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.

  • I love this theme park, but I especially love Halloween Horror Nights. It’s one of the best Halloween events in the USA. I have traveled all over the nation for Halloween events and it’s always in my favorites. The production value of the haunts are movie set quality. The theme park itself is super fun! They have interesting shows and the best stunt show ever. They have great characters and fun food options. The rides are good. The studio tour is the best attraction and unique to anything you’ll find at other theme parks.
  • The price is pretty steep for what you get at Universal. The experience is great, but there is just not a lot to do at the park. The studio tour is amazing! One of my favorite things. The newer Jurassic World ride is nice. The changes were good and it is an attraction worth experiencing. If you purchase a ticket it is worth getting a partial season one for not much more to be able to come back. Definitely a better value that way.
