I visited here 17 years ago with my wife on our honeymoon & it was a fantastic experience. This time we returned with our 2 teenage kids & we were disappointed. The backlot tour was great as was the waterworld show but that's about it. I must say, we did visit Universal Studios Orlando only a week earlier so we... More

Took the family to Universal Studios yesterday. We did the VIP experience and found it to really be the only way to go. Upon walking up to the front entrance and asking where we were supposed to go we were escorted and assisted the entire day. We checked in at the VIP entrance to the right of the main gate.... More

I even went on the mummy ride TWICE, yes twice lol. LA is beautiful with lots to do but please add this to your list. Well dressed for the holidays with... More

I've been coming to Universal Studios since I was a child. The experience hasn't changed much and to be honest this is really only a half day theme park. There are limited set of rides and if you can get here right at opening it's easy to ride all of them before lunch time. The shows though are amazing especially... More

There are not a huge amount of rides but it is clear a lot of thought has gone into the rides there. the characters are amazing to... More

We arrived at 8.45 and bought our California Go Pass tickets at the gate - no hassles at all - also bought the front of line tickets - well worth while ( saved us hours during the day) - the only construction going on is the new Harry Potter ride that will be open 2016 - great atmosphere - friendly...

I wasn't in the theme park but in the Universal City. It's nice too see but not a must. The only thing which really annoyed me were the parking prices! No matter how long you stay, it is at least 10$!

It's not what I remembered about 5 years ago, back when they had much more rides around the park, but it was still worth every penny reminiscing with my GF about the attractions that we saw back then, and how much the park has changed. It seems that the next two years will be great for the property as multiple... More

This is our 5th year coming to Grincas, I felt that this year they stepped up on the entertainment. With professional street dancers (tapworxs) I love seeing the whole park transform into Whoville, seeing the who's interact with the kids and really bringing the kids into their world.
