There is so much to see and do at Universal Studios. You should get the 'front of the line' pass to get served quicker and get into the shows much quicker. Costs a little more, but worth it.

My boyfriend and I went along during our trip to LA and I had a blast. All the rides were incredible made me feel like a kid again. Despicable Me minon mayhem ride was by far my favourite, was amazing. However Jurassic Park & Transformers rides were close to the top of my list also. Just such a great day... More

Sure, some of the rides were closed (Shrek) when we visited, and it might be a bit dated (Jurassic Park) but it's still worth a visit. The Transformers and Despicable Me 3D rides are very good, as is the Simpsons. The backlot tour is also worth doing just for the King Kong part. As is usual in theme parks food... More

We went straight to the bottom of the park upon arrival. The Transformers, Revenge of the Mummy and Jurassic park rides were only about 5 minute wait time. It was entertaining watching Megatron tease the people who took photos with him. The tour was a bit boring during some parts. But there were some excellent parts to make it all... More

Visited on a weekday late December- by all accounts "off-peak". Got there right on opening at 9 am and headed straight to the back to do the studio tour which was great fun and very informative. Try for carriage 2 or 3 on the window if you can. No wait at 9.10. From there did a few other lower lot... More

If you can swing the hefty price, you ought to take the VIP Experience Tour of the Universal Studios, Theme Park and Production Warehouse. Of course, the children will love the fast track VIP pass to access the best rides without waiting in long lines. But there's something here for everyone. After going on the Jurassic Park ride a couple... More

Everything is closed, old and broken. Things that is 20 years old, has not even been fixed. Not worth the money at all.

This is a small park as clearly space is an issue here. My husband and I were disappointed. If you have been to the Universal complex in Orlando, Florida, then don't bother with the LA one. You would be better off going to the nearby 6 flags.
