Went here with extended family of 8 and took the VIP Experience package. Our studio guide was Peter Gardner, a jovial chap. The package includes breakfast and a buffet lunch- both great. There were back studio visits and priority entry to rides and attractions. In places like waterworld we got to click pictures with the performers. The VIP experience started... More

Purchase year pass at Cosco, 20% cheaper than on site ($80/each pass), if you have just 01 day visit, should buy front line pass (around $90/pass) and it's worth the money due to you will save a lot of your time and health (normal waiting time at busiest ride was 70 minutes but only 15 minutes for front line pass...

Was everything we expected. We got the Metrolink ($5 for a day pass) from Hollywood Blvd as its only a stop and theres a Universal Shuttle link from the station that takes you up to the gate. Get there for 8am and start from the lower lot and work towards the front. We got most of the main rides out... More

We found the queue to get in way too long and a little off putting. However once in we headed straight for Minion Madness. Do this ride early as the queues build up quickly and it is very popular. It is an absolute hoot of a ride! Don't eat at Gru's cafe outside. Food was very expensive and revolting. The... More

What a great place. I've been here a few times, it gets better each time. The whole family went and we did the 'VIP' experience. Everyone had a great time, and lasting memories were made. Thank you for a wonderful experience. I will definitely return again.

Last June my family of four went to Universal Studios. We visited every year, and i can tell you this year they had made several changes, the new water play area is wonderful. My 13 yrs old and 7 yrs old had a blast there. It was really nice to see that the park provided in most areas of the... More

After 2 days of Disneyland, my wife and i only had 1 day here. Tickets are not cheap and we upgraded to Front of Line passes for an extra $80 or so each. Although expensive it is well worth it as you go to the front of every ride you go on but you can only do this once. Trick... More

We purchased the 'front of the line' passes given we were only spending a single day at the studios and while they were pricey, they were definitely worth the investment for visitors only staying for a short period. The parking was close and well priced, the lines minimal (with our pass) and the food much better than the other adventure... More
