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.

Be prepared for a long day! But it's worth it... we did Universal in a 12hr day, plenty of queuing (to be expected) but there's lots to do for all ages. Rides are great fun (although there's only abou... more »
Ein großer Spaß! Hier gibt es mehr 3D-basierte als klassische Fahrgeschäfte. Sie sind auf dem neuesten Stand der Technik und die Themen werden auch angepasst.

Long ago, there were still rides like "Back to the Future" they are now called Harry Potter, Transformers o.a. The idea is certainly similar, but always different entertaining. Unfortunately much on the day of the classics Jurrasic Park - The Ride from, a pity, because it was very hot and a bit of cooling would have done well ;-) We spent a lot of money on the Express.Pass but did not regret it. Within a few minutes, you pass the long queues and you can get in immediately. Waiting times otherwise like 60 minutes or longer. And here I am in a comparison with Disneyland. Sure, you can't compare it 100% but there are no tickets for a permanent express or FAst lane entry and you create much less than at Universal. We also enjoyed front-gate parking for €60, very handy, but if you don't live that far away you should consider a taxi.
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.
