Universal Studios™ Orlando and Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ wrap up the school year in style when they host Gradventure 2022- an end-of-year celebration JUST for middle school students!  Both parks are open for students to have the times of their lives!

What is Gradventure 2022?

Middle school student groups from across the country are invited to an unforgettable late-night party at Universal Studios™ Orlando.   It features today’s hottest music throughout the parks, tons of dancing, and high-energy coasters.  Students also get exclusive access to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, exciting rides and attractions, and mouthwatering munchies.

Students can hop safely between the parks via dedicated crossings as their exciting night unfolds.

What are the 2022 dates?

Hot off the presses!  Gradventure 2022 dates have just been released!  

May 6, 13, 20, 2022 from 7:00 PM until Midnight

Who can attend?

Students and chaperones of the attending middle school are welcome to attend. Outside guests will not be permitted.

Is it safe?

An extensive security check is required for all participants including metal detectors and bag/pocket checks. Alcohol, illegal drugs, cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and tobacco items, weapons, chains, spiked collars, belts, or any accessories that may be used as weapons are not allowed. Extra security is visible throughout the events.

What do we wear?

Comfort is king for a night of fun!  Comfortable t-shirts and button-downs are perfect for guys and dresses and shorts mid-thigh shorts and dresses for girls. Comfortable shoes (no water shoes) are a must as well.

Universal Orlando™ strongly recommends that students wear matching, brightly colored shirts with their school names clearly identified.


What about chaperones?

Gradventure chaperones are treated as VIPs with special extras like a Universal Express Pass to skip the regular ride lines.  They also have access to chaperone-only lounges for breaks, snacks, and drinks.



Where can we stay?

Staying on property maximizes your Gradventure experience.  Cabana Bay Beach Resort, Universal’s Aventura Hotel, or Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Surfside Inn and Suites are all just minutes away from the parks and CityWalk™.

Come for the party and stay for even more fun!

A few exclusive post-party perks for on-property guests…

What about late arrivals or early departures?

Gradventure is a special after-hours school event with a strict ‘lockdown’ policy, so students and chaperones must arrive as a group and stay until the event ends.

School responsibilities or family obligations may require a student to arrive late or leave early.  Check with the head chaperone AND the Gradventure team to determine permission.
