We spent last summer one day at Universal Studios and it was amazing. We had frontline tickets. No waiting times while the standard tickets had waiting times between 60 and 90 minutes. We arrived at half past nine and at 17:30 we visited all the attractions. Thanks to all the people who works at Universal Studio. It was so hot... More

We went on a Sunday morning! Parking in the regular lot is $15. We bought annual passes from Costco, $109 each. Prior to 11 the park was pretty empty but after that it was very busy. We were able to do the Minion ride twice as well as the simulator in Harry Potter. Will go back!

Lots to see and do. Very few queues when we visited although did get busier after midday (still less than 10 mins for each ride). Impressive Harry Potter land and rides. Loved the waterworld show. We walked to and from the metro station as only took 10 mins (rather than waiting in a very long line for the shuttle bus)... More

Stroll inside the castle for a traditional English breakfast served with your butterbeer.Sausage,bacon,eggs,beans,tomatoes ,potatoes,biscuit and so much more on one plate. Delicious. Friendly staff also. Hours end early though so check. Price was very reasonable. I think it was 12. We even shared there was so much food. Enjoy yourself. Have fun making memories with Harry and his friends

We started by 12 but since we upgraded to front of line, we were able to avoid lines and complete all rides. Harry potter ride is great and fans of harry potter will really love this

We visited Universal Studios in late September. The park closes early on Friday and Saturday for Horror Night but the lines were not too bad during the day. There is not much to do if your child is under 40 inches but plenty if they are above. Try and arrive before the park opens and get to Harry Potter rides... More
