Just a few months after raising their daily ticket prices and right before the unveiling of the park's biggest summer attractions, Universal Orlando has now raised the price of their annual passes. 

According to the theme park's website, the Florida Resident Power Pass is now $235, a $20 increase. The Preferred Pass, which comes with free parking and no blackout dates, is now $310. And, the Premiere Pass, which includes VIP parking, is now $445.

The recent uptick in pass prices comes right before the opening of two highly anticipated 2016 summer park additions, the newly revamped Hulk roller coaster and the Reign of Kong attraction.

Next year, the Volcano Bay water park is set to open, as well as the Sapphire Falls Resort.
