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.

Universal Studios Hollywood reviews
We went to the Universal Studio before COVID-19, but didn’t have time to write a review. The activities are fun and geared for all the family members. However, sometimes we found lines were over 30... more »
Pretty lame is theme parks go in my opinion, Disneyland kicks butt on this one, And isn't that much more expensive. And that's really the reason for the two stars is that these things are gross... more »
Universal Studios is great fun for the whole family! We loved spending our day here. There are lots of attractions to explore and the rides are great fun. My favourite rides included the Jurassic Park and the Harry Potter rides! They are amazing, so detailed and so much fun! We also really loved the backstage tour that had many fun surprises worked in. I highly recommend visiting Universal Studios Hollywood, for a day or a couple days! You'll have a really fun time!
Great place to visit at least once in lifetime. For kids it is amazing to see all the characters coming alive. Water world was just awesome and some breathtaking stunts. Harry Potter 3D ride is simply cool. Jurassic park ride, Transformers fight, Jaws depiction, the facades etc were simply unbelievable. It's a must for any kid and adults like me who are still kids at heart.
