out and about on Veterans day it pays to arrive early, and pair up for rides to avoid waiting in long lines.... often placards are raised looking for two riders, this is your opportunity to jump the lines.... where lines were up to 2hours long wait, we did not wait longer than 45min.... may have been luck. Transformers was the... More

Visited on the December 2nd 2016 Arrived at 945 and stayed untill 615 so long day out! Had an amazing time, set out really well, everyone friendly and helpful, only disappointment was that the Christmas area was not open until the 3rd December which was annoying as I love Christmas, personally think they should have it open from the 1st...

I absolutely loved the rides at Universal Studios. I was doing my best to get to all the fun places in Los Angeles, and this is one of the places that is truly fun! I loved the Harry Potter world, it was so realistic it felt like I had fallen into the pages of the book and was seeing things... More

We had a short 3 day trip to Universal studio but I felt that 3 days were more than enough time to visit. We had an amazing time visiting the park. We purchased the VIP line passes to skip lines but quickly realized that it was not the best way to spend your money because we used it for only... More

I'm sure most people, at least in the US, are aware of what Universal Studios is. So, I'm not going to go into great detail, but I will say that the amount of detail and effort put into the attractions is impressive and, for many people this is quite a trip. I'm not a huge fan of expensive tickets, tourist... More

Last time I came was 20 year ago. Jaws tour was there and also back to the future, Et, backfire, etc. Today I found Harry Potter, Sherk, the simpsons, mommy, etc. It was empty. Then we experience all the shows. I liked them however must of them are short in time. Not bad for a waiting line of 10 minutes... More

Take the Red line subway to the universal city. If you posess an online purchased ticket then you are allowed to early entry at 8.00AM. This would give you best possible chances to cover all the attractions in a one day. It depends upon the days you vist. I took a Friday and it was very busy at about 11.00AM.... More

Visiting LA, this was an opportunity we would not have again. Easy to get to via the metro, once you exit the metro station you need to walk over the bridge to get the courtesy bus to the studios (it's not very clear). It wasn't busy, which I suspect was a godsend. Rides are good but fairly short. Lots of... More
