Universal Studios Hollywood – Special Holiday Celebration


Here comes the most joyful moment of the year where we can finally slow down, forget (almost) about the last two years of this messy covid crisis, and celebrate with the whole family the holy season. Nothing better but an escapade to Universal Studios Hollywood ( ) setting up its Christmas celebration for the whole month of December. How can one not fall in love with the yearly tradition to meet The Grinch and his dog Max for the special “Grinchmas Who-lebration”.

This is the perfect set up, under the towering Grinchmas tree for a family photo and step into a fantasy world where everything is possible. Talking about fantasy and, just a few feet nearby, make sure to enter the magic Wizarding World of Harry Potter. With its seasonal snowy décor and a breathtaking light projection spectacular, one can only feel the joy within and be transported high in the skies above. This is what Hollywood is all about: creating a dream like reality so we can escape the, sometimes overwhelming, harsh days of existence. Universal Studios Hollywood is the right place to celebrate the positive life and the pursuit of happiness. Make sure to indulge on one or two hot Butterbeer large drink from Harry’s land and before, why not, ride into the backlot tour to make one with the “classics” of Universal pictures. Such as the terrifying shark encounter of Jaws, and enter the 360 degrees 3D world of “King Kong” before riding like a wild renegade with Vin Diesel and his crew of “Fast and Furious”. Universal Studios Hollywood offers endless hours to dwell into a twilight zone of pure fun and escapism.

Talking of escapism, the ultimate two rides one cannot avoid is the re-invented Jurassic World attraction with its giant dinosaur-quarium! And before facing a roaring T-Rex sending you down a never ending fall for an ultimate splash that, for sure, will keep you awake the rest of your day in the park. Finally, why not test your fears and your nerves with the adrenaline rush of The Mummy ride, set in total darkness. This one will send you back and forth at bullet speed to face your own mortality, or almost! Haha!

Ultimately there is not better place on earth but at Universal Studios Hollywood to end the year with a large smile, a full of promises heart and with your whole family on your sides. There is not place like home and this park will truly become your second home when travelling to Hollywood. Fasten your soul belt and enjoy the rides!

A Big Thank you to Anastasia Lee and the whole team of Universal Studios Hollywood. Happy Holidays!
