"only if you have not been in a while"

i has been almost 20 years since we went. without the addition of harry potter and a few other things i may not have felt the need to return. The backlot tour itself is worth the admission. The newish 3d portions of the tram ride are spectacular. Harry potter land is very well done. If you have anxiety about riding the main ride do not worry, it is possible to avoid any sense of motion sickness by looking away from the screens if things get too intense. Be aware that many of universals rides are motion simulator based so ride one and skip the rest if it does you in. The mummy ride is great, and jurassic park is still very fun, albeit short. City walk outside the park was surprisingly well done and fun. Be aware that universal has some of the most expensive food of any theme park in california so consider eating outside. Park is a one day event, any longer and you will start searching for things to do.

Even though the day started off with a hint of rain, we quickly purchased some panchos and soon enough the skies cleared and we had one of the best family days ever. The Harry Potter area was amazing, so well put together. And didn't wait in line for so long as well. Enjoyed the studio tour as well. Loads of places to sit and wait for the kids to have fun in rides.

We had heard a lot about USH so it was the first thing to do on a weekend trip to LA. We booked our tickets online through the USH website, that way we qualified for early entry at 8 AM. We went on a Saturday in Feb'17. It was raining now and then but was manageable. Here is the way we covered the attractions: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Studios Tour - do not miss Lower Bay rides - Jurassic Park, Revenge of the Mummy, Transformers --- Lunch Break ---- Upper Bay Rides & Special Effects Show

The main reason we went to USH was for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Universal Studio has a number of different areas (Shrek, Simpsons, Minions, etc.), but we made sure to be there when the park opened with our printed tickets that we had bought online. Get the tickets online so you can bypass the ticket booths. Even so, it still took over 20 minutes to get on the ride. We were a family of 5 adults and 2 children. The grounds of the castle and Diagon Alley were awesome. Going into the castle and waiting in line was not bad at all, since there were many things to entertain us while we were waiting. I could not handle the ride itself, and had to close my eyes almost the entire time as it was rather a nauseating experience with all the bumps and turns and 3-D effects. The younger child got very scared and refused to go on any other rides in the park (other than the child-friendly rollercoasters like the Minions and Griffins). The rest of our group loved every minute of it, and wanted to go back in line to experience it again. Because of the children, we stood in line for 30 minutes to get a wand in Ollivander's wand shop (and watch a wand choose a witch). USH is making bank selling wands to children, especially the interactive wands that can do magic within the HP section of the park. When we asked the kids later what was their favorite part, it was definitely doing magic with their interactive wands. The Studio Tour was OK but rather dated, and boring for the kids. It was pretty much the same as it was in 1987 when I was there last, except for the Fast & Furious grand finale, which was great. The adults loved the Walking Dead and Jurassic Park, but were less impressed with Transformers which they thought was too loud and rather shallow without the intrigue that Harry Potter had. We did not get to see everything because the park closed at 6 pm, which was a bit of a disappointment. Although a visit to USH is expensive, it was a fun day for our family.
