Universal Studios - Hollywood Vs Florida?

I'm trying to decide whether to visit Universal Hollywood when I am over in LA this summer.

Visited the Florida park a few years ago but not sure how different the 2 parks are? I know there are also new rides such as Simpsons which wasn't in florida when I was there. Would normally give it a miss but quite keen to do the studio tour at the Hollywood one

Any help would be good

The florida parks are a lot bigger with way more rides but the Hollywood studio backlot tour is actually a working studio unlike the florida version which could be interesting if you are into film and tv. Otherwise i would skip it if you already been to florida

Florida has two universal parks.

If you compare Universal studios park only (exc IOA) then the LA one wins hands down in terms of atmospehere alone.

The studio tour is a definite plus in LA. The Orlando park thankfully does not pretend its a hollywood theme park and does not have a tram tour.
