    Fantastic day out. Well worth getting a fast pass too as we managed to get through all of the rides in a day. Also really enjoyed the studio tour! Some of the virtual rides did give me a headache but I suffer from eye strain so that was to be expected. Overall a very unique and enjoyable experience. Nice touch to have misted fans dotted about the park too, to allow people to cool off! Prefer it to Disney land :)

    Amazing Park! Better then when I was a child! My kids (10 and 2) loved it. The themes and shows are awesome. The Universal Express passes made a huge difference and we are able to go right up into rides back to back! Love it and will return for the VIP Experience. Sooner, if I can sell my kidney to finance the trip :P

    Been to the Orlando one so was keen to get to this one. It’s smaller and more compact than its east cost counterpart but still great fun. The Mummy ride was my favourite, a roller coaster ride which the park lacks. The backlot tour was really good, the plane crabs scene from War of The Worlds was awesome to see. You can do the park in a day if you’re keen, we did all the rides and attractions we wanted to do. Great day out!

    The VIP experience is very much worth the extra money paid for. We felt so special, we got a valet parking and all you can eat gourmet breakfast and lunch, followed by a nice tour specially in the studios and other extra perks such as unlimited express line access and preferred seating at the shows. This is well worth it when lines and wait times can be as long as an hour or so. Our VIP pass made us get to the same ride 2 and 3 times and without line up. Also, it was my daughter birthday and they treated her very well. We ALL LOVED the experience.

    The VIP experience is well worth the extra money.

This is well worth it when lines and wait times can be as long as an hour or so. Our express pass made us wait as much as 2 to 3 minutes when the regular line had an hour or more. Also, hands down one of the best tour guides at the studio is Wendy, she's full of energy, kind and attentive and keeps your interest. Definitely recommend getting there before September 3, 2018 as the Jurrasic Park ride will be going through some changes, definitely worth checking out before it's too late.

    This is one place were you can bring the family and actually enjoy your stay. At least this day was perfect. The lines were very short and the weather was very forgiving, for it being summer. We even got a little rain to cool us off. This place has co.e a long way since the first time I came here. I believe it was in 1997. Now they have something for the whole family to enjoy. The new harry potter attraction is very cool to say the least. They hit it out of the park with that one.

    Hogwarts is amazing, All I got to say. Everything else was great but Hogwarts is my favorite. I could stay there all day, the 2 rides were awesome, butter beer was good, stores were awesome, and The Three Broomsticks was AMAZING and had very good/filling food. Great vibes all around. I can't imagine Wizardly World of Harry Potter in Orlando, since this one is smaller. Everyone was friendly. I'd do it all over again.

    Wonderful place. Sure it costs quite a bit to go in, but we went on a Thursday so it was not extremely busy. The longest wait we had for a ride was an hour, but well worth it. They do a wonderful job of making you feel immersed into the fictional universes of Hollywood. I recommend going as early as you can to experience everything in detail as there is much to see. Make sure to take the tour!

    Had a blast at universal. The lines go bye pretty quick not fast but you won't be in line for hours. In 1 day we were able to get on all the rides and also had time to Eat and look around. Everyone who works there are awesome. One of my favorites places I had more fun here than i did at Disney land. I would for sure go again no doubt .

    Absolutely stunning place! Must visit if you're in Los Angeles. There are enough rides and attractions to keep you engaged for the whole day! I do recommend doing Studio Tour first and at least doing Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride! Also do check the timings since on some days it closes at 10 PM instead of 8 PM which gives you more time to enjoy! There were plenty of options to eat and waiting time for rides was also reasonable (about 20-40 minutes). Fast passes are also available if required.

    We really enjoy our day there. The price is high (110$ per person) but it was worth it. If you buy your ticket by the webpage, you’ll enter one hour before

    this is a weak yes for me. if I didn’t pay almost double for the express pass it would have been a strong no.

    A lot of rides are pretty similar (using videos/animation to create an immersive 3D experience). Niece and nephew loved it though so it’s a thumbs up from me.
