Universal Studios Hollywood, Los Angeles

4.4
For an ultimate Hollywood experience, visit Universal Studios Hollywood, a film studio, theme park, and a self-contained city all its own. One of the oldest Hollywood studios still in use, this show business complex considers itself "the entertainment capital of Los Angeles." Originally created to offer tours of real film studios, sets, and sound stages, the complex now offers live shows, thrill rides, and behind-the-scenes presentations about the movie-making process. To see the highlights, take a tram tour of the sound stages and sets designed specifically for some of the studio's biggest blockbusters. You can also choose from indoor and outdoor roller-coaster rides that provide you the chance to face King Kong, a shark attack, dinosaurs, and a powerful earthquake.

  • Super fun day with the family. Be prepared to wait a few hours for the major attractions. Express passes are definitely worth buying. The child swap option is a really great concept that allows each parent to ride without waiting in line twice. All theme parks should have this concept. It makes it for a more family friendly experience. Overall worth the money for the experience and memories.
  • The best place to visit with family for a wonderful time. Lots of awesome rides and things to do. Harry Potter world is their prime attraction. Transformers ride, Jurassic Park are next best. Do not miss the studio tour and do not forget to carry a good Camera as you will be clicking pics all day. Prepare to walk...a lot as this park is HUGE, but it is worth all of it as it is the most beautiful theme park in LA.
