Universal Orlando has raised the price of a one-day, single-park ticket to $92 (Dh338). The price increase, up from $89, was brought into effect the past weekend.

Single-day admission for both Universal parks — Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure — went from $124 to $128. Similar increases were applied to multiday passes.

Universal spokesman Tom Schroder believes that the guests continue to feel the theme parks offer great entertainment at great value, with some options as low as about $42 per day.

A new ride based on the Transformers toy and film franchise is set to open next month. The park is also expanding its Wizarding World of Harry Potter next year with a new area based on the books’ fictional scenes in Diagon Alley and London.
