So you are going to Universal Studios Hollywood. The big decision is what ticket to buy. There is a VIP tour, front of the line passes, and general admission. I really looked hard at the VIP tour, however, was advised against it by the VIP...More

It’s a big place. You can buy a ticket before you go and there’s a skip the line option called Universal Express. If you do that, you’re looking at about $180/person. You can save by buying ahead online. The tour is included in the price...More

We all loved our day at Universal, perfect time of year to visit - no queues! Harry Potter rides proved the most popular with teenage granddaughters,however we all loved the back lot tour.

Me and my wife visited the place on Monday and it was not that crowded. I personally think that going on weekdays is the best.

I wouldn’t bother unless you are in peak season as the lines were not too bad and an express pass was quite a bit extra $$$

Unfortunately the prices are slightly higher during summer time. I am surprised they didnt put up the prices on their website.Also they might include the parking.

Yes, We had paper tickets & no problem, once we were there because of lines We did "purchase" a "unlimited" fast pass. Well worth it. We were there I think a very busy holiday week/ in summer.
