Never a better treat than having a frozen Butterbeer in the Wizarding World. Go after 5pm for fewer crowds. We were able to enjoy our favorite attractions over and over again!

"Brilliant day out"

Excellent for a days activities with fast paced rides and more shops than you can shake a stick at. Prices were typical theme park prices ie. Hiked up to the point of absurdity. Main attractions include Harry Potter, Transformers and the Mummy. The Harry Potter attractions is excellent with a authentic Hogsmede Village with shops eateries and great photo opportunities for fans of the franchise. Getting to the park is easy as it is very close to Universal City metro station and has a great little shuttle bus to take you up the hill to the park Staff were plentiful and friendly, ques for the rides not crazily long. A good tip is to join the single rider que longest waiting time for me was 5 mins rather than 30. Well worth a days visit and the entrance fee.

Positives first: the current Studio Tour train/tram ride is AWESOME, with several 3D experiences; Harry Potter Forbidden Journey had a reasonable waiting line for the length and fun of its 3D flight; getting turned into a Minion at Minion Mayhem was also fun; the 4 long escalator rides down to Transformers the Ride were worth it - the waiting line had many entertaining 'introductions' to the 'mission' ahead that the grandson deemed "AWESOME"; and I really liked the Butter Beer Not as fun: as expected pricey snacks and "certified meat" Krusty burgers Not at ALL worth the wait: Flight of the Hippogriff" ~45 minutes for a weak, less than 1 minute, roller coaster ride; and any other for which the posted wait was more than 60 minutes I'd still give this experience an overall BIG thumbs up.

We paid How Much? Start with $25 just to park in the furthest away lot, then walk and walk and walk to get to the line to pay over $100 per person....more if you wanted to buy a fast pass. We only had 4 hours and we only wanted to see the new Potter section. It was impressive, but not sure it was that impressive. Lunch for the 2 of us was over $75.

"Not worth the admission cost"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 18, 2017 NEW
The rides were ok and park itself was very well kept however there were things that made no sense. Like a small pizza costing $9.99 and the unlimited refill cups costing $14.99 and there are hardly any places to fill them up. It was ok but not worth $105pp plus stupidly marked up food costs.

We decided to get the VIP Tour and it was amazing. The guide was funny and very knowledgeable. The park is divided in two parts upper part and lower part and there are stairs to go up and down to the different rides and areas. We did the studio tour and some rides before and after the lunch. We didnt have to make any lines coz the guide enter us trough the fast line and then when we finished with the guide we could use the fast pass on our own so no long lines at all. The lunch was really good, it was a buffet with different choices. You can leave your phone charging while eating in a set station they have inside the restaurant. Unfortunately I saw it only at the end of our meal. For the Harry Potter ride you must leave your bag in a locker, with the guide she kept it for us but then when on our own we didnt like the long line just to put the bag in the locker so what we did was to go down and next to the Mummy ride was a locker, plenty space and no lines (I dont remember how long you have without paying but it was more than enough for us). Then go up and ride with our fast pass the Harry Potter again and then go down and ride couple of rides before getting our bag. For us this work well and fast. In the Simpsons area there is a place they sell huge donuts, they are like for 3 to 4 people and they are delicious. We were only 2 and almost couldnt finish. Definitely I would come back if I ever visit again Los Angeles.
