Universal Change Expiry Date Of The 2 Park Bonus Ticket 2016

Hey Thrill Seekers,

As most of you will already know Wet N’ Wild will be officially closing at the end of the year. ūüôĀ With that in mind Universal decided last year that all Universal tickets would expire on the 31/12/16, this was to prevent any misunderstanding with the aforementioned closure.

Universal Gobe

Although we could see the logic there it did mean those who had purchased a 2 park ticket around Christmas time were potentially going to miss out on some days.

So we were glad to see that Universal have today changed their stance on this please see the statement below;

I’m pleased to confirm that, effective immediately, the expiry date of the 2016 2-Park Bonus ticket has been extended from 31 December 2016 to 13 January 2017.¬†

The 2016¬†2-Park Bonus Ticket entitles one (1) guest admission to Universal Studios Florida¬ģ, Universal‚Äôs Islands of Adventure¬ģ,¬†and Universal CityWalk¬ģ on all days during a fourteen (14) consecutive day period which includes the first day any portion of the¬†ticket is used and will have to be activated on or before 31 December 2016.¬†¬†

Guests activating their 2016 2-Park Bonus Ticket on 31 December 2016 will be able to utilize their ticket until 13 January 2017 included. 

The expiration date of all 2016 2-Park Bonus Tickets sold prior to this extension have already been updated. No action is required on your behalf as these tickets will automatically work at the turnstile post 31 December 2016 (provided they have been activated on or before this date)

Well done Universal, especially including those who have already purchased tickets, with the opening of Skull Island: Reign of Kong this summer the Universal 2 park ticket is the hottest ticket around.

Please note: The following tickets also include the 2 park universal ticket and therefore will be included in the above announcement;

  • Orlando Passport
  • Disney Universal Switch Ticket
  • Orlando Passport Mini
  • 5 Park Orlando¬†Switch Ticket
  • Orlando Park Hopper

We’ll be updating the website and iPhone app shortly to express this change.

Smiles included…

3 Famous Drinks You Just Gotta Sup at Universal Orlando

Hi Thrill Seekers,

If you’re like me (a Simpsons & Potter nerd) then you’ll be more than interested in getting your chops around these little beauties. Here are the top 3 most famous beverages available at Universal Orlando.

Duff Beer

duff-beer

If you’ve seen the Simpsons you’ll be well aware that Homer’s favorite pastime is to sup a nice cool glass of Duff beer while complaining about the wife and kids. Now you can do the same…except i’d leave out the complaining about the wife and kids bit since they will probably be with you at the time ūüôā

Duff Beer is now available from Moe’s Tavern in Springfield USA at Universal Studios. I have read a few reports on this beer and by all accounts it actually a really decent beverage. Brewed by the Florida Beer Company located in Melbourne FL this beer is set to become a winner.

Prices are as follows;

Duff Beer on tap – 20oz in a disposable cup is $7.25
Duff Beer on tap – 23oz souvenir cup $9.25, refills cost just $6.50.

Available in Duff and Duff Lite this beer is nothing short of an icon!

The Flaming Moe

flaming-moe

The Flaming Moe is a non alcoholic cocktail served at Moe’s Tavern located at Universal Studios Orlando. Apparently its a fruit based cocktail which tastes a lot like orange soda. The drink itself comes in a glass which has a secret compartment at the base which houses dry ice – this makes the drink look like its bubbling when served – very clever indeed!

FACT Alert: Ah, but do you know the legend of the Flaming Moe? In 1991, episode 45 of the Simpsons, Homer tells Moe Szyslak of a secret alcoholic cocktail called a ‘Flaming Homer’ which includes cough medicine and fire – Moe steals the recipe and starts selling it in his Tavern but calls it a ‘Flaming Moe’

Prices are as follows;

Flaming Moe $7.99 – Signature Specialty Drink of Springfield

Butterbeer

butter-beer

Butter Beer available at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Islands of Adventure.

For all you Harry Potter fans out there Butterbeer is obviously a given when it comes to famous Orlando brews. Probably the most sought after beverage at Universal, Potter fans make a beeline to grab a sup. Its not surprising that this beverage is so successful given the amount of effort put into producing it. Did you know that it took the Universal team almost 3 years to perfect the taste? which incidentally had to be cleared by J.K. Rowling herself.

Actually we have a very simple Butter Beer recipe that you might want to try at home if you’re not going to be in Orlando anytime soon. Click here

Prices are as follows;

A Butterbeer will cost around $5.00. You can also buy a souvenir mug for $10.00

So there you have it Thrill Seekers 3 awesome beverages for you to add to your itinerary the next time you are lucky enough to find yourself ¬†in Universal Resort Orlando. Speaking of fining yourself there, you’ll probably need a ticket to get in – here is the ticket information you’ll need.

Universal parks are available with the following tickets from OrlandoAttractionTickets.couk;

If any of you have already tried these fine beverages please leave a comment and let us know what you thought ūüôā

Thanks for reading,
