A Bad Day at the Valet

Like other theme parks, Universal Studios Orlando offers guests valet parking. Guests can access the valet service as a premium option.

However, today was a highly unusual day for one guest and the team at the Valet Lot in Universal Studios Orlando. Unfortunately, a car burst into flames as a guest went to use the valet lot.

Disruptions To Park Guests

Due to safety concerns, the team at Universal shut down valet parking access from the road. The fire must be controlled before more guests can safely enter the lot.

Additionally, security prevented guests from exiting to the lot. This likely caused some guests delays while trying to get from here to there. However, safety comes first and foremost.

What We Know So Far

Fortunately, as far as we know, no one was injured in the incident! The team at Universal Studios Orlando should be commended for swift actions to keep theme park guests safe.
