One thing you won’t want to miss is the Universal Studios Hollywood™ Studio Tour – a staple of the park, uniquely makings use of its location and showing you some of the real magic behind the movies.

It’s one of the iconic experiences you can have when you visit LA and Hollywood-goers would be unlucky to miss out. Here are some reasons why:

It’s a great way to get the most out of your time in the park and catch one of the quintessential Hollywood attractions.

See Original Movie Sets

Depending on when you go, the sets may change and update but featured movie sets in the Universal Studios Hollywood™ Studio Tour have included blockbusters like War of the Worlds, Psycho and Jaws.
