If you like theme parks, this one is second only to Disneyland. You can do most of it in a single day. Better restaurants than Disney just outside the gate.

My husband and I visited here on our honeymoon and what an experience it was. A wonderful memory to have. Right from the entrance to the very end, everything is so well laid out and your day just goes from one exciting thing to the next. We both the VIP tickets to get the quick-pass in to the different rides... More

We took a private tour trough the Universal Studios which was most entertaining as well as educative. Lary, our private guide, did his level best to show and explain everything we visited. I would like to recommend this tour to every cinema enthousiast. The tour lasted the whole day and included a delicious breakfast and an even more delicious lunch.

I love amusement parks, and this did not disappoint! The rides were great, the atmosphere was fun, and the production of the shows was great. Unfortunately we didn't arrive until 3pm, and the park closes at 6pm. In that time we did Shrek 4D, The Simpsons Ride, Waterworld (show) and Animal Actors (show). The line for The Simpsons Ride was... More

A little bit of everything for everyone. Awesome rides, tours and a lot fun. Wish the Harry Potter set was ready for Christmas while we were there. Hogwarts looked awesome from the Shrek queue. 😉

My friends and I always go to universal a few times per year. We have a blast every time. I love the Simpson's ride , Transformers ride, and especially the Mummy ride. I also HIGHLY recommend going for the Halloween fright night times. Go to universal in October late at night and it's as if you are in a completely... More

Our family of 4 did the VIP tour at Universal and rated this the best day of our trip to the US. It was quite expensive, but when you consider what you get, and how you feel at the end of the day, I would definitely do it again! Breakfast and lunch supplied, fully guided tour of the studios and... More
