Universal has always been great, but harry potter world adds in more shops and one amazing ride. We comfortably completed everything in about 10hrs on a busy day and had a great time. Easy uber pick up from the south end of Universal City walk. Rides were short but technically stunning.

Several years since we had been there. Great day and would recommend a visit. The best rides of the day: back lot tour, jerastic, and the mummy. The get sick motion rides like Harry Potter caused some downtime. Food and drinks are expensive but that should be expected. The butter beer was amazing and should be limited if you do... More

Amazing!! - absolutely loved Hogsmeade and everything Harry Potter themed! The 3D rides are just incredible and enjoyed the tour of the filming studios. This park also had amazing views over Hollywood!

I had been to Universal many many years ago out in LA and it was a lot of fun, lots of history and memorabilia from different movies, stars etc... Lots of fun attractions. It's changed a lot, I'm not a huge Harry Potter or Simpsons fan so I didn't find it to be all that exciting. Not much in terms... More

Universal studios is the place to visit if in LA. Great park and studio tour. Rides are very similar if you've visited Orlando, and this park is smaller, but still a great day out and the actual movie tour is worth a visit on its own. Park gets busy, so start early while queues are lower and start in wizarding... More

Not so big like the Florida parks but a great day out all the same. Make sure you do the studio tour as this is the best bit about the day.

Went here for the first time in 13 years. A couple of the rides were not working, but better safe than sorry. Attractions were good. Food offerings were good as well. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The two days for $129 was good value. Definitely recommend for back-lot tram tour - excellent. The special effects show was very good as... More

I have a 6 and 8 year old and we have been to Disneyland a few times. This Spring break, we decided to visit Universal Studio. I figured that they are old enough and have seen some of the movies that the rides are based on. It has been 18 years since I visited there also. I have to say,... More

We really had a blast here, it is the typical Universal studio experience but this time we did it with a front of line ticket, well worth it in the hot days we had, I know it is expensive but we blazed thru the lines and saved hours doing it and thus, could enjoy the entire park. But they had... More

We have visited this park previously on all entry levels, and this time we booked VIP tour. The cost is expensive at $500 AU per person - and worth every dollar. We started our tour in the morning, and inside the VIP area provides excellent amenities, buffet style breakfast, water bottles to take throughout the day, toiletries pack and our... More
