Went at peak school vacation time and crowds were awful even though we arrived at opening time, would not recommend until renovations are finished and the Harry Potter attraction is complete.

VIP tour was great and the way to go if possible, You get to see most of the rides and have time at the end to see what is missed. Meal for VIP lunch is very good.

We decided to come to Universal Studios while visiting in San Diego. I had know idea this place existed since on the east coast they push the Orlando location pretty hard. I’ve never been to Orlando by the way so take that into consideration when reading this review. We visited on September 2 (on a Wednesday before Labor Day). The... More

We were a family of 13 at Universal this past June, ages from 12 to 64 and everyone of us enjoyed everything!. Love the escalators ! Variety of food for everyone. The rides were great and the show! I would get there when they open and stay until they close! Lots to see and do and the tour guides are... More

Getting better and better, so much to do for adults and for the kids. The Studio tour is always my favorite and has come a long way thru the years. Many new additions with a few favorite classics for nostalgia. Had a wonderful time with my family. One day park visit was fine as we were able to do most... More

This was our first time visiting Universal Studios in Hollywood. We had been to the one in Florida a few years ago. Most of the rides involve 3D glasses which we are not fans of. There are a few that actually move around like Jurassic Park Ride and the Studio Tour, which were both surprisingly fun. The crowds weren't too... More

We have been there for an entire day, around the studios. It's an amazing experience. The place deserves the price of the ticket. In the studios you can walk in a crowded and exciting place full of entertainments, games, movies, movies simulation. You can live the way of making movies, through the places where the movies are made, the sceneries.... More

My wife and I had a fun time at Universal for a day. I hadn't been to US since 1986, and it has a changed a lot. There are a few rides, but no large coasters, or anything. It's a great place to be entertained. If you like the rides, spring for the front of line pass. Otherwise, you'll be... More
