    Go on the Backlot Tour to see some of the great effects. But take note, some people may get a tad wet.

    You're safe from the fire, it's the water you need to worry about. You can get more soaked than Splash Mountain.

    Not what it used to be :(

    There are four lines you can choose from, if you bring my son, he will always pick the longest line even when it is obviously the longest line

  • Janet G.

    Show up early for a show or ask to stay behind and volunteer to be an actor, it's way fun...and a way to truly make the memories begin!

    If you hop on here expecting the Universal Los Angeles backlot tour, you've come to the wrong place. Boring for adults.

    Emily Ledbetter · December 31, 2010
  • Michelle T.

    Don't waste your time, all it is, is a tour through empty costume making facilities and a few cars and planes sitting around.

    Michelle Tiemann · November 20, 2010

    You can bring drinks and food on tour

    The right-most line at the beginning will get wet in the first sequence. The left-most will stay dry. Middle lines may get wet.

    Skip it. Ever since they put in lights motor action this ride sucks.

  • @Nacron

    Save yourself the time and skip this one. One effect area and the rest of the ride is touring their sparse boneyard

  • Miles B.

    Try to get on right when the lights motor actions show starts u get to see the cars do so cool stuff in a really small space.

    Miles Bresin · July 14, 2011

    45 minute tour. Not worth it. Go somewhere else.

    Sam Kelly · February 17, 2011

    Skip this one and see the stunt show or Muppets instead.

  • Loren L.

    Find out how to volunteer for the Pearl Harbor exhibit at the beginning. It looks like a lot of fun!

    Who here remembers the old version of the tour. The near three hour version when NY Street wasn't open to foot traffic?

    If you're a fan of the World of Motion from Epcot, look around the prop room before you board the tram, you'll see a few props from the classic ride!

    Jeff Jensen · April 18, 2012

    Way better than reviews made it seem, I think its a cool experience. You may get wet, to stay dry avoid the left side

    Luigi DP · February 3, 2012

    Nice ride. When you are walking in the line, you will see few of the items that they used in the movies.

    MoDi ALDossary · August 23, 2014
  • Robert G.

    It's a bit dated and lengthy. However, it's one of the few places to see authentic movie props.

    Robert Goforth · August 18, 2014
  • Tony E.

    That was terrible! I left after the first fake movie water special effects act.
