Best place in LA to enjoy a great time. Many things that we watched in English movies, come alive here. They make it in such a way that you enjoy every dollar that you spend inside the Universal Studios. The crowd is true cosmopolitan and the sightseeing inside is great. Live demos on flooding, earth quake Aircrash parts and 3D dinosaur experience inside the tunnel. All worth experiencing. Food is pretty expensive inside, but just okay to spend such amount of money for a day. Lots of things to watch there, so one day is not enough there but we still love that one day we spent in universal studios. If you are going to LA, not to miss this.

If you have abit of extra cash I'd recommend upgrading to the VIP pass. If you have purchased tickets already they will reduce the price of the VIP upgrade with what you have already paid. We got VIP passes which meant we didn't have to wait to get on rides, we got to do a behind the scenes tour and actually get off the bus and walk around to take photos. We had Owen as a tour guide - he was fantastic. Oh the other plus side to doing the VIP tour you get breakfast and a buffet lunch included. We will definitely be back

Visited universal studios for their HHN event. Absolutely amazing and recommend it to anyone who is thinking about attending! The attention to detail in the mazes is phenomenal and we spent the entire evening screaming and laughing. We paid the extra to get a front of line pass and I cannot stress enough how much I would recommend this! The longest we waited in any lines was literally 5 mins. We walked straight past some lines with wait times of 85 mins PLUS! in my books, the extra $$ was certainly worth it.
Most rides were also operating and with our passes, we were able to complete every single maze plus ride with time to sit down and eat dinner, plus do some shopping before leaving well before closing time!

Again, highly recommend this event for next year and we will be visiting again in future if our travel plans allow it!

I love the fact that a season pass at Universal Studios Hollywood goes so far. For one thing, there are loads of discounts and coupons (military discount for us) for these entries and during off season you can just walk onto almost every ride. If you haven't tried the minion ride, you haven't really lived. It's a fun place for the young and the young-at-heart. A great date place for couples no matter what age they are. Remember that it's not just about rides at this theme park, but about the experience of how movies are made and how special effects take place. Universal Walk is a fantastic place outside the park to continue the date by eating at one of the wonderful restaurants or taking a quick indoor skydiving adventure!
