I am so happy I went there. The new Harry Potter attraction is very cool. It's just like you're actually there! The only downside is that most attractions are in 3D. Not great for someone who gets sick very fast.

If you're a child or teenager, this place may be high on your agenda for the rides. However, if you are an adult - and not dragged there by your children - then it's not worth the steep admission price! In summer, there is very little shade and massive crowds. You'll be lucky if you can get close to one... More

We were thinking not to go to universal studios as we had just visited Disney parks. Finally decided to go so that we didn't miss any. It was amazing and different than Disney and we all had a great day there. really a must see attraction.

It was my first time to visit Universal Studios anywhere in the world and i became an instant fan. I have visited major Disney lands and somehow i find them a bit boring, but Universal studio was a bit more closer to my comic world. I visited them on Sunday and that too when kids were having a break in... More

We were a party of five - myself, my two boys (one in a wheelchair), and my parents. It was only 9AM and the park was crowded and you could tell it was going to be a hot day. I am writing this mainly with a focus for parents with special needs kids. To sum it all up, I probably... More

We were there from about noon until 10 on a hot July day. The long lines can be miserable on a hot day. In hindsight I would have arrived earlier to beat some of the crowds. Expect 2 hour waits. Universal does not do as well as some other parks with moving crowds thru the attractions and ticketing. That said,... More

Universal Studios was absolutely amazing! Inside there were restaurants, and shopping stores-so if you forgot to get anything, then you can buy it from there! The rides are creative and fun, the shows are full of fun, and the people working there are extremely kind and helpful! I would definitely do this experience again!
