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!

"Good times, thanks in part to small lineups"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed November 16, 2017 NEW
Three of us visited on a weekday in November. Small crowds, so we were able to see most of the attractions, and enjoyed most of them. Mummy was voted the best ride, Hogwarts was also favourite, due in part to the fantastic design of the town and castle. Studio tour was kitschy but cute and fun. If each ride had had an hour-long line, I don’t think it would have been worth it, though. Food was, well, as expected, limited options, not very good, and a bit expensive. Glad we went, but can’t imagine ever going back.

"A great reliable theme park experience"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 16, 2017 NEW
One of the two main theme parks in LA (the other being Disneyland), this is always worth a visit when we’re in town. I was excited to see that they’ve opened the new Harry Potter area of the park (Hogsmeade & Hogworts), and they’ve added a fast & furious component to the studio tour. The Harry Potter area is pretty much exactly the same as the original in Universal Studios Orlando, except that they do not have the second Diagon Alley area (due to space restrictions). Never the less, as a Harry Potter fan this is a must see part of the visit (and bring your wallet for those little extra purchases). I gave this review 4 out of 5 because I wish Universal would investment more in renewing the rest of the park. 90% of the attractions have not changed for 20 years+ (e.g., Jurassic Park). Unlike Disneyland, Universal Studios is a 1 day visit and I would recommend getting one of the Fastpass options. Even in November there were a lot of people there, although the lineups didn’t exceed an hour on any rides. In the summer it’s a must to get fastpass. As with Disney, you need to carefully plan your day here to avoid unneccesary wait times and to be able to catch the scheduled shows like Waterworld. Prices are roughly on par with Disney, meaning its not going to be a cheap outing. That being said, this is one of the top destinations in LA for tourists. So enjoy.

"Brings Out The Kid In You!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 16, 2017 NEW
We have visited both Universal in Florida and this one in California several times. There certainly is something about theme parks that bring out the best kid in you when you are walking around the grounds smelling the carnival food and listening to all the theme park music and sounds of kids enjoying themselves. When we 1st arrived we were greeted by a staff member who tried to sell us on VIP tickets which included a tour, lunch and fast lane passes. They were $309 per person! My advice is NOT to go for it. He did try very hard to pressure us but I wasn't having any of that since I could feel his desperation in trying to close the sale to hit his quota. Regular entrance fee at this time of this review was $129.00 u.s. to enter park. The next price was $189 to bypass the line ups but only for 1 time for each ride ( you cannot use the pass more than once for the same ride) . Then the unlimited bypass line up pass would cost $209 which allows you to ride any ride as many times as you would like. It is worth spending the money for at least the $189 to save you from waiting approx. an hour for each ride. The Harry Potter Hogswarts theme is amazing, you almost feel like you are in the UK somewhere in the winter with all the snow on the roof tops. If you get motion sickness then this Harry Potter ride will get you in most cases! Another great ride was The MUMMY! My wife says this was the best ride in the park and went several times. I do not do many rides because I do get the motion sickness so if any of you need to know what you can or can't ride feel free to ask. We did go on the Studio tour which takes approx. 1 hour but it is well worth it. They have added two new attractions in the tour which is the Fast and Furious and King Kong, I will not spoil it so you can experience it yourself! OK enjoy!

"Well spent day..."

Glad we decided to go in spite of our back issues. it was a Saturday. Arrived early to beat the crowd. Free shuttle from Universal station came in very handy. Had a great time . Did almost every ride. HP and the Forbidden Journey, Olivanders , Trans formers - 3D ride and many more. Walking Dead is nothing much. At the Jurassic Park expected more dinosaurs. Unexpected drop at the end. Best way to cool off on a hot summer day. Not forgetting the characters while walking. Studio tour is a must. Make sure to be there on time for Waterworld and Animal Actors. Highly recommend the Waterworld show for excitement & enjoyment. At the end had a nice walk along universal city-walk Definitely the Entertainment Capital of LA. Be there and see for yourself how incredible it is..
