Universal Studios Hollywood Universal Studios Hollywood

Universal Studios has been entertaining guests since it opened in 1915, but everything changed in 1964 when Universal started offering a brand new studio tram tour. Universal Studios Hollywood became a working movie studio as well as a theme park. Universal Studios is unique in that it is built on the side of a mountain in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, which limits the amount of space available for the theme park portion of the studio. However, Universal has never let the space limitations hold them back and instead they have built an incredible theme park on their Upper Lot and Lower Lot. The Studio Tour tram even exists to this day and is celebrating its 50th Anniversary!
