Buy a day get a year free. Go once then you can go over and over again. The tour is really cool and maybe the best part of the park. The 3D King Kong section need multiple viewings. A great day for everyone.

Universal Studio is a must when n LA, but it takes a whole day and you get exhausted.Definately buy a 'Front of the Line Pass' so you ship te hour long queues and take Preferred parking. Exensive sure but if you aready have decided to go to universal it is just a little extra and the event will be totally different. The shows are great. Eat outside in the city walk, ex Wolfgang Pucks place

A great peek in the tricks of Hollywood – The Studio Tour is probably the only thing about Universal Studios that IS good. It takes only like 40 minutes, but you get some good peaks at the studios backlot, including the houses used over and over for various movies and tv shows. They'll even explain how some special effects are put together and show you some landmarks of the industry (like Hitchcock's office). I've been on the tour probably half a dozen times but never seen a movie shoot in action. Better chances on the streets of LA, it seems. But if you do go to Universal Studios, at least redeem the admission costs by taking the Studio Tour. Otherwise you might find you've wasted a lot of cash on a nearly worthless amusement park.

A movie lover's must – If you are a movie lover, the Studio Tour at Universal is a must. No...you don't REALLY see how the movies are made...but it does give you a little insight into the "studio" life. If you have a tour guide who likes their job, you will laugh, groan, and probably shriek as you tram through parts of the back lot. The last time I did this tour, the old Parting Red Sea/Jaws portion of the tour was "under construction". I'm not sure what it is now, but we're considering going back this year just to see what they've put in it's place. More often than not I'm spending time at the City Walk...but that's a whole other review.

Climb aboard for a guided trip through Hollywood history--but beware of sharks, tremors and giant apes. – The Background
Since beginning in 1964, Universal Studios' backlot tour has offered star-struck visitors a close-up look at sets and secrets from the earliest days of cinema to the latest blockbusters and hit TV series.

The Experience

Once a multi-hour odyssey, the tram ride has been whittled down to about 45 minutes, but it still includes famous landmarks like the Hill Valley courthouse where Marty McFly went "Back to the Future," Beaver Cleaver's suburban home and the spooky Bates Motel and "Psycho" house. Sure, you'll see dusty, vintage sets like New York Street and Little Europe, but the real highlights are Earthquake, a state-of-the-art re-creation realistic enough to even scare Angelenos, King Kong, a face-to-face encounter with the classic movie monkey and the Mummy's Tomb, inspired by the 1999 flick. Even the dated, dorky shark "Bruce" from "Jaws" still startles. New highlight is the set from Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds."

Take the tour – Tour fo Universal Studios is great and informative. As far as the park goes, i'm not a huge fan. Not a lot of shade and long lines. Go when not crowded. The tour is definately great for kids.

This GA Girl Loved Universal Studios – My sweartheart and I loved Universal Studios Hollywood. It is amazing how much studio magic goes on behind the camera. The fire effects, the sounds, the set, all incredible. The crew really does a lot to get the crowd involved. Our tour guide was a little comedian. My favorite was the little town sets, and the water scenes that rush out at the bus. A word of caution, be prepared to get wet on the bus. The lines moved fairly quickly so such large groups of people. The scenary is breathtaking. It quickly remind you that you are in California. You can see all the houses on the slopes of the mountains. We can never look at a movie or music video the same. After all, "it's all special effects the begin in where else...a studio."

weak – A big waste of money. Tickets are way overpriced and the lines were long and the rides cheesy.

Great place to ang out with the family..

Fun, exciting, lots to do hear. Lots of places to eat.

It kind of expensive, but if your looking to see how movies are made and what has been made on thier lot, it fun to see it all. Food and drinks are expensive, I would suggest packing a lunch. Drink you can buy there, only because it will be hot and the drinks will have ice to cool you off.
