENANCE!!!!!)...so my expenditure became even more of a loss.
I know you will survive without my attendance or recommendation and will also not offer any compensation so…enjoy your stringent policies and business decisions. I have been permanently “soured” away from Orlando.
