We did the VIP Experience, it was so worth it!!! Fast pass to front of lines on all rides. Great personnel, service, with our own personnel guide. We got lots of additional information , other guest's would miss. Fabulous buffet lunch. Only, slight negative -only had time for one ride on each ride, with tour guide - no free time... More

It wasn't on our must do list but it is from here on in. If you skip this trip you are missing out on the best day in LA! My biggest tip is go right to the bottom at the start of the day, you can walk from 1 ride straight onto the next with no queues as early everyone... More

I love universal studios. The rides are top notch! There was only one ride that had lines that were too long for us so we had to skip it. It was disappointing but not that big of a deal. Other than that it was a great time! We really loved the 3-D tram ride, Shrek and the Simpsons.

My family loves the new Harry Potter area. The new hot butter beer was a great addition to the menu ( wish you could get it in more places than just the Three Broomsticks ) We can't wait to go back.

My wife and I weren't too crazy about it. Most of the rides are 4D so if you are queasy about that type of thing there are not a lot of other choices. That being said, the Harry Potter area is interesting and the presentations (shows) are quite good (I would suggest the Universal Studios tour - it was the... More

We got the one day pass and we're able to go on 7 rides. Harry Potter world was nice. I would suggest going first thing in the morning. We were able to ride both rides there with 30 minute wait times. In the afternoon it jumped to 2 hour wait times. We had lunch at Krusty Burgers. The food there... More

We visited before school got out for break. We were able to ride Harry Potter as much as we wanted. Harry Potter World is so well done! The attention to detail is a joy to look at. My kids LOVED the Three Broomsticks for lunch. We had a great day!

Universal Studios Hollywood is an amazing experience. We upgraded to the VIP experience and it was expensive ($329pp) but worth it in view of the fact that, among other perks, we had priority access to all rides & attractions. The kids absolutely adored the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This was a “once only” VIP experience & should we return... More

Loved our day as Universal VIPs! I booked surprise tickets for my husband and daughter. The lounge for pre tour drinks and pastries was lovely and welcoming. Our guide Monse was great and very knowledgeable. The rides were great fun and the Walking Dead was scary, funny and novel in one! Lunch at the Moulin Rouge was exquisite and a... More
