CityWalk is really...something. You don't have to pay to see CityWalk, so it's nice if you just want to check it out without dropping serious cash (other than parking). It's so bright and shiny and loud! I will say, even though the movie theater is a bit expensive (it is LA), they did have a nice discount during the summer months.

Saw some celebrities (check the website to see who you could see on the day of your arrival, and what shows or events are happening there), and got to experience nearly every ride/attraction in one single day. Longest wait time was the Simpsons ride at around 30 minutes. (went in early April)

If we're comparing other theme parks like Six Flags and Disneyland to this one then this one isn't as exciting. It doesn't compare in terms of rides, but I think Universal has a pretty cool thing going on when it turns into a scary park around Halloween time.

Universal Studios Hollywood is more about the experience then the rides. Make sure to take the Studio Lot Tram Tour, they will take you around a lot of historic movie sets. Universal is really fun when they do the scary park theme in October, you can actually walk around some of the famous sets like the psycho motel during that month. Not an especially big theme park, if there are moderate lines you spend a good 5 hours here. The food is stereotypically overpriced park food, eat at Citywalk. Parking can be a hassle, if you are staying in Hollywood or downtown I would recommend taking the metro.

Both city walk and the park are definitely a sight to see. I went when I was 18 and it was still interesting to me. There was enough things that were a throw back for me to be interested. If you're going in thinking you're gonna ride rides all day, your wrong. There is rides, but they aren't intense like roller coasters or anything. It's more about the experience.

I've been at Disneyland Paris & Studios and Port Aventura, which has the highest roller coaster in Europe, and I can tell you that the experience you have here is completely different. At Universal Studios, it's not about the rides, it's about what you are used to see in tv coming reality even just for one day. It's about seeing the airplane from Lost, the lake from Jaws and the sky from The Truman Show. It is amazing, I assure you. And one more thing: the Transformers Ride is the coolest one I've ever been.

I went here a few years ago, and unless it's changed it was just okay. Universal Studios Orlando is where it's at! The one in Hollywood is really tiny, and doesn't have anywhere near as many rides as the Orlando one. The best ride though is the movie ride, you take it as a backlot tour and you can see all these cool props from movies. That was actually super fun. But, the thrill rides weren't that thrilling, in my opinion.
