    Mid-August is when schools start to go back in session, so it will be less crowded. By Late August, weekdays should be manageable again.

    Take advantage of the single rider lines, it will save you a ton of time! There’s no need to buy the Universal Pass if you just use single rider for every ride.

  7. 1.5
    Light Crowds?

    Don’t go in July! The summer is the most crowded time of the year at Universal. 1-2 hour long lines for everything.
