There are a lot of great theme parks in California, and one of the best things about living here is that you get to enjoy them whenever you want. If you haven’t taken the kids to Universal Studios Hollywood, then you are missing out on one of the best attractions in the country, plus lots of great family memories in the making.
Universal Studios Hollywood is the only place that will give you and the family the experience of riding the movies. Try Transformers; The Ride-3D, where you get a fully immersive ride that fuses 3D media and a flight simulator. It is like fighting right along with Optimus to protect the human race. Or try the Simpsons Ride, as a great roller coaster takes you through Springfield along with all your favorite Simpsons characters. Of course there are so many more rides to choose from, like Shrek-4D, Revenge of the Mummy, Jurassic Park, The Adventures of Curious George,WaterWorld and more.
Once you’ve all had your fill or rides, check out the Special Effects Stage to get an inside look at all the tricks behind that movie magic. Then visit the Universal’s Animal Actors so you can meet some of the cute animals that you’ve seen on screen. Or visit the NBC Universal Experience for a tour and exhibit that features all sorts of props and wardrobe from your favorite movies and television shows.
Of course, a memorable trip like this deserves a truly luxurious car. Arrive in style in the E350 Sport Wagon from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll have all the room you need for the whole family, plus all the souvenirs you are sure to pick up while you are there. Plus you’ll be able to relax in comfort for the drive home after that long and eventful day.
