Universal Studios Hollywood is a unique theme park because not only does it offer guests fun thrill rides and attractions, it is also a working backlot where countless movies and TV shows have been filmed. A special aspect of Universal Studios Hollywood are the world famous studio tours that allow guests to look at real sets such as the Bates Motel from Psycho, Wisteria Lane from the hit series “Desperate Housewives”, and more. This year, Universal Studios Hollywood is celebrating its 50th anniversary and as a result, they have a lot of brand new things to offer guests!

One of the things that Universal Studios Hollywood has been working on for quite some time is the creation of downtown Springfield from the world famous show, “The Simpsons”. When you visit Springfield you can try a Krusty Burger or even a pink glazed donut with sprinkles from Lard Lad. Looking for a drink instead? Then head over to Moe’s Tavern or the very first Duff Beer Gardens.

Also new to the park is the “Fast & Furious – Supercharged!” ride. When you hop into the Fast & Furious attraction, you will be able to ride along with the stars from the Fast & Furious franchise. You will know what it’s like to get involved in a high speed chase where speeds will exceed 120 miles per hour! This ride will open on June 25th. A final new event to keep an eye out for is the brand new Nighttime Studio Tours that will be offered. Similar to the original daytime tours, the nighttime tours will have a new addition, which includes showing techniques that film crews use to create a daytime effect even after the sun has gone down. Book a room in an affordable family-friendly hotel near Universal Studios Hollywood and don’t miss out on all these great new attractions to celebrate their 50th anniversary!
