PHOTO REPORT: Universal Studios Hollywood 5/26/22 (Classic Monsters on the Prowl, Jurassic World Pass Member Magnet, a Chocolate Coke Float, and More)

Quiet on set; we’re ready to roll! We headed out to Universal Studios Hollywood today to try an ice cream float, check in on some Halloween Horror Nights construction and see what else is new. So come along to see everything we found at Universal Studios Hollywood in today’s photo report.

CityWalk Hollywood

Universal Cinema Minions Rise of Gru

Universal Cinema is now covered in a giant wrap for the new Minions film. Who else is excited for this?

Toothsome Towers wide CityWalk Hollywood

Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen is coming along and the two new towers out front keep on growing.

Entrance USH

From CityWalk, all guest traffic was stopped at arbitrarily defined increments and routed to the opposite side entrance. This is a normal practice that usually isn’t much of a big wait difference. But today…

Long security line ush

The line was almost 30 minutes longer on this side. So far back that the security area can’t even be seen in this photo. Guests were very upset and several got angry with security Team Members.

Universal Studios Logo Backpack 5 scaled

We found quite possibly the flimsiest backpack ever to grace Universal Studios Hollywood, as well as a ballcap.

USH Retro Merch ET BTTF 18 scaled

A new collection of retro merchandise recently debuted at Universal Studios Hollywood, and it’s not done yet. Now, we can add these late arrivals to the plethora.

BioSyn T Shirt USH

Jurassic World: Dominion is set to release soon, and we’ve been seeing lots of new merchandise for the film, including this recently released shirt and shot glass, seen above and below.

Waterworld HHN Const

Not a lot change is visible at the Halloween Horror Nights maze construction in the WaterWorld queue. The surrounding walls are too high and to well covering the action to see much.

Parisian Courtyard HHN const

The Parisian courtyard HHN construction, however, can be seen sticking up above the walls.

While we were checking in on the haunt construction, two monsters escaped and started causing havoc in the area. How perfectly Halloween.

Grad Bash Photo Op

Some of the Grad Bash photo ops have been left out for day guests to come and visit.

This beautiful rose backdrop is a cool, unique photo opportunity that we couldn’t pass up.

Grad Bash has also come to the restaurants. Here at Mel’s, we found a themed cookie available to day guests.

We also found a new Chocolate Coca-Cola Float which will be a Universal Studios Pass Member exclusive treat for June. We couldn’t pass up the chance to try it today and you can see our full video review on our YouTube channel, or by clicking on the video below:

Jurassic World Splashdown
Universal Pass Member magnet USH

For Universal Studios Pass Members, a new magnet featuring Jurassic World is available in the Studio Store. We couldn’t resist the opportunity to come down and take some shots of it near the ride, and maybe cool off a bit with a splash.

Thanks for riding along with us on our photo report from Universal Studios Hollywood. That’s a wrap!
