Used go card to get in but also bought front of line ticket which cost 68 dollors more per person. Was a waste of money upgrading as the park was not busy there was no waiting in queues. The rides are great did expect more from the Harry Potter rides. One of them is way better then the other. Harry... More

Yes, Universal has come a long way since it's days of hosting behind the scenes reenactments of Airport 77 and the like; however that's what made it fun. There are many attractions in the lower back lot that you can't see anymore. They've sprinkled in Jurassic Park and Fast and Furious elements, which I don't think were a value add.... More

Universal Studios has became a place for kids, there are barely any roller coasters, they are all basically simulations in 3D for kids, the good old Jurassic Park and The Mummy rides kind of saves the day but other than that it's not very exciting for an adult and the prices are now higher than Disneyland!

We had a great day at Universal Studios. We had brunch at the Three Broomsticks restaurant. We bought the English breakfast and shared it between the two of us as it is a large meal. Very good value for money. Try the Butterbeer for a new experience. We did eat at other eateries during the day. Overall the Three Broomsticks... More

I came just for the Butter Beer. I wish I were joking. It was amazing but get the frozen one. The park was packed but still a great time. If you are a fan, get a wand. You just have to.

Be there early morning, better on Saturday or Sunday. Be ready to spend there all the day. Use and explore all the territory, this is huge. And as for me the best flight is Harry Potters'.

Enjoyed our day at Universal. It is small than I expected, but handled crowds well. We saw all the attractions we wanted to see, without too much waiting in line. Can't wait to come back!!! TIPS-buy your ticket in advance to avoid long lines. Uber or take Metro in to avoid a long walk from parking garages through City Walk.

My wife and I visited this month on a beautiful sunny LA day. Only a 20min drive from West Hollywood, we'd pre-booked Front of Line tickets online a month or so before. Queues were big on arrival, but got through fairly quickly. I'd recommend the park tour initially, as apparently that can get busy later on. Essentially it's a guided... More
