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
A very thematic place regarding Hollywood movies. A little expensive but it was a good experience. Take a chance on Universal Studios. more »
I highly suggest doing the VIP Experience if it is in the budget. WORTH every penny. Once-In-A-Lifetime event. We had our own personal guide and we got to go behind-the scenes! First you arrive... more »
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.
My husband and I came here on our honeymoon and we had a great time. We got special buttons at the Guest Services kiosk and all the characters and staff made sure to congratulate us and make us feel extra special. We truly enjoyed all the rides we went on and the fact that we were on a live studio where they were shooting some of our favorite shows! Harry Potter World was fantastic. Cannot wait to go back!
