We came here on what seemed a busy day, but we didn't wait for any attractions for longer than 20 mins, which meant we tried out everything. Our favourite was the Simpsons ride and the tour around the studios. This place is ideal for families and adults, there is plenty for all. We hired a locker for the day to... More

I remember Snoopy asking why get up early for a worm when you can get Pizza till Midnight... But that logic doesn't apply here. I'm shooting myself in the foot by publishing this review, but there's a rather obvious secret about Universal, and Disneyland for that matter: Go early. Most of the time they open at 9 am, and now... More

A humongous theme park with top quality entertainment, great dining options, and everything very well organized, despite the large crowds. Definitely the highlights of the park were King Kong 3-D, the backlot tour (much better than the one in Orlando, because these are actual filming locations). I recommend the VIP Experience. It's worth the investment.

It had been years since I went to a Universal Studios and it's not usually top on my list but this was a theme vacation about old school films, the 50-60's experience so of course, it had to be on the list. My son has some health problems and he knew about this opportunity you can do if you can't... More

I visited this fantastic place on my own and I was not disappointed. I had a front of the line pass, which I could tell made a massive difference because of the length of queues. Even though pricey, I recommend it. The tour of the sets was fantastic. The videos are amusing and the sets are great. Personal favorite was... More

We had visited its Orlando counterpart and although the weather was not nice we spent a great day in the park. All rides were fully functional and the studios tour was very good!

If you grew up in another country like I did, and never had the opportunity to go to a theme park until you had your own kids, then you can forgive me for oohing and aahing and getting seriously happy and excited by the extraordinary feats of technology at this park. Such Fun!!! Great rides, nice crowd, loved the fact... More

This was just amazing. When we arrived we checked in at the VIP desk, the girls on reception were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We arrived about 10:30 although our tour wasn’t until 11:45am. We were given our VIP passes and invited to either enjoy the park for an hour or we could head straight upstairs to the VIP lounge....

This was the first time I had ever been to Universal, but I always expected it to be amazing! There were only 6 rides and only two of those were actual "rides" - the rest were simulators. I'm not sure if I just had high expectations, or this one really wasn't as nice as Florida. My co-worker was at the... More
