First of all, remember that Universal is not Disney.
And remember, you are in Florida and the heat is pretty much year round! While it is true that the majority of the rides have indoor queues, when the crowds get high, most of them end up with outdoor portions of queues.
There are two ways to get them. You can purchase them by the day (or with your ticket in advance - the better of these options). If you purchase them at the gate or inside the park, you get them at the going rate. Universal only sells so many of them each day.
Of course, if you get them at the same time you get your ticket, then the price is usually much less. (unless you wait until just before your trip to get them…then the dynamic pricing strikes once again!)
