Best Tips to Rock the Universe at Universal Orlando
Rock the Universe 2019 was filled with a lot of fun and a lot of changes, with a new date slot to start. And one question that kept coming up after my Best Rock the Universe Tips post – is it really worth going to Universal Orlando’s Rock the Universe?
In my opinion, everyone needs to go at least once! This one-of-a-kind event features some of the best theme park offerings in the world, only found at Universal Orlando Resort. But need a few more reasons? Let me name my favorites with these best tips to Rock the Universe at Universal Orlando.
Grab Universal Orlando Tickets for Less
Lower prices, more options! The great thing about Rock the Universe is that ticket prices start lower than usual 1-day theme park tickets. This is a great way to experience the best of Universal Orlando without the heavy price tag. And with multiple deals to grab the best bang for your buck, you can really make a whole weekend out of this rocking experience at not just one park – but all 3! Experience Volcano Bay, Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios with these great ticket deals:
- 1 night starting as low as $68.99
- 2 nights starting as low as $108.99
- Multiple theme park ticket options including 3-park (with Volcano Bay) and 2-park (with Islands of Adventure) tickets
- And group rates for 10 or more
Score Early Park Entry
While Universal Studios closes at 6 pm that night, Rock the Universe ticket holders can actually get in early – at 4 pm. That’s an extra two hours at the park to ride more rides, take pictures, eat all of the things and enjoy the park as it empties out for the night. That 4-6 pm time frame is also the perfect opportunity to get on one of the more popular rides with less wait time.
Enjoy Live Concerts All Weekend Long
Love live music? One of the best perks of Rock the Universe is the live concerts all weekend long. Over 20 bands on 3 stages over 2 nights. And with exclusive autograph sessions, candlelight ceremony on Saturday and access 2 worship services on Sunday, there’s more reasons than ever to rock out at Rock the Universe.
2019 Rock the Universe concerts included Big Daddy Weave, Matthew West, Skillet, Crowder, and more of your favorite Christian artists. I can’t wait to see the 2020 Rock the Universe concert lineup!
Get Exclusive Access to the Best Rides & Attractions
Rock the Universe rides – need we say more? Less crowds and more thrills, Rock the Universe offers some of the best rides and attractions, with access to only event ticket holders. Check out all of the Universal Studios rides that are open during Rock the Universe:

Take Advantage of Universal Express Pass Savings
Universal Express passes are amazing – but let’s face it, price fluctuations and crowd calendars can make this skip-the-line pass expensive during normal park hours. Only during this event can guests have the ultimate access to the best Rock the Universe Express pass deals. 1 ride is $19.99. The whole night is $29.99. You do the math.
Create The Best Memories at a One-of-a-Kind Event
From youth group visits in my teens to now date nights with my husband, some of my favorite memories are Rock the Universe memories. From special photo opportunities (Diagon Alley with NO crowds, say what?), to eating all of the things, to riding our first ever Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, we have laughed, cried, and belted out our favorite songs together at this one-of-a-kind event. There’s nowhere else in the world to experience the best in Christian music and all of your favorite Universal Orlando attractions.
