Been on the Universal tour at least a dozen times over 20+ years (hard not to go wjhen your friends from out of town come in and say "where should we go?")...always enjoyable and they keep updating it. Jurassic Park ride is terrific! Great stuff on the whole tour and great restaurants at CityWalk after your tour is done.

Worth every dollar! We got to go to every ride (more than once), we had guided walk through all the studio, walk around the sets, lunch in VIP lounge was simply great. All in all, great experience!

We had a great time introducing our sweet friend from Peru a little bit of LA. Universal Studios offers something for all ages. Great history and an insight to "movie making" was learned. Everyone should visit this wonderful park! Hogwarts was the best! The Harry Potter ride is better than any amusement park ride I have ever been on!

My wife and I took our 9 year old on a Tuesday during the USA school period . I think this is one of the important things to consider if it fits with your schedule. The other is the VIP experience , it is VERY VERY expensive, but in our opinion it's the best way to go . We drove... More

Loved Harry Potter World - just to see the smile on my Daughter's face was heartwarming. Bit busy - it was Christmas Vacation time. Butter beer tasted just how I imagined it would.

I love coming here and find it less stressful to navigate than some of the other area theme parks. I personally feel the lines are a bit shorter here but cant really prove it. There are some roller-coaster rides, but the attraction's are more show based which ties well into universals history of being a movie company. For roller-coaster kicks... More

My husband and I are in our mid 50's and were invited as a guest. If you have trouble walking or standing along time or cannot handle 3D, this is not for you. Most of the rides are fast and include 3D which makes me sick. The parking lot is very far from the entrance to the park. Once your... More

Always great to get an annual pass for locals so you can enjoy this park at your own pace...quick getaway after lunch, a night out (opened until 10pm at least in Jan), a stopover anytime (to make 10,000 steps), etc. if not a resident, still worth it for Harry Potter. Amazing!!!! For those who can only handle a drip of... More

Must take studio tour. It's 3D now and the special effects are awesome. Love the new King Kong and Fast and Furious in 3D or is it 4D, you feel like you are apart of the shows

The VIP Experience is not cheap, but if you are not great at navigating amusement parks or find it all overwhelming, it might be worth the money. The VIP experience includes park admission with a tour guide who takes you to the front of the line for every attraction, a special behind the scenes tour, and continental breakfast and a... More
