I never thought this would happen to me but I actually have a season pass at Universal Studios Hollywood and that is absolutely amazing. I absolutely love that place because it’s like you can be in the movies. The rides are amazingly done, the park is so cool and the Harry Potter section is like a dream coming true.
One of my favorite ride is Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, it feels like you’re flying along with Harry Potter and Ron, the effects are so real, the visuals are stunning and the ride itself is fun and fast. Beautifully done. The Harry Potter section itself is also magical. We can see all the shops from the books/movies that are recreated and you can actually go in and buy merchandise. They even have wands that works in the park and a “Ollivanders” attraction where they pick out one person who gets to try wands and see which one is suited for them. Unfortunately they very often only take children which is a shame because there is so many adults who are obsessed over Harry Potter (including me).
Some other great attractions are the Studio Tour, which is approximately 60 minutes where you get to see some settings of different movies and tv-shows, Transformers: The Ride-3D, Revenge of the Mummy – The Ride and The Simpsons Ride. The also have some fantastic shows like a special effect one, animal show and a water show (must see).
The food is pretty cool as well because they have different food around every corner and the food around the Simpsons area is really nice because it’s things from the tv-show. You can even buy gigantic donuts. They also have butterbeer and things like that.
It’s overall such a cool experience and I truly love that place. As a film nerd it’s so cool to see how they filmed some movies and tv-shows and the overall feeling of the park and the fact that you feel like you’re a part of the different worlds is amazing. If you have the chance, go and visit the park because you won’t regret it.
