This is Universal’s name for the costumed characters and performers that wander around the park adding atmosphere. In recent years, the quantity of characters has increased massively, resulting in loads more photo opportunity for excited children (and adults). This list covers almost all of the characters that have appeared around Universal over the years.

The central Universal Plaza usually has a few musical numbers throughout the day, followed by photo opportunities with a load of Streetmosphere characters at once – check with Guest Services on the day you’re in the park. 


(as many of the characters appear seasonally, check with Guest Services when you arrive at the park to find out which characters will be appearing on the day you visit)
