Bring in the New Year at Universal Studios Hollywood

This year, Universal Studios Hollywood will be ringing in the new year in style. For the first time, the park will be celebrating with a special New Year’s event, with park times extended to 1 a.m. The event will begin at 9 p.m., and guests will be invited to enjoy not only the park’s rides and attractions but also many special extras, including “a special park-wide countdown party featuring multiple entertainment hubs with DJs and live music, starting at 9:00 p.m.”

Here’s some more about what the evening will entail.

Universal Plaza, Simpsons Plaza located adjacent to [t]he Simpsons Ride and an area near Jurassic Park—The Ride, will transform into three uniquely-themed [sic] electrifying party hubs that will culminate simultaneously at midnight with a traditional New Year countdown and a spectacular fireworks display. Food and beverages, including specialty desserts, champagne, beer and wine, as well as 2018 memorabilia, will be available for purchase.



Don’t forget that the park is also celebrating Christmas, with its special Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter event. Read our review here. Find out more about the New Year event in the press release below, and don’t forget to tell us if you’re attending!
