Universal Studios Hollywood

3-in-1 fun is to be had by all at this part TV studio, part entertainment complex and part amusement park.

No visit to Los Angeles would be complete without a trip to Universal Studios. This attraction combines a behind the scenes view of a television and film studio, with all the excitement of a modern, high-octane amusement park. This mix is a real recipe for success, making this destination one of the most popular attractions in Los Angeles and with visitors from all over the world.

Universal Studios is also one of the oldest working film studios anywhere in Hollywood. Take a tour and see real film and television programme making, giving visitors a real insight into the industry most associated with LA.

The star attraction here, though, isn’t the big names of Tinseltown. The array of adrenaline-inducing rides on offer rival those of any theme park anywhere in the world. Many of these attractions are inspired by popular television shows and cinematic productions from the Universal Studio itself. Take a bone shaking journey on the Revenge of the Mummy roller coaster, jump out of your skin on the Jurassic Park themed ride, or experience the state-of-the-art in modern cinematic effects in Shrek 4-D.

These rides are designed to thrill with all of Hollywood’s know-how fused into their execution, with incredible pyrotechnics and contemporary technology making each and every one a spectacular experience.

The Studio Tour is a particular highlight of Universal Studios. Board a tram and take a ride through many of Hollywood’s most recognisable settings. On the Studio Tour, you’ll see where some of Hollywood’s most famous films were first conceived, and cross paths with all of the earthquakes, floods, fires and special effects that your nerves can handle!

Coming face to face with a monster of the deep, Stephen Spielberg’s ‘Jaws’, is still a firm favourite with visitors. But you can experience an encounter with an even bigger beast, on the King Kong 360 3-D attraction. This truly spectacular and immersive ride was created by Academy Award winning director of the series, Peter Jackson. Try not to flinch as you find yourself pitched into the middle of a battle between the giant ape and a pack of hungry dinosaurs!

You can find Universal Studios 10 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

"Everything was great except there was only 1 medium sized mirror in the bathroom. There were no other mirrors in the room which made it a little difficult to get ready if anyone else was in the room with you. The elevators to the rooms and the garage need some maintenance as well. They are very slow ..."
