Not really worth it at all. Universal Studio had gone dirt cheap on this offer. Imagine paying over USD $300 per individual on this, not much of VIP experience at all. No gift packs but a dirt cheap poncho for the Jurassic Park Ride...All the other exclusive studio visitations...don't even want to go into it at all...only happy with the tour guide Sami...others are merely a rip-off....Viator, please do not recommend this on your advertising page....this offer is really, really an outmost ripped-off to all individuals....
It's universal studios. What's not to like!
We were unsure about spending so much on the Universal trip, but decided in the end to do the VIP tour. We then kept saying, during the day, "We are so glad we did this. It is worth every penny". Apart from going through security, no queues all day. Welcomed at a lounge where breakfast of salmon and cream cheese bagels and other rolls, yoghurt, fruit, juice and coffee were waiting. Sat on comfortable sofas, awaiting being collected by our guide for the day, Bobby. Then taken on all the rides, entering by special entrances to avoid queue - be warned, there is no ride where you do not get sprayed with water and for Jurassic Park, you definitely need the plastic poncho they provide. Fabulous buffet lunch, in private dining room. Then, in the afternoon, taken down to the back lot and allowed to walk around the square they used in Ghostwhisperer and Back to the Future, taking photos; taken inside the sound stage they were using for a current series - Parenthood; toured the props warehouse (that was amazing). Our guide, Bobby, kept us entertained with lots of info and gossip and was great. Could not recommend highly enough. A big outlay, but well worth it.
This tour is absolutely amazing!!! The experience allows you to feel like a total VIP. My tour guide was very friendly, funny, and knows all about the movie industry!!! I would really recommend this package for any going to Universal. Lunch is provided - it is a very delicious gourmet buffet with Valet parking as well - which is awesome so that you don't have to go and search for your car at the end of the day, they will bring it right to you! My family and I will definitely go next year! I can't wait for the Harry Potter and Minion Rides to open!!!
We saw everything that we wanted to at universal Studios because we had front if line passes. We went on a very crowded Sunday and the queues were LONG but we just bypassed everyone and went through Gate A. Highly recommended.
Universal Studios is so overrated! Paid double the price of normal entry for this pass, only to find out you can only use it once per ride. However I didn't know this so did use it multiple times without realising and got pulled up on my third go on one of the rides. If it was strictly once per ride I would've been furious. Maybe it made a difference because we didn't go on the rides multiple times consecutively.
Anyway there only like 8 rides. Nearly all are simulated. The best was Simpsons and Transformers, both simulated. When we left the park (about 5 hours before closing) transformers had a 3 hour wait time.
Too many people let in the park for it's size. Which left long queues for food and nowhere to eat once you actually got the food as all seats were taken.
Definitely not to be missed if you are coming to LA. My wife and I spent the whole day at Universal Studios and found more than enough to keep ourselves totally occupied...and highly entertained. How did the Front of LIne Pass perform? In a word, 'fantastic'! We saved so much time without ever being stuck in lengthy queues, and those who did not have the Front of Line Pass were to be pitied. We moved quickly between rides and attractions as those without the 'special' pass seemed to remain in queues forever. We must have saved at least a couple of hours over the course of the whole day. Do it!!
Loved every minute of Universal Studios, wrong side of 60 but did it all and had a great time. Front of line pass the only way to go.
Universal Studios was great. Tour is a must and although we had to wait it includes some great moments that were fun for the whole family and create great memories. Don't miss it.
Having a Front of Line Pass is absolutely great when you only have one day to do Universal Studios. Never a discussion if we anted to wait to try the next attraction or ride. For almost all the rides there was VERY long lines so jumping these was just great. (Careful with the Jurassic Park ride - You can get VERY wet ;-) )
Nice to see the Universal Studios. When there with the kids and they liked it very much.
It would have been nice if we could buy the skip the line pass without having to buy the pass to Universal. It would have been nice for Universal in California to introduce the same pass as in Florida that allows multiple entries into attractions. For this pass to allow only one entry per attraction and given how few attractions there are, it is not worth the price.
Other than the studio tour Universal Hollywood really has little to offer. No actual roller coasters , just a few rides. the only two shows worth seeing fill up very fast. . The employees were not very accurate in their information. Which made using a wheel chair really unpleasant. They also don't seem to have a park capacity cut off.It was uncontrollably crowded. if you go to this park Do Not expect the greatness that is Universal Orlando. It was very much a let down,
Had a great day out at Universal Studios and the "Front of line passes " were well it.We could go to the short queue and were given best seats in the house for each show.
This is my second visit to Universal Studios and I can honestly say it gets better every time. The back lot tour always amazes me and for anyone visiting Los Angles it is a must to visit here
