You need an entire day for this!

Universal City and Universal Studios are part of L.A. You must visit Universal Studios. Make sure you have the whole day for this purpose and at night, if you're not tired yet, go for a City walk. Universal Studios and Stephen Spielberg's Dream Works Production are represented together at this place.

Don't miss T2-3D!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Tons of fun, Good for the whole family.
  • Cons:Expensive food, Crowded on weekends.
  • In a nutshell:It's a must when going to LA.

    I went to Universal City years ago. Never realized that it's an actual city and that VT lists it as one. Guess I'll just have to update my travel list now!

    Is it a good idea to pay extra for the special "front of the line" ticket. I will be going there in Sept. on a Friday.

    I had fun visiting Universal City. Bigger and better rides since I was there.. I didn't need spare underwear:-) Yes the exchange rate is sure a killer on buying food. The water world show sounds and looks fantastic.

    Wow! Looks like Universal has changed alot since I was last there. Great Page and info. I had the bald head in a commercial for Universal Florida when it was going to open. It was on TV for almost a Year. Me and King Kong. Have a Great Day,Randall.
