Went on a Thursday and was there with my 8 year old son right at 10. Prepurchased tickets and got through the scanning line & security line quite quickly. We went straight to Harry Potter and enjoyed it immensely. Got an interactive wand which unlocks spells throughout the village, my son had a great time doing this. The main ride within Hogwarts was brilliant...crazy and spooky, amazing effects. So well done. The studio tour is a must especially if your a fan of entertainment world behind the scenes & the rides & special effects during that tour are great. All in all it was an amazing experience, a definite must!

This was my 2nd visit to this park, 1st was in 2015.

Since my last visit they have opened the wizarding world of Harry potter, wow just wow, simply an impressive area.

This is a great little park, if its ur 1st visit, do the vip tour. But as this was my 2nd visit i didnt do the VIP trip, but i did purchase the unlimited express pass. The only way to the park, no lines, so worth the extra cost. Instead of waiting an hour for the harry pottor ride, we walked straight on. A great time saver.

The jarassic park is closed atm and changed to a jarassic world ride. The park is fun, has a good mix of different rides. Can easily be done in 1 day if you have the express pass.

Ok so the place is very expensive 109$ a ticket in advance. There are many people at the park, even though we came in a good day where you needed to wait only 10-15 minuts in the queue rides. you should start with the popular rides and then go down the other. It is possible to do all the rides in a day.
Before begining the park, you should take the tour bus, it is incrediable !
All rides have 1 thing in common : it gives you a blurry and diziness feeling

It’s a big place. You can buy a ticket before you go and there’s a skip the line option called Universal Express. If you do that, you’re looking at about $180/person. You can save by buying ahead online. The tour is included in the price of admission. I did it first thing in the morning & not much of a line. It takes about an hour & I was pleasantly surprised how much of the backlot they show you. They also have to do the show biz thing by taking you into Jurassic Park & Fast & Furious & having you put on 3D glasses so you can get shook around & be part of the little show they put on for you. I’d rather have more tour like Warner Bros or Paramount do. There’s also individual shows you can see again for the price of admission. I saw a special effects show & trained animals shows that were pretty good. Yes, you can go see Harry Potter’s castle & the Simpsons town courtesy of deals they made with other studios. There’s also some great views going to the lower lot. I got 7 hrs out of the place which is good for me & theme parks. Depends on what you are looking for.
