Universal Studios Hollywood

One of the world’s oldest continuously operating movie studios, Universal Studios Hollywood presents an entertaining mix of thrill rides, live action shows, and a tram ride. It’s also one of the largest theme parks, and it cleverly integrates the shows and rides with behind-the-scenes presentations on movie-making.

First-timers should head straight for the tram, which takes you around the soundstages in the front lot, then heads to the back lot past the crash site from War of the Worlds, 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 best thrill ride is Jurassic Park, a gentle float through a prehistoric jungle. Revenge of the Mummy is a satisfying indoor roller coaster romp through “Imhotep’s Tomb.” Fans of the Simpsons should not miss the Simpsons Ride, where you’ll join Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie as they soar high above the fictional "Krustyland" theme park in a "virtual roller coaster.”

Practical Info

Universal Studios is located in Universal City, west of Griffith Park. To get there, take the Hollywood Freeway and get off at either the Universal Center Drive or Lankershim Boulevard exits.

Snack food and drinks, including beer and margaritas, are available throughout the park. The best choices, though, are at the adjacent Universal CityWalk, a commercial fantasy promenade of restaurants, shops, bars, and entertainment venues.
