Spent a good amount of my childhood playing between Universal Studios and Disneyland. While Disney is still king of little kiddie amusements, I really loved Universal Studios! I came back here a few years ago and my favorite is the backlot

this place is great, they have so much to do inside, but i wouldn't expect any super scarey rides, more adventure like, but still a great time!! the food of coarse is over priced, but what theme park's aren't? admission isn't too bad

If you are ever looking for something fun and exciting to do in LA... go to Universal Studios Hollywood! In all my years of visiting Universal each time gets better and better. My kids are 10 and 15 and they always have a blast riding

This place gets better with each passing year. I live a few miles away and it's a great place to walk around, take in the valley view, go on a few rides, and of course see the back lot of the most popular old Hollywood studio. The only downside ... the price.
Be prepared to spend a couple hundred for a family of 4.

Me and my girlfriend love coming here. They have rides and attractions for both children and adults. Definitely gotta love the new simpsons ride. Everything their is so much fun. I would definitely recomend everyone going. They have this animal show that I thought was amazing. Also a special effects show, who doesnt want to learn about special effects in movies. Love going, that is why we have our annual passes for universal studios whoo hoo :)

This place doesn't have the magic of Disneyland, and doesn't have the great rides of Six Flags. Not that it's all bad, there are some decent rides, and it covers the bases of any normal theme park, but it's a distant third to Disneyland

The rides are not that good and there is not really anything to do really. I went with a group of friends and i had more fun eating at Panda Express and that was expensive if you didn't have the all you can eat and even then you have to go through the haslte of going to the end of the line to get more food. But i can say it is a great start for family days and it is affordable until you get passes the gates.

If you're going to Universal Studios expecting rides, you'll be disappointed. The roller coaster is weak. And the water ride is fun in a way but ultimately a let down. Throughout the park there are "rides" that really are just fancy

Universal has some arrangement with Southern California Gray Lines, a shuttle service to/from Anaheim hotels, but the info on Universal's website is not correct. Off-season departure from the park is between 6 and 6:30 pm -- NOT at 5pm

I have never had a plesant experience at Universal Studios. The lines are way too long, and the number of rides is limited! You will spend most of your day in a line, and about 20 minutes TOTAL in the attractions (if they're not broken!)

I really enjoyed visiting Universal Studios.

Loved the Backdraft experience and the studio tour.

If you get time go to Citywalk at night, there are some great bands playing in BB Kings.

Compared to Disneyland, Universal Studios is more fun for adults. T2, Waterworld and Back to the Future are fun. I also give Universal credit with launching Citywalk long before Disney built Downtown Disney. Universal's location is cool,
