Last year was a record date for people booking RIP tours! So-much-so that Team Members were drafted in from all over the resort to train up as tour guides just to meet the massive demand.
HHNU has also been inundated with people writing in asking us when the tours go on sale, and although Universal hasn’t officially announced the date, we have had it leaked to us that the general public booking of these exclusive tours go on sale on 17th May (they are already on sale for package holders). As we say, this is just a leak – Universal may bring this forward or start selling them later than the date we have received – though we were right about the general tickets release date!
