“Worth a visit!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

All in all had a great day at Universal Studios! The King Kong part of the tour wasnt working when we done it but we got front of the line passes for any ride and also for the tour if we wanted to take it again when it was back up and running!!

“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Great day out, rides were great. Shame we couldn't get out of the tram on the studio tour to take pictures and have a look around. Wouldn't bother with queue jump tickets the big rides were really quiet when we got there, went on at least 4 times on each ride.

“Total waste of money!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Coming from Australia we had heard rave reviews of universal studios and we were disgusted with the cost of things and the lack of rides and characters! We went with our 5 yo daughter and got a 2 day pass, well what a total waste of money PLUS 2 days! We didn't even use the 2nd day ticket. The characters rarely came out and the lines were incredibly long. The lack of easily assessible drink stands were also disappointing. All in all we wish we never went to Universal Studios, compared to Disneyland it's 100% crap

Everything great. We booked upgraded your with personal tour guide Natalie who was courteous, knowledgeable and amusing. Expensive but worth the price as had family from a Germany attending for first time.

“Being in the movies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I visited LA with my cousins and husband this summer over the labor day weekend. This was the most fun thing we did in LA. Although it was very hot during the day, the fans with water sprays kept us cool as we went from one attraction to another. One can cover all the attractions within a day, maps and displays with waiting time for rides are set up everywhere. There are enough reasonable food options within the park and the Universal Citiwalk just outside has many more. We took the normal tickets and actually managed to repeat some of the rides. Finally, the attractions themselves are terrific! They are much better suited for teens and adults as compared to Disney. The quality of effects make you feel as if you are actually inside the movie especially Transformers and Mummy. Definitely a must do when in LA .
