    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 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 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

    I love going on this tour since they take you back to all the different scenes where the magic happens... But if you do this with the VIP tour... It is awesome🎆🎇🎆🎬🎥🎦

    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.

    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.

    The tour is great. You go through the real places where big movies are shot. The effects are good too. This is a MUST go for everybody.

    Hands down the best thing Universal Studios Hollywood has to offer. A MUST SEE! Should be the first stop you make once you enter the park!

    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.

    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.

    Be prepared to get soaking wet, watch out during the jurrasic park part, the dinosaurs will spit considerable amounts of water on you.

    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.

    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.
  • Brennan Prill Official
    Great place to show your family how movies are made and attractions. I give this place a 10 star ratting!

    If you get Marcellus as tour guide, you're in for a treat. He's been doing this 19 years -- and it shows, he's a great entertainer.

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

    Long waits. Read the other tips while you're waiting in line. Helps pass the time. Reddit helps too.

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

    Sit in the back of car 2 or the front of car 3 for the best spot to enjoy King King 360!

    Its Worth it! King Kong was really impressive. Being a film maker, It's real cool to see all this behind the scenes locations.

    Ask for Kyle, he's by far the best tour guide. King Kong 360 3D is LEGIT!

    I always find the parting of the Red Sea to be the most immersive experience. Doesn't matter which car... ;)

    Want to skip the line? Go on the Spanish tour. During the summer even more different languages are offered.

    Best view for King Kong is the middle seat of the very last row of the last car. Most immersive experience!
  • Maribel E.
    If u want to enjoy the tour ... SIT IN THE MIDDLE CAR or send to the last

    Best part of Universal Hollywood. Get a peek at history and access to two pretty dope 3D rides (King Kong / Fast & Furious)
