We had a great time!!! The wait for the rides weren't long at all. The employees were very helpful in the park! I got separated in the park from my family in the Transformers ride, and the employee allowed me to wait at the front on the line for them until the got there. That was very nice.

We spend a full memorable day at Universal Studios with our children aged 12&14. It was a great experience, better than the one we visited in Singapore a couple of years back ( may be the reason children have grown up). We had a one day ticket booked online with early entry to the venue. Since we stayed in Hilton... More

It has all the requisite entertainment park items in addition to the real live studios on campus. these studios set it apart from the other universal entertainment parks. A tad crowded in the summers, esp in the harry potter section, but thats as expected...so we couldn't manage a hogwarts ride and the heat gets to one after sometime in the... More

My husband and I visited Hollywood/ LA for our 5 year anniversary. We decided to pay the extra money and do the Universal VIP experience. Totally worth every penny. They truly spoil you. Catered breakfast when you first arrive, in a beautiful private area. Behind the scenes of shows and TV sets. The amazing prop warehouse. Lunch at a five... More

We went to Universal Studios with our family (2 daughters 14 & 11) and had a great day. The lines weren't too long and they really do a good job of incorporating the experience while you are waiting in line. There was a great selection of food while inside the park as well as a variety of souvenir shops. We... More

I went here in the winter and waited virtually no time to ride each ride. It was easy to see the whole place in 7 hours. I loved the Studio Tour which is a hidden gem. The rides are fun but they aren't rollercoasters, they're simulated coasters. You face a screen which simulates the feeling of being on a coaster.... More

Universal Studios Hollywood is a 1 day trip. No comparison to Universal Florida. But to see behind the scenes on a real studio lot, you cannot go wrong.

Even if you have only a day at LA, Universal studio is one place you must visit. Specially with the latest Harry Potter addition, I had an amazing experience. Worth every penny. I would suggest getting there early in the day to avoid the long queues. Also use single rider option to avoid the queues.

This is a great theme park and the attractions are great. Definitely recommend the VIP Experience! Was able to go behind the scenes and walk on famous movie sets. The food was amazing and got to see Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban in person. Awesome experience!

We splurged on the VIP tour and loved it! Valet parking close to entrance, gourmet breakfast (with lots of chocolate!), 10 people per tour with great guide. We then had a private buffet lunch at the Moulin Rouge - incredible - shellfish, filet mignon, vegetarian assortments, more chocolate). Included are Front of the Line passes which got us on all...
