Definitely get the skip the line pass and pay the extra $20 for parking (so worth it)! It only took one day to do everything we wanted but it was a lot of fun and would recommend going to anyone. If you do not do the studio tour you are making a big mistake!! Teens loved the Harry Potter area. U would say the only negative was finding seating for lunch. We had to wait a looong time at the taco stand for our food and then search around for seating.

Went to the lower rides( Curse of the mummy, Transformers and Jurassic Park) and was done all 3 before many of the people in the regular line in the first ride had even gotten on to do one! Best deal for the money any day!

Very beneficial as we managed to go on every ride, some we were able to just walk on. The longest wait time whilst at the park for standard que was 55 min, and we waited about 15 min for that ride. Would be better if the express tickets also had their own que to get into the park. Overall a very enjoyable day and would recommend the express tickets

A money rip off at every turn. Nothing but gangsters and urban hip hop losers. If you are a nice clean family from Nebraska, you will stand out like a sore thumb. Read between the lines and you'll get it. If you don't pay out the butt for the Express Line deal, you will never get onto anything. Plus all kinds of weirdos dressed in their favorite character garb. Plus the area of town is TERRIBLE. Stay very close to the park to be safe.

Just like disneyland this place is pricey, but not as bad. Food and drink prices could easily be cut in half and they would still make a ton of profit. There's not very many rides we did them all in one day easily. The express pass is great the line ups for the rides was none to hardly any. We did 3 rides in 15min. The characters 100 times better the Disney, they have a schedule and you see when they will be out, and getting pictures mo problem. Megatron is so funny, who ever is doing his roll does an excellent job and is very entertaining. The tour is good, crowd size is big but not stupid big like disneyland. It all comes down to pricing, the big companies Universal, Disney all make so much money every year why they gouge the public in there parks is hard to understand. Theses parks should be for everybody but there not.
