Universal Studios Hollywood: Your Family’s Star Turn


If you love movies and TV shows, and have kids that don’t sit still, jump in the car and shoot over to Universal Studios Hollywood for an action-packed family day in LA. Your crew will have such a blast at the scream-inducing rides and jaw-dropping shows you’ll want to come back and do it all over again–which you can, for free, because a day pass provides unlimited visits at no additional cost. There’s so much to do, you won’t know which attraction to tackle first. Simulated 3-D rides like Transformers: The Ride and King Kong 360 will make your hearts pound, as you’re surrounded by the biggest screens you’ve ever seen, holding on with pure thrilled delight. Watch your kids laugh uncontrollably as they bump and bounce their way through the virtual world of The Simpsons. Keep your cameras locked and loaded as they ham it up with characters like Optimus Prime, Shrek, or the Minions from Despicable Me 2. This is a real working movie studio, so keep a watchful eye, as you might see the real-life actors who bring the characters to life. After working up an appetite, channel your inner cavemen as you chow down at the Flintstone’s Bar-B-Q. There are plenty of dining options for Mom and Dad, either inside the park, or outside at the CityWalk, where you’ll also find some of Los Angeles’ best shops. You may not be a movie star, but at Universal Studios, you’ll sure feel like one.
