Is the FlexTicket the Best Ticket for Your Family?

by Leap on January 30, 2012

If Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure SeaWorldare already on your list and you are thinking of adding SeaWorld, Aquatica and maybe even Wet 'n Wild, the Orlando FlexTicket may be just what you're looking for. Here is an overview to help you decide if the FlexTicket is the Best Ticket.

What is the FlexTicket?

The Orlando FlexTicket offers unlimited admission to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Wet 'n Wild, SeaWorld and Aquatica for 14 days. And by unlimited, we mean unlimited. If you wanted to, you could visit all 5 parks every day for 14 days straight.

The FlexTicket is the Best Ticket if:

  • You want the most flexibility at the 5 parks included on the ticket. (i.e. You don't want to worry about how many 'days' you've used on your ticket or whether you can visit more than one park in a day.)
  • You will be visiting those 5 parks at least once during your trip. If you were to buy single day tickets to each of the parks, the total would be more than the price of a FlexTicket AND you would only be able to visit each park one time.
  • There are several special events going on at the 5 parks while you will be here. Here's an example: The FlexTicket would allow you to visit Wet 'n Wild the first part of the day, then head over to Universal Studios that night for the Mardi Gras special event. The next day you could spend the morning at Aquatica, then go to SeaWorld that afternoon for Bands, Brew & BBQ.


What is the FlexTicket Plus?

The Orlando FlexTicket Plus offers unlimited admission to 6 parks: Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Wet 'n Wild, SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens for 14 days. We're not sure it's humanly possible, but if you wanted to you could visit all 6 parks every day for 14 days straight with the FlexTicket Plus.

The FlexTicket Plus is the Best Ticket if:

  • You are looking for a ticket that includesSheiKra at Busch Gardens Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Wet 'n Wild, SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens.
  • You want the flexibility of going to more than one park per day.
  • You will spend at least one day at five of those parks. Even if you never visited Wet 'n Wild, the FlexTicket Plus is still cheaper than buying single day tickets for the others.
  • There are special events happening at the parks while you will be here. Let's use the summertime as an example. Summer Concert Series at Universal Studios, Summer Nights at SeaWorld and Summer Nights at Busch Gardens all run concurrently. The FlexTicket Plus would give you the flexibility to attend them all.

Other important details...

  • Universal CityWalk Party Pass is included on the FlexTicket and FlexTicket Plus. The Party Pass entitles you to free admission to the paid entertainment venues at Universal CityWalk for the 14 days that your ticket is valid. Party Pass Venues: CityWalk's Rising Star, Red Coconut Club, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, Bob Marley - A Tribute to Freedom, the groove, Latin Quarter and Pat O'Brien's.
  • Parking is not included on the FlexTicket or FlexTicket Plus, but you will only have to pay once a day if you visit more than one park. Just save your receipt.
  • The FlexTicket and FlexTicket Plus do have an expiration date. They must be activated before the end of the year.

Happy Traveling!

my family is planning on visiting Orlando (and ALL the parks) at the end of December/beginning of January next year. If I purchase the Flex Pass, does is expire on December 31st or is it good for the entire two weeks (we are planning on arriving in Orlando December 28 and leaving January 13). Thanks I use your site and apps every time we are in Orlando!

Hi Louise,

You would need to purchase the 2015 Flex Ticket, which does not expire until Dec. 31, 2015.

If I purchase the flex tickets for the parks mentioned in the package,

1. Will it have access to all the rides in the parks?

2. Are the flex tickets 'Fast Pass' enabled?

Thanks in advance,



FrogBlog Feb 5, 2015 at 9:48 a.m.

Hi Pooja,

Yes all rides for the parks listed would be included. FastPass is only at Disney, and it is not included in the Flex Ticket, so you would not have access to that. However, you would have the option of adding on the Express Pass at Universal Orlando and the Quick Queue at SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens, which offer skip the lines access.

Keep hopping!

We were looking at the Orlando Flex Tickets Plus for the family but had a question what does it mean by unlimited express? Also can you get a bus only to Busch Gardens or will a bus take you to the other parks such as Sea World, etc...?

Hi April,

This ticket is a terrific value! I don't see a reference to Unlimited Express, but this is the skip-the-lines access Universal offers if you are staying at one of its deluxe on-site hotels: Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Hard Rock Hotel or Loews Portofino Bay Resort. You can get a free shuttle from SeaWorld to Busch Gardens Tampa with paid admission to Busch Gardens. Details here.

Keep hopping!

We are looking to purchase the Flex ticket. Express pass and Quick queue can they be purchased at the parks? We are not staying at one of Universal Studios resorts do you have to be staying there in order to purchase the slip the lines pass?

FrogBlog Mar 31, 2015 at 8:10 a.m.

Hi Jackie,

The Flex ticket is a great way value for longer stays. Yes, you can add Express Pass and Quick Queue at the parks, and no, you do not need to be staying on-site to do so. Unlimited Express is included for free for your entire party if you stay at a Universal deluxe hotel, and Quick Queue is free if you stay at an official SeaWorld hotel.

Keep hopping!
