"Amazing Day at Universal with my new Husband"
October 2021
This Universal experience was amazing!!! We lucked out and there were little to no wait times. We were able to ride everything we wanted a time or two. There was no issue at all with the tickets, everything went perfectly! It was a magical day!!! We decided to include this theme park in our honeymoon and it was perfect! Thank you so much Tripster! This is the second time I have used Tripster for our theme park needs and everything is always top notch!!! I will definitely use your site again as it’s user friendly and I know we are getting exactly what we paid for. They also have excellent communication and customer service. As both our trips were during the COVID time and we had questions and had to stay in touch on changes and they are perfect at being helpful and navigating. Very satisfied, again thank you so much for helping relieve some of the stress that can come with travel.

Last but not the least - Studio Tour.
It was a very good experience and as far as I know, it is only present in Los Angeles as this is the only place where they have the sets where the shooting of hollywood movies take place.

Tip: Reach there sharply at 7.30 am if you are planning to complete everything in 1 day and bring lot of energy with you as you will not get much places to sit down when you are in queue.
