    Short Lines?

    I wish these were more accurate… went last night based on this site, “yup, packed…” “Best Bet” day. It was so bad, I left after 1.5 hours there (toughed it out and managed one ride). Week night, late, but crowd unbelievable. And people don’t leave. (They were packed in Hogsmead area at 6:pm…waiting for new light show that doesn’t start until 9:pm!)
    Just rammed. Never called it in a park before. But, $100 some ticket, $25 parking, for 1 hour then exit….wow.

    Just checked again, based on report. Line going in, and one big line going out. Turned and left.

    Crowds aren’t too bad at Universal Studios, but the lines can get very long in the summer, over 1 hour for everything. Get Front of Line on these days!

    Buy Front of Line if you’re going on a crowded day. So worth it!

    Universal Studios is way too crowded in the summer, especially Harry Potter World. Go during the week.

    Great park, but too crowded in the summer. Front of Line is worth it, otherwise you will be waiting in lines for hours.
