I haven't been here in years and oh my have the theme parked changed - for the better of course. I always wanted to ride their Harry Potter ride while also making my way through the park sipping their infamous butter beer. To my suprise, I didn't know there was two types of butter beer? Frozen versus just served cold? I prefer the refreshing option and not the icy style of drinks so I went with the regular one. It was BOMB! I totally thought it was a sugary drink but it wasn't crazy sweet.

The only downfall is that the park is small so it's easy to finish it in half a day.

Universal Studios is fun for the first time you go in LA. Universal in Orlando is larger but definitely recommended to visit the LA location.

Fun park and super cheap compared to Disney. It is small and you can do practically everything in one day if you really wanted. If you do two days, then space it out or you’ll run out of stuff. Studio Tour is really fun but like an hour long plus at least half an hour in line so be prepared.

My boyfriend took me here once. We had a very fun time. My favorite part of coming here was being able to stand on the deck of the Bates Motel, the actual movie set from Psycho! One thing I was disappointed about was that I did not see the cheesy mechanical shark used in the movie Jaws during our tour. I also missed the chance to see the Lucille Ball exhibit. I am so disappointed that I missed it. My grandfather knew her and told me stories about the first time he met her. My grandparents introduced me to the I Love Lucy TV show and I have been a fan ever since. I bet she was a fascinating person!

I bought an annual pass for the second year in a row and still love every visit. This place is fun for adults and teens but maybe not so much for younger kiddos.

The back lot tour is a must see experience while you're at Universal. A great behind the scenes view of the studio and insight into how films are made.

Turkey,

The most enjoyable part of visiting LA. You experience highly enjoyable adrenaline in a short time. Studio tours are my favorite. May be you can see an artist. Shopping is expensive. You should be ready for long que. You should experience harry potter, mumy and dead walkers.

Universal Studios Hollywood follows the Disneyland/California Adventure park model. It tries hard but misses the high mark set by Disney. It is half the size of Disneyland at half the entry price but it feels a bit flat by comparison. Hogwarts and Hogsmead are the standout highlights. The park is based on rides which are designed mostly as roller coasters which are aimed at teenagers and adults. There is very little for children who don’t want to be thrown around and scared .

Great rides and fun characters as well as it was fun seeing the different themed areas of the park--Jurassic Park, Minions, Simpsons, Harry Potter, etc. The studio tour, billed as a ride, was only 45 minutes long compared to a several hour tour of the WB studio set itself apart by making some of the stops interactive. Unlike WB, you are not allowed off of the tram to explore various areas of the studio.
