Great but long lines

I only wish that they could spend more time in the 3D section. The the rides to be longer of course! I think is just too pricey

We were fortunate to not have long queues for many of the rides. Suggest checking out websites (such as isitpacked.com) for ghost town days. I wasn't that interested in Harry Potter World and neither were my kids as they were a bit older but I'm glad we did as the Forbidden Journey ride was great. The Mummy ride was the... More

Crowded on a Thursday afternoon. The rides are great and all (thrilling and immersive), but unless you bought their "premium fastpass" (which I didn't), you gotta wait. And I mean. WAIT. Queues can go as long as 300 minutes or more. In the morning, the crowd was small. But by the afternoon 12pm, the place was packed with sardines. It's... More

We visited towards the end of July. The lines were long and it was very hot outside so thank heavens for the water misters in the lines! The studio tour is still my favorite part of Universal Studios; it's definitely a must see! Have your camera ready, as they don't stop long for photo opportunities. The food is reasonably priced...

Since my last review in 2015, Universal opened the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the Walking Dead walk through, as well as refurbished and expanded the Jurassic Park ride and Fast and Furious addition to the tram tour. Jurassic Park was well done, with an homage to Jurassic World, and the addition of more benign dinosaurs prior to the... More

If I was an 11 yo boy, I would love Universal. As it is, I've never read a Harry Potter book nor seen a move, and am far from the demographic that finds Transformers cool. Many of the rides are fast-paced, visual experience, where you are jostled in place in sync with the action. They made me nauseous. That being... More

I went to this pace two years ago and it was ok but now compared to then is night and day. The Simpsons land is finished and open as is Harry potter world. Both lands are great fun and well worth the price of admission. If you see long line times for a particular ride try the single rider option.... More

We easily filled a day here. Was a bit disappointed with the nature of the rides. Most were virtual reality. We have had more fun at other Universal Studios. I would definitely upgrade to the fast pass as you can wait up to 2 hours for a 15 second ride!!

Booked the two day ticket with early access to Harry Potter on the first day. Took advice from here and went straight to the Forbidden Journey ride. Got to ride it three times in that first hour. It's awesome. Ride the Hippogriff Roller Coaster any time as it isn't busy and not that good in comparison. Is it packed dot... More

I was a little disappointed as it was a lovely day, but very expensive. We had a feeling that all it is just a huge commercial playground for all ages. It was ok, but would not do it again.
