Universal Orlando to reopen parks on June 5

ORLANDO, FLA. (WSVN) - Universal Orlando has announced a reopening date for its parks after being forced to close for months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The theme park said it will begin welcoming guests back to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay starting June 5.

However, things will be different for guests when they return.

“This carefully managed reopening comes with stringent new health, safety and hygiene procedures in place,” the park wrote on its website.

The use of face masks will be required to enter the parks.

Floor markings across the park will help guests keep their distance from one another.

  • Universal Studios: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., daily
