Is Ollivander's that room with the magic wands? We went in that the last time were there. That's some shrewd marketing! They picked one kid out of the room and gave her a wand which, of course, made all the other kids in the room green with envy. There was a like a 5-minute show where the wand "made stuff happen" — just long enough to send envy levels of the wand-less through the (beautifully themed) roof. Then the show dumps you straight out into a wand shop. If you're a parent, use caution with this attraction or it could get very expensive!

We are visiting the park in September of this year (Along with Disneyland, and Knotts Berry Farm) for my 40th Birthday party!!!

It will be my first time at the park ever!!!!

However I am worried that the tram will not be running(?) during this time because of the HHN event. Is this true? I would be really bummed if it wasn't running.

We are visiting on Thursday the 28th of September.

Hey,

I'm thinking about going to Universal Hollywood while I'm in CA over the summer. How much time should I set aside for the park to experience everything?

You'll need a whole day if you want to experience everything. There aren't that many attractions, but they're really all worth doing. The tram is the very best; you'll want to set aside a couple of hours for it. The ride itself is 45 minutes, plus whatever amount of time you spend queueing for it. Well worth it in every way. Don't skip the tram.

Of course, if you do the tour as soon as the park opens, you won't end up waiting long for it.
You can also save plenty of time using single rider lines on rides that have it.

Hi all,

I'm thinking about heading to Universal Hollywood this summer, and only spending a day there. Would a Fast Pass be worth it, and what should I hit up?

The tram continues to run as usual during the daytime hours. You should be fine. The only thing to be aware of is that it does sometimes close about an hour before the park does, as the tour itself takes about an hour.

The tram will typically close 1hr and 45 minutes before the park closing time.
