    Universal Studios, Los Angeles

    May 10, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We woke up super early again around 7am, I was exhausted but got a better nights sleep. When I woke up I got ready and had cereal and fruit for breakfast. We left around 7.30am and drove to Universal Studios, when we got there Dad, Mum and Travis and I got a photo in the photo booth we did it but our photo was really funny.

    We then walked through the Universal shops to the Universal Studios park entrance, we walked through the gates and went into the centres to wait for the park to open. We looked at all the times of the rides and were really confused as they all said 10am and it was only 9am. At 9am the man walked us down to the Harry Potter Wizarding World and we went on the Harry Potter ride it was like being on a flying broomstick. There was a massive dragon and he blew out enormous flames which were actually hot. Then we saw the dementors which were spooky, Harry Potter then saved the day.

    After the Harry Potter ride we went on a Hippogriff ride, it was nice and calm which I was very surprised about as it looked like a scary rollercoaster. We rode inside a Hippogriff.

    After the Hippogriff ride we went back on the Harry Potter ride and it made me feel a little bit sick the second time. Then we looked around the Harry Potter world.

    We then decided to go on the studio tour as it was quiet. The studio tour showed showed you where they filmed everything and the first thing we went too was a new town they were getting ready for a new show. We saw lots of cars from famous movies that Universal have made, like Flintstones, fast and furious and lots more.

    I was super excited when I saw a car crashed near a big tunnel. What I did not know is we were going into the big tunnel. Inside the big tunnel were dinosaurs from Jurassic Park attacking us, King Kong was wrestling the dinosaurs. Our studio truck was moving all around and was really bumpy.

    Once we got out of the tunnel we went to an area were they film Mexican scenes for films and they showed us how they film rain and floods for the movies. They use sprinklers up high and lots of water to make floods, they reuse all the water over and over again.

    We then drove past the Jaws movie and we saw a diver in the water and Jaws came after him, we saw lots of fake blood in the water, I liked that. They then took us to another tunnel were we saw more floods and cars crashing and an earthquake taking place in a subway.

    They then showed a hotel and a man was carrying a body to his car, it was from a movie called Psycho, he was holding a knife which was very creeepy.

    We went on lots of rides but my favourites were the Harry Potter, The Mummy and the Jurassic Park Water ride.

    At the Animal Antics show, I got picked to go on stage with the trainer and act with the dog called Lily. I gave her lots of cuddles and I think she got a bit distracted because she wasn't doing what she was meant too. She kept doing a cute bark and talking.
    I had to sit in a chair and there was a treat on the ground for the dog but a pug came out form backstage and stole it.
