Who is eligible to attend Universal's Gradventure?
Graduating middle school students and their chaperones may attend this event. It is up to the discretion of your school administration to allow students to bring dates who are not graduating. All participants must be either students or chaperones from your attending public, private or home school. Schools may bring their junior class officers to give them a preview of the Gradventure experience so they can help promote it to their class next year. Universal Orlando's Gradventure is a school-sanctioned event.
Are there any special responsibilities for our chaperones during Universal's Gradventure?
Yes, at least one of your chaperones must be on duty throughout the entire event. Your head chaperone is required to check in immediately upon arrival. Please provide up to three cell phone numbers of chaperones attending the event. Please be sure chaperones check cell phones frequently and program phones to both vibrate and audibly ring. Chaperones may not leave the event until park close except for an emergency. Chaperones are required to make sure that students follow the no smoking, no alcohol and no drugs policies 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 to Universal's Gradventure?
Yes. One complimentary chaperone ticket is provided for every ten (10) student tickets purchased.
What kind of security will be present?

How do we know specifically where to arrive and depart from the event?
Four weeks prior to the event, you will be sent an information packet including everything there is to know about your Gradventure experience including specific arrival and departure locations.
What is there for chaperones to do?
In addition to the free admission, chaperones can skip the regular lines* at participating rides and attractions with complimentary Universal Express℠ Unlimited ride access! Plus, chaperones enjoy special VIP extras including snacks and drinks all night long, giveaways and games throughout the night, and the ever-popular chaperone-only lounges.
Are there restrictions on prescription medication?
Any prescription medication must be in the original prescription container and only the dosage needed for the student's visit to Orlando is allowed. The student's name must be printed on the label and a valid picture ID is required. Also, students may carry inhalers, EpiPens, insulin and other necessary medications, but proper prescription documentation is required.
What if I have a student/chaperone arriving late or needs early departure from the event?
Since Universal Orlando’s Gradventure is a special after-hours school event, we do have a “lock-down” policy. Due to the “lock-down” policy and safety considerations, everyone, including Chaperones, will have to stay in the parks until the event ends at 12:00 am. Late arrivals of students or chaperones must be pre-approved by your school’s Head Chaperone and by the Gradventure Team. In the event that a student and/or chaperone must leave early, he or she must have approval from the group’s head chaperone. If you have a circumstance where you have a late arrival/early departure, please contact the Gradventure Team at least three days before your visit date at 407-363-8223.
