HOW DO I PURCHASE TICKETS TO GRADVENTURE?
First your school’s head chaperone for the event must reserve your school, visit universalorlandoyouth.com/gradventure and fill out a reservation form or call 1-800-YOUTH15. Once your reservation has been processed, a representative will contact you regarding admission and any other questions you may have.
WHY SHOULD WE ATTEND GRADVENTURE?
Gradventure is the ultimate middle school celebration for graduating students, with cutting-edge rides and attractions, dance parties and more – it's a 2-park party that only we can throw! Plus, we let chaperones in on the fun with FREE, EXCLUSIVE Universal Express access* – so you can skip the regular lines at most rides and attractions; the popular chaperone-only lounge; and more.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO ATTEND?
Graduating middle school students and their chaperones may attend only through a pre-reserved school group. All participants must be either chaperones or students attending public, private, or home school.
ARE THERE ANY RESPONSIBILITIES FOR OUR CHAPERONES DURING GRADVENTURE?
Yes, you must have a head chaperone on duty throughout the entire event. Your head chaperone is required to check in immediately upon arrival and provide two cell phone numbers for use in case of a student issue. We ask that the head chaperone check their cell phone frequently and put the phone on both vibrate and audible ring. We will not use your cell phone number after Gradventure.
All chaperones must stay in the park until Gradventure is over, except in case of an emergency and be at least 21 years of age.
Chaperones are required to make sure that students follow the no-smoking, no-alcohol and no-drugs policy throughout the entire evening. This is considered a school event, so all school rules and regulations should be enforced by all chaperones.
DO OUR CHAPERONES RECEIVE COMPLIMENTARY ADMISSION?
One complimentary chaperone ticket, including dinner, is provided to the school for every 10 student tickets purchased. Additional chaperone tickets can be purchased at the student ticket price.
WHAT KIND OF SECURITY WILL BE PRESENT?
All bags, pockets and other items are checked for any illegal substances and weapons. For everyone's security, metal detectors are used to check guests at the event entrance. All questionable items will be confiscated at the gate. Security is visibly present throughout the park during the event.
IS THERE A DRESS CODE?
Students should wear comfortable clothing that lets them have fun while still looking their best. It is highly recommended that students wear matching, brightly-colored shirts with their school clearly identified on them.
