Get there early and take the option and additional cost to premium park $30 but you will be happy when you try and leave. This park is great for smaller children but there are limited big rides not a patch on Thorpe park. Some great 3D rides very cutting edge epically the studio tour but the que for It was... More

As we were only there for one day we invested in a Front of Line ticket. If we had not done this we would never have managed to visit all of the attractions as the queues were huge. It is worth getting there for opening and going straight to Jurassic park/Mummy/Transformers as the queues were quite short at the start.... More

Traveled to the Studios for the VOICE 5 times over a 6 month period. Lovely experience watching the taping of the show. 1Iota is exceptional in how they walk you through the waiting period before the show begins. Very exciting and wonderful memories for my daughter and I.....Finding Curious George parking lot is not an easy task the first go... More

The Floride one is way bigger and needs more than one day to finish the rides (if you have the ordinary ticket) anyways, the one in LA has different programs, their studio tour is really nicr and totally cool. They even have live shows like special effects and water wars and both are really cool (different from FL) it's really... More

We only had one day and it was our first visit. Talked to few people and with waits of 20-60min on rides, we decided to get the front of line pass. We had a great time, not that you wont even without the pass. So we showed up with online tickets at 8am. This allowed us to get to harry... More

This was one of the best amusement parks we have been to! The rides are awesome and my nine year old loved every minute. I strongly recommend fast pass tickets- well worth the extra cost. You can only use these once per ride BUT you get in an hour earlier so go on the rides once and early with minimal... More

Overall our day was fine and the kids (19, 17 and 10) had a great time. But from the adult perspective: 1) We bought our tickets online with the idea that we would get in one hour early to see Harry Potter World. The park was supposed to open at 8 am the day we went so we got there... More
