The name is a misnomer. While Universal Studios Hollywood is indeed a film studio, remodelled as a massive attraction, it offers far more than studio tours, which are a blast! Movies are still made on sound stages like this, but Universal Studios, expensive but worth it, is a major entertainment complex and theme park.
The cinema section boasts 19 movie theatres, with deals on parking, and nearby shopping in 30 stores, and 30-plus restaurants of varying descriptions. Located in the San Fernando Valley, it’s easy to access.
Universal Studios Hollywood has a litany of attractions to lure visitors. Check our their Waterworld aquarium, wide selection of fairground rides and amusements, television and film characters wandering about, and themed sections such as Jurassic Park, and Hogsmeade featuring Harry Potter and company.
Our tip: go early and preferably on a weekday. Universal Studios Hollywood is a crazy-busy place. It’s fun for kids and adults, too.
