“Nice but not suitable for my 5 year old boy”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

My 5 year old did not really enjoyed the place as he was not able to ride most of the rides... But we did enjoyed the studio tours, it was very fun. Highly recommended.
Will probably visit again if we r back in LA in the near future.

“Mucho fun!”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

Prior to this visit, it had been about 20 years since my last visit to Universal Studios Hollywood. I think the tour is a must, but it is lacking. The best part of the tour is the earthquake simulation. Other than that, the King Kong 360 3D is disappointing and dizzying. The rides are great. The Simpsons ride is the best one at the park and you don't have to be a Simpsons fan to enjoy it. The Mummy ride is fun, but leaves you disappointed as it is way too short. Jurassic Park is a must ride and the drop is scary. I don't think there is a need to spend more than one day here unless you plan to take it really slowy, but I can't wait to go back. We visited the park on a Thursday and there were no lines for anything all day. Prior to visiting, I had considered purchasing a "Front of the Line" pass and it would have been a complete waste. I think something like that would be better utilized during the busy summer months or on weekends. I did get the priority parking, which put us right up at the front entrance where the famous globe and red carpet is. I think the parking is worth it. You can spend a lot of time in City Walk and it's fun to look at all the shops!

“Seriously the best tour”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

There are many studio tours offered but hands down, Universal, has the best one. Besides having a theme park and pedestrian walkway to explore as well, the studio tour is informative, fun and worth the money. *Tip* Buy the two for one ticket deal directly through Universal. (you can visit two times for the price of one!)
