It really a small park and if not busy with short lines this would only take a day. It was super busy with 4 hour wait times day we went. Thankfully, we decided to do the VIP tour. Yes it expensive but worth every penny. It included express pass parking, breakfast, dinner and tour guide takes right the rides. On super crowded day we were able ride all the rides, and catch a show.Our favorite part is Hogwarts since we are Harry Potter fans. We really enjoyed the back stage tour seeing iconic spots where movies came to life. At Christmas Whoville is in center of the park photos of the grinch and evening a tree lighting every 30 mins.Universal is strict on mask must be worn outside and inside. They do check vaccine cards or a negative Covid test to enter the park. Can not be a gator mask either.

We had a lot of fun, the park is excellent. It was packed but with the express ticket we were able to play anything we want without the wait.

I haven't been to Universal Studios Hollywood in 5 years, and it's still such a great park! If you're only going for 1 day, I would highly recommend getting the Express Pass so that you can go on every ride & see all the shows.If you only have 1 day, I would recommend starting at the Lower Lot with the Transformers, Jurassic Park, and The Mummy ride and riding those first in the morning since there are less people. To be honest, after riding those 3 rides in a row, I had a little bit of motion sickness.Something that I thought was pretty cool was that the Studio Tour at Universal Studios Hollywood has the only behind the scenes tour out of all the Universal parks (Tokyo and Orlando). The WaterWorld show was really cool to watch, as well as the Animal Actors show. I absolutely loved the new Secret Life of Pets ride, but it only takes 2 people per car so it'll be quite a wait.In terms of food, I read online that the Three Broomsticks had the best food of the park, and I have to say that it was pretty good for amusement park food. I also got a churro and a pretzel, and both were pretty tasty. After the park closed, we got food at Citywalk, and even though it's overpriced (Taco Bell there was 2x the price), it's definitely more for convenience. One of my go-tos is Johnny Rockets, and we also tried Bubba Gump which was good, but there might be a bit of a wait (we waited 35 minutes).We didn't really go shopping at any of the stores, since most of the merchandise is also available at the Citywalk stores (which are open later than the park).I would highly recommend this park to anyone who enjoys movies, thrill-seeking rides, and of course Harry Potter world. Also, Super Nintendo World will be opening here, which is super exciting!! I can't wait to come back once it opens :)

First review on here after visiting last weekend. We went on a Saturday and arrived right at 9AM and bought the front of the gate parking ($60) which was nice but not a must do.What is a must do is the EXPRESS PASS.At 9AM the park was not too crowded for many of the rides so I would recommend saving your express pass for mid-afternoon if there is a long line so you can ride your favorite rides more than once. Around 1 PM the ride in Harry Potter was at a 110 minute wait and we were able to get on in less than 10 minutes with our express pass.I would go straight to the Lower Lot first and go on those rides first (Transformers, the Mummy, and Jurassic Park (my favorite ride) as it is a hike to get there. After that we went to the Upper Lot and did the studio tour and all of those rides as well and finished with Harry Potter World. Great experience and we rode every ride, ate lunch at the 3 Broomsticks (very quick service actually) and shopped all within 4 hours. Well run place!

This is an qwesome ride with a surprise twist at the end. It really does feel like ''riding the movies" and I highly recommended it to all. It's so well done and I can;t wait to go back again one day very soon.

This is my favorite theme park by far and we have been to all of them in California. It's not too big it's not too small the rights are not super intense and still entertaining. We usually try to take the kids at least twice a year and it's always a blast.

First time ever to any large Amusement park such as Universal Studios. So much to do, so much to see. Next time will do two days instead of one. Everything was pretty clean and inviting. There were thousands due to the holiday, but easy to navigate all day. EXPRESS PASS definitely made the day easier and most enjoyable…

We were able to make all the rides and shows by buying the universal express. Definitely think about it so you will not be standing in lines all day.

If you have children with special needs, ie: Autism, they dont treat you well, have no accomidations for them, nor a quiet place for those sensory issues, and recentering, we bought tickets ahead of schedule , arrived and were told our kiddos would miss out on alot of the attractions due to them being down, refurbish,etc. It was a waste of money, we wanted our money back, but they told us, sorry no. We couldnt even get down the lower parts, due to the elevators being broken, and couldnt take our stroller down the esclator.. very disappointed in so much.. Not what I remember as a child.
