Universal Studios Hollywood Tours

Universal Studios Hollywood
One of the world's oldest continuously operating movie studios, Universal® Studios Hollywood presents an entertaining mix of thrill rides and live action shows, plus a tram ride. The large California theme park cleverly integrates the shows and rides with behind-the-scenes presentations on movie-making.

The Basics
First-timers should head straight for the tram tour, which takes visitors around the sound stages in the front lot, then heads to the backlot past the crash site from War of the Worlds, the vehicles from Jurassic Park, and the spooky Bates Motel from Psycho. Also prepare to face down King Kong, brave a flash flood, and survive a shark attack, a spitting dinosaur, and an 8.3-magnitude earthquake. The Studio Tour includes live commentary from one of the park's tour guides.


Things to Know Before You Go
  • Some tours include a combination of tickets to Universal Studios and Anaheim theme parks or transportation from downtown LA.
  • Snack food and drinks, including beer and margaritas, are available throughout the park. The best choices, however, can be found at the adjacent Universal CityWalk, a promenade of restaurants, shops, bars, and entertainment venues.

How to Get to Universal Studios
Universal Studios is located in Universal City, west of Griffith Park, near Los Angeles. To get there, take the Hollywood Freeway and get off at either the Universal Center Drive exit or Lankershim Boulevard exit.

When to Get There
Universal Studios Hollywood is open year-round with varying opening hours. As with most popular attractions, you'll beat the crowds and get the most out of your ticket by arriving when the gates open.

Universal Studios Hollywood Options and Upgrades
Sign up for the VIP Experience to get behind the scenes and see the Universal Studios backlot. Stops on the tour are dictated by television show production schedules, but you'll be able to see what goes on at a working movie studio.
Address: 1000 Universal Center Drive, Universal City, CA 91608, USA
Admission: Varies

the sun was out
Pamela_A
, Feb 2020
We went early on Friday, Feb 20th. The first ride we waited for over 70 minutes. We were told we could not do the studio tour with our ticket, which would have been a viable alternative. My son injured his back a few days before so we ended up not doing the one other ride that was open, since it warned about not doing if you had back problems. One of the other main rides was not operating.

Studio tour was really cool
Eilidh W
, Nov 2019
We have been lucky enough to also go to Orlando Universal a few times and so can't help but compare the two. The park is fun, well located and the studio tour was the best part. Getting to see so many things being currently filmed was very cool but the number of rides still need to increase to bring the theme park nearer to Orlando standard.

Fab day out

, Oct 2019
Great day out, we didn't go on any rides as there not our thing but the shows there were brilliant. Was upset they start putting part of Jurassic park away before the park closes so we didn't see everything in one day. You need two day if you want to do all the rides as well as, overall a brilliant day out for all the family.
