Universal Studios Hollywood, Los Angeles

4.4
For an ultimate Hollywood experience, visit Universal Studios Hollywood, a film studio, theme park, and a self-contained city all its own. One of the oldest Hollywood studios still in use, this show business complex considers itself "the entertainment capital of Los Angeles." Originally created to offer tours of real film studios, sets, and sound stages, the complex now offers live shows, thrill rides, and behind-the-scenes presentations about the movie-making process. To see the highlights, take a tram tour of the sound stages and sets designed specifically for some of the studio's biggest blockbusters. You can also choose from indoor and outdoor roller-coaster rides that provide you the chance to face King Kong, a shark attack, dinosaurs, and a powerful earthquake.

  • Expensive, crowded, and nowhere near as cool as Disneyland. That about says it all play the only reason to go here is for the occasional cool concert they might have or on the area code City Walk if.....  more »

  • Bought 3 Adult VIP tickets months ago, now the park is closed at least until the end of May, but I’m getting the run-around about how to get a refund. They say I must phone them due to privacy issues....  more »

  • Universal Studios is great fun for the whole family! We loved spending our day here. There are lots of attractions to explore and the rides are great fun. My favourite rides included the Jurassic Park and the Harry Potter rides! They are amazing, so detailed and so much fun! We also really loved the backstage tour that had many fun surprises worked in. I highly recommend visiting Universal Studios Hollywood, for a day or a couple days! You'll have a really fun time!
  • Great place to visit at least once in lifetime. For kids it is amazing to see all the characters coming alive. Water world was just awesome and some breathtaking stunts. Harry Potter 3D ride is simply cool. Jurassic park ride, Transformers fight, Jaws depiction, the facades etc were simply unbelievable. It's a must for any kid and adults like me who are still kids at heart.
  • This place was Awesome! Just love the decor in all the buildings they had. The employees were super nice and friendly. The lines were fast and easy. Harry Potter was probably my favorite place and how amazing it was. The restaurant they had were good, it just was a great experience for me and my family. Thank you for a great time.
  • I love Universal Studios! My wife loves Harry Potter and Harry Potter World is where we spend a lot of our time. There are crowds (it is a theme park) so try to go on non peak days if you hate crowds. The lines generally move quickly. If you are going to buy food & beverages make sure to get Butter Beer from the Harry Potter location. And my recommendation is to get food on the City Walk instead of in the park, food there is a lot better.
  • I love it here. Went for NYE. They had excellent signage directing us wherever we needed to go. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The lines weren't too bad. I don't recommend the single rider line to go faster. They definitely cater to the fast passers so if you can afford it it's worth it. Not a crazy countdown. I half expected a screen of some sort but that's alright. Still a great night .
