Universal Studios Hollywood is the Number One tourist destination in Los Angeles.  After all, Hollywood is the entertainment mecca!  They have decided to make an investment over 5-years to make the park even better for visitors!  They will be bringing new thrill rides and a whole new meaning to LA’s “Entertainment Capital” title.

The Universal Studios Hollywood transformation started in 2012, with the Transformers:  The Ride-3D, and in 2016 they will be following suit from the Universal Orlando Park and add “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.”    Universal Studios Hollywood has been around for 50 years!  The goal of both Universal Orlando and Universal Hollywood is to fully immerse guests in the movie experiences that have become so popular on the big screen.  The extra fabulous aspect to Universal Studios Hollywood, is that it is truly a working studio lot.    As a visitor to Universal Studios Hollywood, you can even enjoy a Studio Tour-which takes you onto the movie and television studio sets-making you feel like you are part of the action!

Following the Transformers:  The Ride-3D came Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and Super Silly Fun Land.  Both of these are set to open on April 14th, making 2014 the Year of the Minion at both Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood.    The awesome aspect to the Universal Parks is the fully immersive experience.  You feel as if you are in Gru’s neighborhood, at Miss Hattie’s Home for Girls, and walking alongside the seaside carnival.

In 2015, Universal Studios Hollywood will open two attractions to celebrate their 50th anniversary.  The land of Springfield, surrounding the Simpsons Ride will open in Spring of 2015, as well as the Fast And Furious Supercharged!  This will be the “grand finale” of the Studio Tour.    While in “Springfield”, you can enjoy the Krusty Burger, Luigi’s Pizza, and the Phineas Q. Butterfats 5600 Flavor Ice Cream Parlor.

For any movie and TV fan, the Universal Parks are for YOU!  The fully immersive experiences are like none other.  Imagine plummeting into the world of underground car racing from the Fast and the Furious with hyper-realistic and over the top special effects.   And in 2016, Universal Studios Hollywood will FINALLY welcome the Wizarding World of Harry Potter-the uber popular attraction at Universal Orlando.  You can bet that Hogwarts Castle will be a huge park icon in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
