In a social media post, guests staying at Hard Rock Hotel were concerned about what was going on when they noticed a large police presence. These guests spotted helicopters, cars, and police. While they were trying to figure out what was going on, other guests talked about seeing police located around The Simpson’s attraction.

“There were a lot of police at Hard Rock hotel last night. Helicopters, cars etc. does anyone know what happened?”

While it can be anything happening at Hard Rock Hotel, and accident could have occurred, or it could be an important celebrity needing more protection, causing the amount of police presence. Other guests reportedly spotted police looking in the bushes, trashcans, and other locations for something around The Simpsons attraction.

“I didn’t see them at Hard Rock, but we saw 3 police officers yesterday looking around for something right outside The Simpsons. They were checking bushes, trashcans, etc.”

If Universal guests find something or see something out of the blue, let your nearest Team Member know. Universal Team Members are trained in helping guests; if they cannot handle the situation, they can call for help.
