Probably the #2 Destination/Attraction in all of California, after Disneyland

We spent 2 days there, which was just enough time. The park closes at 6pm, which is much earlier than at Disneyland or Disneyworld in Florida. A one-day pass really isn't enough, but for a little more money you can get a season pass. That said, it's a relatively small park so I don't think you'll need 3 days to... More

My Swedish friend and her two girls (ages 15 and 9) convinced me to endure the LA traffic to go to park. We got discounts buying tickets and parking online. We got preferred parking for $7 extra--worth it! The park is better than in past years! We didn't upgrade for front of line, and didn't need to. The park was... More

This is a fantastic theme park set in the Hollywood hills. The rides are awesome especially the Simpsons ride,which is an absolute must. There is something here for everyone. Going round the Hollywood studios is quite surreal. I would recommend this for every age.

This is a great park for older kids and adults that love movies and Hollywood. There are rides for younger kids but I don't know that they would enjoy the park as an all day adventure. Certain times a year you can buy an annual pass for the price of a one day pass. Great deal if you live within... More

We cannot wait for the Harry Potter section to open. The minion section was so much fun we wanted to stay all day there. Transformer ride is amazing. The studio tour ride is GREAT. We plan to return when Harry Poter opens up in 2016.

I loved this park. The Transformer ride was the best followed closely by the new minion ride. The Mummy ride was a huge disappointment though. I was glad to see the construction of the new Harry Potter attraction. The tour was great too. Heaps of photo opportunities. Definitely recommend comfortable walking shoes

This is a great place to visit and the earlier you go the less crowded it is and hence the less queuing is required. Everything worked exactly as described and it is definitely worth visiting. The rides are good and the behind the scenes tour was also worth queuing for...

I visited twice in 3 months. It is better to get a pass of $95 and convert it to yearly pass. Because once you visit there, you can't stop visiting again and again. The best ride so far is the transformer ride, next I liked the most is The Mummy. The studio tour is also very informative. The good thing... More
