More gift shops and fast food outlets than rides but ok to spend a few hours if you have front of line pass. Most of the rides are getting a bit dated and not worth the wait. Movie world on the gold coast (Australia) is better so if you have been there you will be disappointed.

Had a great day, so much to see lots going on impossible to get thru in one day but gave it a good shot. A bit dissapointed the Mummy ride wasn't working while there. But other rides where great. The studio tour was fantastic.

Nice place, nice rides… Always crowded but if you get the “Front of the Line” pass the fun is assured.

If you are only going to be there 1 or 2 days, buy a VIP pass on line.. you go first on every queue, get special passes to some areas, and generally get to enjoy sometimes double the amount of rides/attractions a normal day pass gets.

It was a lot of fun. The shows were mostly good esp. the backlot tour and the Termanator 3D. There were a couple of other 3D shows that were very enjoyable. The lines weren't too long except for the Mummy ride on the lower level which ended up being a major disappointment. Ride the water ride on the lower level... More

The park is clean and well-designed, some walking is necessary but they have scooters for those who are walking-challenged. The whole experience was grand, from the tram tour, to the rides and shows. It is fairly expensive, of course, and the food and drinks are also expensive, so bring your wallet.

A must for aspirational moviemakers, movie followers and anyone who's ever been interested to see how movies are made. The backlot tour takes you through sets such as Wisteria lane from desperate housewives, an earthquake and an old western town. Was really an awesome experience. The rides are fun as well (I would recommend Indiana Jones) Overall a wonderful experience.

Fun to see, shops, movie theater at Universal Citywalk, bars...but way to many people. I prefer Universal studios over Disneyland. Disneyland is for kids.
