Last month, our family visited Universal Studios Hollywood and we really had such a fantastic time. The kids had never been; they’d only longingly admired the park from afar, in commercials. With Spring Breaks ahead and the weather warming up, it’s a prime time to make plans to head north and play.
The biggest tip I can share with you is the Front of Line Pass that rocks! Seriously. The star-treatment passes are approximately $130 each (includes one-day park admission); you’ll have nearly no waits for any ride.
Our favorite ride was The Simpsons™ a revolutionary virtual roller coaster that was a riot. There’s also Revenge of the Mummy–The Ride, which is an actual indoor roller coaster. Plus, there’s Shrek 4-D™, the King Kong 360 3-D experience and much more. Some photos from our day below to put you in the mood.
Even my husband and I felt a bit like kids as we experienced the park with our kids. The last time he and I had visited was when we were in our early 20′s and just dating. So it was wild to be there, two decades later with three kiddos.
The kids got a big kick out of the legendary Studio Tour that offers an upclose look at how Hollywood movies are made. They also loved the Special Effects Stage that shows you the secrets behind the blockbuster movies.
After the day of fun, we wrapped the outing under the lights of Universal City Walk with a bite at Hard Rock Café.
I really can’t say enough about what a fun excursion the park was. Info below if you’re considering tickets or interested in more information. By the way, you can enjoy Universal Studios Hollywood all year long with their “Buy a Day and Get 2013 FREE” offering.
