Fodor's Review

A theme park with classic attractions like roller coasters and thrill rides, Universal Studios also provides a tour of some beloved television and movie sets. A favorite attraction is the tram tour, during which you can experience the parting of the Red Sea; duck from dinosaurs in Jurassic Park; visit Dr. Seuss's Whoville; see the airplane wreckage of War of the Worlds; and get chills looking at the house from Psycho. The tram ride is usually the best place to begin your visit, because the lines become longer as the day goes on.

Most attractions are designed to give you a thrill in one form or another, including the spine-tingling Transformers: The Ride 3-D, or the bone-rattling roller coaster, Revenge of the Mummy. The Simpsons Ride takes you on a hair-raising animated journey through the clan's hometown of Springfield. Don't forget to indulge in magical moments at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and try some Butterbeer in Hogsmeade. Geared more toward adults, CityWalk is a separate venue run by Universal Studios, where you’ll find shops, restaurants, nightclubs, and movie theaters.
