Universal Studios Los Angeles
If you haven’t visited a Universal Studios anywhere in the world you’re really missing out. For children it’s a real treat to meet the many many characters that they so adore on screen! @universalstudioshollywood was high on our bucket list on our recent trip to the west coats of USA and we can safely say it did not disappoint. The park is now divided into two major parts the Upper Lot and the Lower Lot. The Upper Lot features Despicable Me Minion Mayhem the motion simulator ride that takes you into the world of minions like no other! It also has its own themed area that contains a large outdoor dry and wet play area for children called Super Silly Fun Land which is perfect for those little ones! Besides this the Simpsons section was a delight with all their character meet and greets along with the infamous gift shop aptly named The Kwik-E-Mart! And as we mentioned in our previous post The Wizarding Word Of Harry Potter is also part of the Upper Lot.
For the adults and older kids we must mention The Studio Tour, a 45 to 60 minute ride which uses tram vehicles to take the visitors to the actual filming of many shows and movies. This is a signature ride exclusive only to Universal Studios Hollywood and takes us to the REAL sets of iconic movies like Jaws, King Kong, Fast And Furious, War of the Worlds and more! Epic!
Fast forward down to the Lower Lot which consists of three rides that you may have heard of. The Jurassic Park Ride, Revenge Of The Mummy (an absolute fav) and the Transformers Ride!
If you’re a movie buff (or even if you’re not) a trip to Universal Studios is a must and should be planned sooner than later!
