Universal Studios Reviews

I visited this one-of-a-kind theme park with my cousins and it was the best memory I have with them till date. After clicking the clich├ęd picture in front of the classic Universal Studios globe-like structure, we went on to spend the day visiting the rides and shows in the themed zones. My younger self was especially fascinated meeting characters from Shrek, the yellow lovable minions from Despicable Me and even Marilyn Monroe. We spent most of the day going on rides, including but not limited to rollercoasters, river-raft rides and ferris wheels. Watch out for exciting live street performances by your favourite characters!

Universal Studios is indeed a delight to visit. The adventure-packed themed park is filled to the brim with tourists throughout the year. The park offers many attractions and has themed restaurants and cafes to lounge in as well. I would recommend buying the entry tickets online. This does not make the itinerary very flexible but helps avoid long queues. Another advantage of buying the tickets online is that several websites offer discounts and help you get the best deals for the studio. Avoid visiting during national holidays as the crowd only increases.
