Wow guys/gals. I was in hollywood on my honeymoon and was STOKED to get to universal studios . We bought the VIP Experience package and it was WELL WORTH THE MONEY.

I Highly Highly recommend doing it this way. you get the following:

a) a great guide - our's was AWESOME
b) breakfast before the tour - buffet yum
c) go on all the rides and see all the shows front of the line no waiting, EVER
d) get buffet lunch, and we are talking GOURMET buffet lunch
e) do the REAL tour, the backlot tour, see everything, the history, the props, etc
f) have enough time left over to shop till you drop in memoribilia stores, hit any rides you wanna do again, etc.

We had the time of our lives. And after it was done we went to universal City Walk to walk around and get some eats. . A long FUN FILLED DAY. If you are in hollywood. DO THIS. you HAVE TO!

“Breath Taking Experiance for all”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

One can re-live in the west. Go through the Jurassic Park with full action - it is the best. Must see the special effects show - one of a kind. Transformers ride - WOW. It is bit crowded during summer holidays, if you go early and choose the main attractions first can avoid long queues

“So Much Fun”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We just completed an excellent day at Universal Studios. We followed advise and woke up early and got into the park around 7:45 and then headed directly to the rides. We were able to ride Transformers, Mummy ride, Simpsons, twice each with no lines before things got busy. We loved them all. We then headed for the Studio Tour where the line flowed quickly. My kids loved this tour. Full of fun surprises and interesting information. Someone said it was boring. No it is not! When we got back near noon the line was very long and things had become congested. Yeah for us that we had already hit the highlights with no lines or stress. We then ate lunch and enjoyed the Grinch lights and singing. Took pictures with the Grinch, Cindy Lou, the Minions, etc.. and did some shopping. Left at 3:00 feeling we had done everything we wanted to do and definitely wanted to get away from the crowds. Came back at night to see the lights and eat dinner at City Walk. My kids loved the rides and Universal Studios in general. I had a great time too! Don't think it would have been fun if we had arrived with the massive crowds.

“Attractions & shows are amazing”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

you can't beat the studio tour I have done it before but it has been years always changing for the better. The technology behind the ride are top notch. it is crowded & you have to negotiate by wait time but it can be done without have to wait to long.

“Loved the Studio tour!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

I came in the second week of december and the place was very Empty! Had a great time, rides were all working the lines were tiny! The staff were a little pushy to get you to buy extra tickets at the front gate, which wasn't as welcoming as Going to Disneyland! But still a really cool place to visit and the see the Original movie sets was a big buzz!
