    Beware of weekends summer of survival at universal studios. Lines are insanely long! Best thing though are the air misters throughout the park. Big +!!!! Suggestion...go during non-summer days

    Though the very long line, it doesn't take too long to wait. The tour is quite exciting and mind-blowing sometimes. It takes about more than 40 mins to finish the tour. Love it. Worth waiting for.

    If you can, go for the back side of tram 4 or 5 and sit on the left. Many more explosions, plus there's some psychotic mama's boy that always comes out on the right

    The best attraction in Universal. It is the first things to do there. It be come crowded after 10am, so do it before 10 or after 3pm to avoid queuing.

    If you want a loner's opinion, it's to take the night tour before you take the day one. But take both. And lastly, try to sit on the left side of the bus. You will see more.

    If you don't want to get your feet wet then be sure to lift your legs up when you are crossing the bridge by the lake where George is swimming in.

    Wow the Fast&Furios ride in the tour finale is the very best! Worths all the wait in the line which takes up to 2hrs.

    It IS bumpy. And dry. And sunny. And hot. ...bring water or a beer with you, and don't forget your sunglasses! You may get a water droplet on you, too.

    So this is where ALL the movies are made... Off the charts! 5+ stars! It was bigger than i expected. But very cool to see none the least. Highly recommend going.

    First take Transformers and do al at the lower floor. Then take your food in hand and take the line at Studio Tour. Eat in the line.

    I always find the parting of the Red Sea to be the most immersive experience. Doesn't matter which car... ;)
  • Robert B.
    Robert BowlingJanuary 31, 2010
    The mid-to-rear trams are the best to enjoy the tour. I also recommend sitting on the far-left side of the tram to get the most out of the Earthquake stage.

    King Kong 3D, subway earthquake, Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift & Mummy cave are fun. The rest of the tour is especially interesting for movie fans.

    Long wait for the studio tour, but you do get three "rides" out of it. The Fast and Furious experience is chaotic, but worst of all, cheesy.

    Don't sit at the comer seats, the visible boundaries of King Kong 360 will spoil the immersion/fun.
