We had a VIP tour as we were tight on time. These cost $300 per person, so consider that when reading my reaction. Our tour guide, Natalie, was impeccably smart, fun, lovely, etc. We told her from the start our most important tour items, and she did all she could to make these possible. The tour itself was fascinating, and... More

We went to Universal Studios in Florida not too long ago, so we were expecting the same sort of thing in California. Totally different. This is a tiny park that can easily be covered in a day. There are only 4 rides, one of which was closed when we were there, but we still had a great day. The hour-long... More

Well you have to try it if you're in LA and once you have, you'll go back. It's a very, very well done park. Like others, I would recommend the front of the line passes if it's a busy time. It's a financial investment that means you'll see more, and enjoy it more, and for our party, it was definitely... More

Universal Studios needs to step it up. My favorite and pretty much the only reason I go is for the studio tour! Its always a catch to see actors,tv sets, and movie sets. Besides that, Transformers was basic, you have to walk 2 miles to get from place to place, and there are 1/2 mile long escalators that take up... More

We did the VIP tour which we booked in the UK. This was great. You get well looked after and get to jump all the queues in the wonderful theme park. You get knowledgable guides. You get well fed and you get attacked by a shark (Jaws), a dinosaur (Jurassic Park) and other movie legends. I personally loved the Foley... More

This place doesn't need special recommendations because it speaks for it self. If you'd be there alone don't buy vip access, because for roller coasters there are separated lines for singles so you are winning anyway ;-) I've never stend in the line longer that 15 min (I know it was February, but Oscar weekend, so there was still many...

We visited universal studios last week, it was ok, we visited during the week and saw everything in one day, we bought a year ticket as it was on special for the price of one day, we went back on the Saturday afternoon and it was overcrowded and way to busy with long wait times over an hour, since we...
