This was our third visit and this time the drawcard was the new Harry Potter World. Our kids are adults (18 and 21) but grew up with the books and just loved it! Definitely the highlight. The studio tour is more special effects than behind the scenes and not as good as past tours. We missed the old King Kong!

We are not normally the type to spend this amount of money on something we could queue for. I cannot recommend it highly enough!!! It is as good as the promotion sets out. I wondered how I would feel being bossed around by someone all day. It couldn't have felt more different than that. Our guide Erica was amazing -... More

We visited in peak season so a front of line pass is a must , get around early and do the rides first while the park is quiet then in the afternoon use your pass, Harry Potter world and the 3d ride is a 4 or 5 time ride its amazing.

Don't even hesitate to spend a day out here. We bought front of line passes which was completely worth it. Although on entry we turned up early as the pass online said we could get in an hour early but when asking someone he said no. However I knew I'd read it when I bought the online ticket so we...

The nice thing about Universal Studios is that it still actually sit on the terrain of the teal studio complex and that makes the studio tour really special. Yes, a lot of outdated fun, but also a glimpse of Hollywood work environment combined with high octane rides. The rides are fun, but do not expect rollercoasters. This is 90% moving... More

The park is OK.... quite small but there are some good parts.... Food and drink expensive...but to be expected to some degree as they have a captive audience.

Due to the hotel we rented we received tickets to get in the Harry Potter area an hour early. That was pretty awesome. We rode the whole 2 rides in that area in less than 20 mins. So we were bored for over 30 more minutes waiting for the park to open up. The lines were pretty short so we... More

We bought annual passes so that we could enjoy the Harry Potter area, and we were not disappointed... we've been there three times since it opened!

Have not been here in awhile, so we opted for the Two Day pass online that was just a little more than a One day pass. Did'nt see the need for Front of the Line or VIP as there are way too expensive unless you got some extra $$$ to drop. The new Rides Transformers and Harry Potter were fun.... More
