If you’re visiting the Universal Studios theme park during the summer months then it’s a good idea to pack and wear a sunhat to protect your head, face and neck from the hot sun.
Hats can be worn on selected rides at the Universal Studios theme parks. However, you may be asked to, or wish to remove your hat before going on certain rides within the park.
This is predominantly because hats can come off during the ride and pose a health and safety risk to you and others – not to mention the fact you’ve then lost your hat until at least the end of the day.
Loose items such as hats can be left with a non-rider or stored in a locker which is available at the entrance to most attractions.
Where you are required to store loose items when going on a ride, lockers are provided for free for the duration of the wait time and the ride.
Leaving your belongings in the locker for longer than this set duration will come at a cost (which will vary depending on the size of the locker).
Despite the occasion hassle, in our opinion, it’s still well worth wearing a hat to the Universal parks, especially in the summertime!
