Minimal queues for the rides on Thursday when we went. Thoroughly enjoyed the rides, the tour and all the shows. A bit chilly so glad I took an extra top to wear. Staff were very helpful with directions and times for events clear to see in lots of places.

We arrived at the park around 10.30am, on a sunny Sunday morning. The place was busy but the queue was kept flowing by prompts over tanoy to where the process would be quickest. We were through in a few minutes. We had a truly enjoyable day, got round all that we wanted to do without rushing. Studio tour was enjoyable.

3 shows by day with some attractiveness. Some of the shows failed (water...animals...) but this is as it is...no end takes! The tour was good with a good guide. Amazing the performance at Transformers and Jurassic Park...that is worth for money. Food in general bad and fat as drinks together expensive...12 usd for a burger...10 usd for a glass of... More

We arrived right at the opening on a sunny Friday morning. Park was busy and waits weren't to bad on average 30 to 45 minutes for each ride. We got on the studio tour with zero wait though. Park is a lot of fun but was suprised when we were done everything by 3:00. It's a bit pricey approx. $90... More

This is pretty much a city by itself! My friend and I were quite impressed with the offerings of Universal Studios. Felt like we were a very real part of the movies we had watched which were produced here. Very inspiring!

This place is great for people of all ages. If you aren't interested in the rides which are great fun especially the Jurassic park, mummy and transformers, you can see the great shows and take the tour which is also a lot of fun. As an Aussie I would rate it above Warner brothers on the Gold Coast.

Definitely worth a visit when in LA. The studio tour was great and probably the only thing that didn't require hours of waiting just to get on.

Again we have a great concept that is tripping on itself by being too greedy. While the place is entertaining and fun it is way way too commercial. The studio facet is underplayed and the ride park is over emphasized. Way too expensive.

Booked the VIP experience before visiting and it was well worth the money! I was running late for my tour due to traffic in LA so on arrival they moved me to the next one which was much appreciated! I could then enjoy the breakfast buffet in the VIP lounge before meeting our Tour Guide. The tour bus takes you... More
