Went with Harry Potter fan twin girls unfortunately not a patch on universal in Florida . Rides aren’t great mostly simulated . Lacking some good rollercoasters and a bit dated . No one watching lines and watched many people skip which really annoys me as I play by the rules . Food terrible and overpriced. Small enough for my kids to enjoy but I wouldn’t rush back

Thank julie G

They just don't care for guests' experience. This was a rather sad experience, and I regret to have taken my family through the pain of visiting this park. Ultimately, the park workers are utterly bureaucratic, and clearly not caring for park guests in their hearts. Here is just one example. When part of my family, mother and one child, got to the "Animal Actors" show, the other part, me and our other child, were only 3 min late, yet not allowed inside. The park workers guarding the entrance basically tormented and insulted us. First they said they don't believe me that my wife and child are inside, and made me call my wife so she would come to the entrance to get us. When I called and my wife told me that it is too crowded around her to come out, the workers said there is no single seat left in the show, which, as I confirmed shortly after, was a shameless lie. At the end they said they cannot let us join our family because that was against the "policy" of the park. We left, and the child who was with me was crying, upset that he cannot join his mother and his brother. Are these people completely without reason? Is this the kind of experience they would like their guests to have?

The park is great until you compare it to universal Orlando. There are not a huge amount of rides and the fast passes that we took out were more expensive than Orlando and as there were a lot less rides not great value for money. On the plus side the mummy ride was great and we rose on it multiple times. As with other parks food and drinks were a rip off.

Thank you for your feedback, Dharmesh. While being located in the middle of Los Angeles sure is fun, we do have to work to use our space creatively!

Really good rides, we bought Fastpass once per amusement, I would recommend it just works and you can almost do it all in one day.
