Universal Crowd Calendar Report – May 31 to June 6, 2015

Share This!

Last week, wait times at Universal Orlando Resort were well below what history would suggest for this time of year. Guests who visited Universal last week were treated to attractions with wait times 10 to 15 minutes lower than average for June. There were a few days where weather may have been a factor although we didn’t see weather affect other central Florida theme parks.

Let’s look at how the crowd levels stacked up each day last week on the TouringPlans.com Universal Orlando Resort Crowd Report:

A level ‘3’ at Islands of Adventure on a Sunday in early June is very rare – in fact it is the lowest crowd level we’ve seen since 2009 on a Sunday in June. Dudley Do-Right Ripsaw Falls had the highest average wait time at 34 minutes (predicted 31) which was one minute higher than the average at Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.

Monday’s crowd levels bounced back to levels more closely relating to what we’d expect this time of year. For comparison, Dragon Challenge averaged 29 minutes while on Sunday it averaged only 8 minutes.

Neither park could manage a crowd level above ‘5’ on our scale last Tuesday. That means average wait times like 62 minutes at Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem and 16 at Revenge of the Mummy.

A slight increase in wait times on Wednesday, enough to get within one index level of what the Universal Crowd Calendar predicted at both parks. Revenge of the Mummy averaged 19 minutes while Forbidden Journey averaged 33 (predicted 32).
