Universal Studios is a working film and television studio as well as a theme park. Whether you like movies or thrilling rides, you will find something exciting here. This year the park, which is constantly upgrading itself, added the long-anticipated Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction.
The park, as well as many rides, shows and attractions, is accessible to guests in wheelchairs. Universal Studios publishes a detailed guide for guests with disabilities, which outlines each attraction and ride.
All restrooms are accessible, and there are companion restrooms at each First Aid station.
Wheelchairs can be rented for $15 a day, and electric scooters for $60 a day inside the park entrance, across from the Universal Studios store.
For those who are deaf or hard of hearing, assistive listening devices are available for free at Guest Relations, and sign language interpretation for various shows can be arranged one week in advance, at no additional cost, by calling 1-800-UNIVERSAL or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some attractions are equipped with closed captioning; these are detailed in the guide.
Attractions scripts are available in Braille at Guest Services, for no fee.
Service animals are permitted, but there are a few attractions, listed in the guide, that cannot accommodate animals. Oxygen tanks may not be taken on certain rides.
The main parking area includes an accessible section for vehicles with valid permits. Universal studios is also served by public transportation, including Metro trains and buses, which are accessible.
