I'm normally not the mad and angry type but this place is such a waste of time! Overcrowded is an understatement. We visited just after the holidays ended and u would think that it would give you a chance of trying everything but that's not the case. In the off season of Universal Studios the average wait times is 200... More

As a self-confessed movie geek I had no choice but give this experience a go! And despite the pricey front of line ticket I didn't regret! It is a very professionally built all day long entertaining theme park. Seeing all the sites and scenes from those blockbusters and TV shows is exciting. The rides are nice althogh the Transformers was... More

We gained early entry for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Don't do it any other way. It's too crowded otherwise. We went for the Harry Potter part of the park and would give that a five if you're a fan. With early admission, we went to the main ride first and had no wait. Later, the waits were longer.... More

Enjoyed a cool afternoon and evening at Universal. Loved the studio tour which was part movie history, part Disneyland ride, on a tram, with 3D glasses. Kiosks throughout the park advertise wait times at the various attractions. The Shrek attraction was great as was the Harry Potter feature and tide. Dinner at Johnny Rocket was a perfect ending as our... More

We went on the 31st of December 2016. We did the VIP Experience with a tour guide called Kevin Williams, he certainly made the day very entertaining with his knowledge of the sets, his quick wit made it even more enjoyable. Although it started to rain during the day, Kevin handed out poncho's for everyone. Not having to wait for... More

Went on a low density day got to go on majority of the rides. Rides were fun! After a while simulators got to be overwhelming. Jurassic park was fun just a short 20 min wait. We did single riders to get on extra rides

I have visited Universal Studios three times now. This time I decided to get the front of line pass. It is expensive but worth the money. I always go in the summer and its always packed and very hot. Have always found that you are queuing up in the heat in long lines and it gets abit too much. The... More

What a wonderful experience! We opted for the VIP experience as it was the only way we had a chance of being able to walk on "Wisteria Lane". Our wonderful tour guide DONNA asked at the start of the day what was of most interest to us and after telling her it would be my dream to be able to... More

I would highly recommend paying for the front of line if you can. We went during low period and the queues were still very long. Having the pass meant we got on every ride and really got value out of the one day we were there.
