Enough for a great day
Taylor C, 08-01-2023
Visiting Universal Studios Hollywood is probably something that is best done with an Express Pass, and done in one day. The Express Pass is expensive enough to make you hesitate about purchasing it, but with the lines for the rides easily being longer than an hour, it can probably be best to purchase the Express Pass and devoting the entire day to visiting every part of the park. Universal Studios Hollywood can be entirely toured within one day, but likely only with the Express Pass.
Authentic Universal visit

Having never visited a Universal Studios property before, this was a really enjoyable visit.

An absolute must have to purchase the skip the line ticket - we never waited for more than 10 minutes when regular queues were up to 90 minutes.

I personally get travel sick so the simulated rides were horrific but never-the-less it's a definite must visit.

I went during the weekend so it was super busy - I'd probably suggest to go on a weekday for less queues.
Must get Express Pass during peak season

We came during christmas and the place was flooded with people. Each attraction requires a 1.5-2.5hr wait. We bought express pass and got to skip most of the lines. Our kids had a great time on all the rides and we get to go back to our hotel by dinner time.
Another bucket lister…

Great experience at universal!! Personally my favourite was the studio tour. Park was really busy but school holidays so we expected this and the price is what it is!! My only thought was I wish we had done Hollywood before visiting Florida :-/
First Time at Universal Studios Hollywood

While looking to book tickets, I came across a website called "La Jolla Mom" and saw they were offering ticket discount so I gave them a try. I was a bit sceptical at first but was relieved to find out they were legit once we reached the park. We took the pass bundled with Express Ticket and it was well-worth it. The best rides for us were the Studio Tour, Harry Potter, Jurassic World and Waterworld (live stunt show).
