It's difficult to give a simple rating to this place. If you're a child, particularly one brought up on Harry Potter books, it's probably 'Excellent' and if you're an adult it's closer to the 'Terrible' end of the range (unless you have an obsessive interest in popular culture). One thing you definitely need to know is that the queues are... More

You must go to Universal Studios even if it is rather expensive. It is fantastic. The Harry Potter section is simply amazing and my family really enjoyed the Simpsons area. The animal show is very much worth seeing as is of course the Studio tour. ALL staff were just so helpful and lovely. Food was nice and not too expensive.... More

My son and I planned a one day visit to Universal. We had an amazing time and were able to visit all of the rides and attractions. Don't miss the backlot tour.

We came early in the morning and avoided the waiting in line at the main attractions. Harry Potter section was stunning. The Transformers ride was also very good. We spent almost eight hours there but it did not feel that long. Compared to the Orlando alternatives we really enjoyed this park.

Had a wonderful time at Universal studios. We spent almost 10 hours at that place and that too was not sufficient. Had to wait in lines for about 90 mins at each ride/show. The best part was the most popular attraction at the park- Harry Potter. The ride was worth the wait. We managed only 4 rides/shows during our visit.... More

We went to the park with the sole purpose of visiting the Harry Potter attraction. We had seen it in Florida a few years back and were curious to see if there were any differences. Nope, it's exactly the same! As big Potter fans, we were delighted to walk into Hogsmead. The day was cold and rainy and it contributed... More

Universal Studios was a great day out. Plenty to see and do. Interactive and fun. Studio tour was really good. The lines were not too bad either. Not being peak season some things were not open but overall no problem.

Our goal with Universal Studios was to spend most of the day in Harry Potter world. We didn't care about much else. We just paid for the regular one day admission and entered at 9am. We went straight to Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and only had a 30ish minute wait (we saw that grow to 110 minutes throughout... More

Took this tour with my wife and it was the best tour I have ever taken. Seeing the sets where there film sitcoms and movies. Now when I watch a movie or sitcom I can see how it was dressed up. The behind the sets. Just everything was amazing. A must see tour. All the props that anyone TV or... More
