We went to Universal Studios mainly because of all the superhero memorabilia. We did not get our money's worth. When you go to Disneyland, you have tons of rides to go on, a bunch of interactive activities, and there's something for everyone.
1. The first let down for Universal was that it cost the same or a little more than Disneyland.
2. Where other amusement parks have hundreds of rides, Universal has less than 20, and half of those were tours in a cart, which were uninformative and boring. Not even really rides.
3. There is one show to see. I don't even really see shows, but the selection alone was horrible.
4. When you go to most amusement parks, it's impossible to fit everything you want to do there, into one day. This isn't the case with Universal Studios. After seeing everything there was to see, we were bored and ready to leave after 5 hours.
The only highlight were the shops on the way out of the park, and the 3D show Terminator 2:3D.
In short, there's hardly anything to do, you're severely overcharged, there's absolutely nothing for kids, and not much more for adults. Unless you are absolutely obsessed with the film studio, Universal Studios, this will be a severe letdown!
