People often wonder whether or not they actually need Express Pass to skip the main lines when they visit Universal Orlando. Universal Express Pass can be added to your trip to Universal Orlando, but it is a bit of an expense. Prices are relatively high compared to Genie+ in Walt Disney World, and they vary depending on the park you want to visit and how many times you want to ride the included attractions.

A pass for JUST Universal Studios starts at $89.99 per person per day for a single ride on each included attraction, and the price goes up to $119.99 for unlimited rides. Additionally, if you purchase the passes on the day of your visit, the prices may fluctuate even more! It can go as high as $349.99. If you want to go park-to-park, it will cost between $99 and $379.99 per person per day!

However, if you are on a once-in-lifetime trip and are strapped for time, you might want to use Express Pass! In fact, you might even want to stay at a Premier Hotel because one of the perks is free Universal Unlimited Express passes. And now, the value has improved because a new ride is included!

Now, Universal Orlando’s newest attraction has been added to Express Pass. You can use the add-on to skip the main line at Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast.

This amazing new attraction JUST opened, and already it is available for use on Express Pass. You can read all about this unique interactive attraction right HERE.

Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast is now included on Express Pass.

It is not entirely surprising that it has become available since the ride was built to include an Express Pass entrance. However, it is a little surprising how quickly it is being offered.

In fact, it probably leaves Universal fans “What about Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure?” It opened years ago, and there is still no sign of Express Pass for the exceedingly popular attraction. Hagrid’s is one of only two attractions that is not included on Express Pass. The other, of course, is Pteranodon Flyers.
