We got a two for one deal on the internet, so were able to get in two full days for $77/each. The weather was uncooperative on the second day with pouring ran, but the park offered a heated tent and free hot cocoa and coffee, which was a nice touch. The park was very cleaned and well maintained. There were... More

I try to go as oven as I can, I love the feeling of being part of the magic..I recommend getting there early and make sure to buy the All you can eat passes. The food prices and crazy high but the all you can eat pays for its self after you eat lunch and dinner. Start with the tram... More

This was an excellent day out with plenty to keep us (2 adults) occupied throughout the whole day. We opted for the "Front of Line Pass' and it was definitely worth it to avoid the queues and make the most of the time we were there. The performers were great and had real character - particularly liked the Blues Brothers... More

We got to the park when it opened, and we were done by 3 in the afternoon. I was especially disappointed with the food -- Pink's cart inside the park... you cannot call it a "Pink's" cart if you do not sell chili dogs. If you've never been to Pink's, wait in the long line at their original location on... More

As a big fan of roller coasters the only one i really enjoyed was the mommy ride, but it is a very nice park, cool backstage tour, as a fan of Desperate Housewives show i loved to visit the set!

Skip the bypass the line for an extra $52 per person. If you get to the park when they open you wont have to wait more than 10-15 minutes for the rides, I did three rides in an hour. I recommend the Simpsons Ride it is so much fun, avoid the mummy and the Haunted House is by far one... More

Universal Studios can easily be done in one day if planned out right. My suggestion would be to get there when they open and plan out your show schedule. In between shows, ride as many rides as you can (there aren't too many). My favorite ride is the Mummy and any roller coaster fan will love it. Overall, Universal is... More

The Simpsons ride rated the best with our family. A tip is to do it first as the wait can be long ,then head down the backlot to do the Jurassic Park and Mummy rides and the backlot tour.
