We paid for the "First in Line" pass, and it is a GOOD thing we did!! Some of the wait times were 80+ minutes, and we were able to just walk to the beginning.. it was great!!! My favorite ride was the Mummy Ride. The food wasn't too overpriced either. The whole family had a great time!!

We were staying in Anaheim near Disney and bought the tour with Grayline with transfers and tickets to Universal. It was a day trip. They pick you up in front of the hotel and take to Universal. 1 day is more than enough to do the entire park.We absolutely loved it! By far the best ride is the Transformers one.... More

I expected to be bored but enjoyed the whole day. We bought standard tickets and by careful timing saw every show and rode every ride. The Studios Tour wait is about an hour but is superb. Join the queues for single riders, and start on the lower deck to avoid waiting.

Went over there for a day. Quite expensive, even the regular day tickets; but had a hell of a day. There weren't too much people, so no long waiting lines. This made everything more relaxed. The studio tour is a must do, loved the 3D-experience!

Me and my wife had gone to Universal this labor day weekend and our experience was very good. As it was long weekend, the crowds were big and queues to the rides were long. I had anticipated this and had booked for Front of the Line pass and it definitely helped. We were able to go pass the crowd and... More

this place was interesting. they do show some back stage tours. they do tell and show some film industry history. they do show some of the production facilities. your best bet here is to call ahead. you can, often get advance passes that can get you in the front of line, or in the door with out waiting in line.

Had a fabulous day and loved the tours and shows. Arrived at 11ish and stayed till 10pm which was perfect as weather cooled and crowds disappeared. Rides were fun (clever not rollercoasters) and 3D effects incredible. Family are still talking about the Water World show and House of horror

We bought the front of line pass which I highly recommend! Studio tour : go to Warner Bros or paramount ! Couldn't hear our tour guide and all they did was drive around a bunch of warehouses and had a few stops to look out the train at a few places of flowing water and a plane crash scene! At... More

This was my first ever Universal experience, and after hearing great things from a friend of mine, I was very excited to check it out for myself. And I wasn't disappointed. The rides were amazing, with my favourite being the Mummy ride, but I also quite liked the fact that the Jurassic Park ride had a single rider line. I... More

We booked the VIP tour at Universal and had Tim as our tour guide - the day was fantastic. It was worth every cent we paid and we highly recommend this to anyone. It's by far the best way to see the park and behind the scenes of Universal. The front of line pass means you never queue for a... More
