Places To Take The Kids For Spring Break (series)... Universal Studios

A Spring "Break" that Lasts

There's so much to share, I don't really know where to begin...
The Entertainment Capital of L.A.,Universal Studios gives you a rare glimpse into the world of movie making. Taking a Tram Studio Tour through one of the world's largest working movie and studio lot makes Universal Studios a one of a kind experience. *Trams go Hi Def in June, 2009 with new flat-screen HD monitors installed in each Tram car.

Finally, a place that caters to the tween/teen crowd and adults will enjoy it just as much or more! A perfect example of this is the walk through attractions House of Horrors. This Mom considers this a "wet your pants" kind of scary. The Revenge of the Mummy Ride is for the hard-core thrill seekers (and it goes backwards) Awesome! Being that I lost my hat on that ride, (bummer) I highly recommend you use the lockers provided for everything, even glasses!
Honorable Mention: Hubby's park favorite is Terminator 2: 3D.

There's also family fun with the Curious George water play area, perfect for a hot day, adults are encouraged to get wet too. You will also see newly escaped animals of Madagascar roaming about...

Hey, is that a Sponge with Square Pants????

The list of characters making appearances is long...

Shrek, Donkey & Princess Fiona


Curious George

All of The Simpsons

Shaggy & Scooby Doo

Dora The Explorer & Diego

Alex the Lion and the Penguins from 'Madagascar'

and more....

Shrek 4-D was a fun flick you won't want to miss...
also a great place to cool off on a hot day.


This ride is a "fly off your seat" adventure in true Simpsons style.

Next Stop: Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park-The Ride was the family favorite. We have introduced all 3 movies on DVD to our son recently so it was right up our alley. But I will say, this ride is so well done you will enjoy it even if you are not familiar with the movies.

*Insider info-
Buy a souvenir bucket of popcorn $4.99 & get unlimited free refills!
Buy a souvenir lidded cup w/ straw $7.99 & get unlimited refills for .69 cents.
Another deal worth looking into, the all you can eat
Meal Pass.

If you're planning on visiting the park during the busy season or on a hot day, do yourself a huge favor and purchase the Front of the Line Pass Entry Ticket. Does it cost extra? Sure. Is it worth it? OMG, Every Penny!

Universal CityWalk, located just outside the gates of Universal Studios features 65 entertainment-themed restaurants, nightclubs, and shops (admission is free).

*Parent Tips-
Visiting the park with a small child? Take advantage of the child switch program available at several rides. Built in (very nice) changing tables are available in every bathroom.
