The cost of a peak-demand daily ticket for Universal Studios Hollywood was boosted over the weekend to $129 from $120 at the front gate. Visitors can save up to $20 off that price by booking tickets online. California residents can save up to $30 off the gate price with an online purchase.

The hike comes only months before the park opens a new attraction based on the animated characters from the 2008 DreamWorks movie “Kung Fu Panda.”

The new attraction, set to open this summer, is expected to use projection mapping, 360-degree surround-sound audio and physical effects such as water and wind; seats will pivot and swivel in time with the action projected in front of the guests.
