Universal Studios is probably one of the best-known theme parks in the world due to it representing the almost countless achievements of Universal Studios as a production company. This park is worth visiting not just for the thrill rides but for the behind the scenes studio tour (the highlight of the park in my opinion). In addition to the thrill rides and studio tour, the park has a fantastic amount of movie/television themed atmosphere, along with highly engaging and informative stage shows and educational performances showing how movie magic happens. The studio is located in Hollywood of course and is an institution in both the city and film history. As stated, the behind the scenes tour is the highlight of the park, so I suggest prioritizing that over all other attractions. On this tour, you will pass through filming studios working on shows currently in production before heading into the sets used in numerous blockbuster hits. Some of the most famous sets of all time are located in this studio, such as the city block seen in numerous films including Bruce Almighty, the crashed plane from Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds, the flooding subway set during an earthquake used in numerous films, famous cowboy and western sets, the town from Jaws, the town from The Good Place, Bate’s Motel, amongst countless others. Along the way, you will get to see numerous special effects in action such as flooding, pyrotechnics, earthquakes and more. This tour also includes 3D immersive rides such as King Kong and Fast and Furious. The second best attraction after this tour would be the studio’s Water World stage show which is honestly amazing. A team of actors with speedboats, jet-skis, high-pressure water cannons and some fantastic pyrotechnics and fake guns put on an incredible action-packed show full of stunts, fight scenes and explosions. The studios created themed world sections of the park such as Harry Potter World, The Simpsons World, Jurrasic Park World etc are also well worth seeing. The amount of detail in Harry Potter and The Simpsons worlds is extremely impressive and if you are a fan of the show/movies then its a must see. Finally, the rides at the park are a lot of fun, particularly in my opinion the Harry Potter 3D rollercoaster and the Mummy. Also worth visiting is the Walking Dead zombie walk, if you are a fan of haunted houses you will enjoy this. Make sure to stay late enough in the day to witness the Harry Potter Hogwarts light show as it is well worth waiting for and a great way to end your day in the park.
