To be fair, we were there on an exceptionally bad weather day (50s, extreme winds that tore some of parking lot roof apart, and rain pellets like needles on your face), so we were surprised by the lines. Despite the horrific weather, the staff were all very positive and nice. The next day we visited other studios for tours and... More

Try and arrive as early as possible to avoid large crowds and long lines especially in the summer time. Universal is about 10 mins from Hollywood Blvd. Universal city is awesome - its a grove filled with shops and restaurants. The park opens at 8am.Try and go to Harry Potter world first as its new and there is still a... More

I visited Universal Studies Hollywood with my husband last week. We were able to get in an hour early with our start of the line passes. I highly recommend getting this pass if you plan to do all of the actions like we did. This helps you fit it all in and helps you not need to stand in lines... More

Universal Studios Hollywood now has the Harry Potter and the Simpsons attractions. If you're a fan of either, you'd be in heaven. I'm not really a fan, but I still had a lot of fun. The rides use visual effects to make you feel like you're in a roller coaster when you're stationary, but the cars just move up and... More

Your visit to this place would be like a hollywood flick! Ride through the studios where so many famous movies were shot, enjoy the numerous rides and themed attractions and chance to re-live your childhood memories of Harry Potter and other movies! Its a complete package. A day is not enough for this!
