The clip opens with a close-up shot of Vasquez’s old Universal Studios Theme Park pass in all its ‘90s glory, where she’s pictured wearing glasses and choker necklaces.

Vasquez explains that her mom realized an annual pass from Universal Studios for two kids was cheaper than their afterschool programs. “So me and my brother would take the bus after school every day to Universal Studios,” she recalls while flipping over the “Celebrity Annual Pass,” revealing its bright, over-the-top graphics.

“Our school bus dropped us off literally right in front of the studios, so we would just go to Universal Studios after school every day, ” Vasquez chuckles, fondly remembering that her brother also applied to be on the TV game show, Legends of the Hidden Temple several times before the video comes to a close.

“That sounds like a TV show! Imagine if TikTok existed back then. Great content every day, lol,” one user mentioned.

“OMG! My dad did the same but for Six Flags Magic Mountain. We even got to know the employees. Our parents were geniuses back then,” said one TikToker.

“There was an article a couple of years ago about a woman who gave up her shared office space and got a Universal Studios pass and worked there on the WiFi,” one viewer shared.
