Universal Studios Hollywood began welcoming back pass holders Thursday, one day before its official reopening following a yearlong COVID-19-related closure.

The theme park first opened for a preview day just for Annual and Season Pass members, but all other guests will be able to visit starting Friday.

It won’t be the same: some attractions will stay closed and the theme park is limiting capacity to comply with state-mandated restrictions. Tickets are also limited to California residents only.
