Universal Studios Hollywood (California) Reviews
Newest Review: ... so I didn't pay to much attention on the way in. At the end of the day, I did have a look around but none of the shops really caught my eye - expensive tat! Miniature Oscar statues, movie memorabilia - that sort of thing. We didn't have to queue for too long to get into the park, around 30 minutes and this was peak season. Once in the park, I picked up a map and I have to say I was quite surprised as to how few big rides there were in comparison to some of the UK theme parks. On average each ride lasted about 90 seconds and the queues were on average 90 minutes - I know that's pretty standard for theme parks but... The only ride tha... more

In a country where size matters and everything is HUGE - I was quite surprised at how small Universal Studios Hollywood is... It's located on the outskirts of LA, we were driving in from San Diego so it's difficult to say how long it would take to reach from central LA. On the way out, we got stuck in the rush hour traffic and it took about an hour and a half to get to our hotel. Parking was not an issue - it has a number of huge car parks and plenty of helpful attendants to point you in the direction of a free space. When you enter the complex, you walk through what can be best described as a high street - offering all sorts of gift shops, ... Read the complete review

On a recent trip to Los Angeles, my boyfriend and I visited the infamous Universal Studios in Hollywood. We had been told by many people this was a must do, so on 29th March 2010, we decided to make our way. **Note** Universal Studios is located in Universal City and is not accessible by walking from Hollywood, you must arrange a taxi or transfer. (Transfer review to follow). The morning was warm and we pulled up outside to see the large globe spinning with Universal Studios written across it. The trademark that everybody would recognise and associate with Universal Studios, so after a few pictures we headed for the red carpet and walked ... Read the complete review

This review is solely about the Tower of Terror 'coaster', in Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly Universal Studios) theme park, in Orlando Florida. To give it its full title, it's called "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror". If you're old enough, you may have seen The Twilight Zone, an American TV show hosted by Rod Serling which originally aired between 1959-64. I'm not old enough to have seen the original, but I remember enjoying the re-runs of this 'horror' show in the UK while I was young. This ride centers round the Hollywood Tower Hotel, a fictional hotel featured in a specially commissioned mini-episode of the Twilight ... Read the complete review

Universal Studios - Hollywood Universal Studios in Hollywood is the largest film and television studios in the world. It is also a larger than the one I went to in Australia. To see the shows and the whole area properly it would take two days. I only took one day to go around it but I wasn't going on most of the rides available. We decided to do a tour to the studios from our hotel with a company called VIP Tours. To be in the park all day it cost $89 for an adult and $75 for a child. One American dollar is equal to 0.57 United Kingdom pounds. This price was transport to and from the park and entry into the park itself. Once inside the park you can do as you ...

Who Needs Mickey Mouse? ======================= When we were in LA we had the choice of whether to go to Disney World or Universal Studios. Never being big Disney fans we went to Universal. Of course I can't comment on how good Disney World is we definitely do not regret choosing Universal for our day. The park opens at ten and we were in the relatively short queue at the entrance with our tickets, after our fingerprints were taken we were in. Being a weekday the park was reasonably quiet although it did pick up as the day progressed. We decided to go on the studio tour first to leave us the rest of the day to explore the ...

Discovery Cove ( Florida) - Very relaxing and unique experience Very expensive
Disney's River Country - Small, Charming I could be wrong but this park might be closed permanently now
Disney's Typhoon Lagoon - A fun place to spend at least 3-4 hours during the hottest part of the day The lazy river can be overcrowded - you need to keep an eye on small children. Sharp sides & bottom
