If your going to sit on the very right of the tram tour, expect to get wet...lol! I did when we watched the Jaws set and tried to protect my camera.
As you travel along there are many suprises. One of those other surprises is when we entered a set area that looks like Jurasic Park and because my attention was off guard, I was the victim of the dinosaurs that jumps out and squirts you. My family laughed so hard and I tried to spin around a catch this picture. Not the best picture, but the event made my family laugh hard.
From LAX, Take the 105 Freeway East to the 110 Harbor Freeway North. Exit on the 101 Hollywood Freeway North to the Universal Studios Blvd. Exit then turn right on to Universal Studios Blvd. and follow the signs to our parking areas.

Before we arrived in LA it was our intention to visit Universal Studios AND Disneyland. We thought it would be quite simple to get from one park to the other, but it isn't!
In the end we booked a day trip to Disneyland, through the hotel tour desk. We were picked up from the hotel quite early, but were taken in to the city and had to transfer to another bus at the offices of the tour company. We finally got to Disney at midday, and so only had 10 hours to do both Disney parks. We returned to our hotel at Universal City at midnight.
This cost us 100 dollars each.
This is an attraction in the theme park (obviously!) and is located on the left just as you enter the park. I have put it in the "Warnings and Dangers catagory for various reasons. Firstly, I don't think it is situated in a very good location, considering the type of attraction it is. Due to it's lack of popularity, park staff stand outside and try to persuade you to go in as soon as you arrive at Universal Studios. Once in there, you walk around dark passage ways and various actors dressed as vampires, monsters etc jump out at you and try to scare you to death. Don't go in if you are of a nervous disposition. The central area is themed well, but the rest is a bit to dark to see, and you feel to nervous to notice anyway!
This is the main entrance to the Studios. When visiting Universal Studios theme park and driving up on the hill, you'll see these huge gates. We drove all the way up to the gates and it was closed.
These gates are only open for employees of the studios, including the movie stars, directors and other staff. Alwas watch the road signs that tells you which direction the parking is. You have to use the visitor parkings.

The warning would be, don't get too excited seeing the merchandizes on display hehe. Hold your temptation but do buy something as a souvenier like a t shirt where you can show off to your friends that you've been there and back hehe. Here's me with the famous De Lorean car :)
Some of the attractions have warning signs in front of them. If you have any of the medical conditions they indicate. Think before entering.
