We bought an annual pass as we were in LA for 5 months! So glad we did as the studio tour was different every-time! The transformers 3D ride was the newest when we went. Towards the end of September they start to prep for Halloween, with AMAZING models etc! Worth a visit! :)

Had the most amazing time with my host Donna. Realizing while I was there that having someone looking after my needs was just great. LA was going through a heatwave and she made sure I was well hydrated and got me to the front of the queue for everything and everything was timed so I didn't miss any shows like... More

From the time we arrived we were all excited about being there . As we were early we had to wait about 20 mins before we could go through . But we were not disapointed , the first thing we did was the universal tour of all the sets , really enjoyed that and got lots of pictures . Then... More

We scheduled a full day for this park on the assumption there would be as much to do here as in Florida. There is nowhere near as many interesting rides here as its much smaller. It was very busy with queue build up times raising all the time - which increases the time needed to spend in the park. On... More

A little expensive but worth every penny! Especially not needing to walk up and down the mountain , all the attractions were planned for so we got thru all major rides! Behind the scene tours were super cool, our guide Aaron every carried chilled bottled water for everyone around the park! Very thoughtful! Highly recommend! The light breakfast was more... More

I had dreamed of visiting Universal Studios since i was a child, and it did not disappoint. Going in the lead up to Halloween made it all the more memorable with zombies everywhere. Fantastic holiday.

timing is all important,get it right and you avoid the queues,fail and you need to buy a fast pass.Still I saw a lot of people with those passes who went into the rides at the same time as us.the must sees are everything. Food and drink are on the expensive side but it's what you expect when they have a... More

My experience universal over the years has changed. This visit was the first with my 5 year old daughter. The park was themed for Halloween which was incredibly un friendly for kids. There were pretend zombies all over the park with their innards hanging out and in various stages of murder. As you can imagine this was tough for a... More

I don't like heights and roller coasters but this theme park was great! The latest 3D simulation rides were great fun, we had the best time. The shows especially waterworld was brilliant. Do not waste time seeing the special effects show- it's outdated and a little boring.

Ww visited this tourist spot with no real expectations. We spent nearly a full day there & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The universal studio tour was fantastic & is a must, showing scenes where movies are made & some virtual (& in some cases dramatic & scary) experiences. The waterworld was like a show in itself & fantastic. Plenty of eating... More
