Our alarm woke us up at 7.30 am and we still felt sleepy as our body clocks are still in ozzie time, we got the girls dressed and headed down for brekkie at the restaurant in front of the hotel. We had a good brekkie and it it was only $ 4.50! After getting the Jeep warmed up and the tomtom sorted we headed to the freeway to tackle the L.A traffic on our way to Universal studios in hollywood, not sure if it was peak hour, but the tom tom said that it should take 41 mins to get there and it actually took about 1 1/2 hours. All I can say I thought Brisbane was bad......
We made it in one piece and got valet parking, it was a bit strange giving the keys to some random dude to park your car but hay its L.A, not the IGA at Deagon. We got our passes sorted and headed inside to check it out. We first went on the studio tour. We saw a lot of the movies we have seen and some T.V series are made here. I must say I was blown away by how many films are
made there and the different movie sets and prop's that are set up towns, small city blocks and car scenes. We got to watch how they are made. We watched the new King-Kong 4D 360* and one word, (sic) awesome movie clip. This tour was just fantastic and I would recommend it to everyone, definently a must-see!!!
After that we went on to get something to eat and after lunch we saw how they make the special effects in movies. That was very cool to see how things were done.
We next went on to Krustyland where the Simpsons ride is and it was like you were at home watching the show. It was cool and the ride just blew us away, awesome! It was even better when I had a can of DUFF energy drink, mmmm DUFF.
We carried on down to the lower level where the Mummy ride and Jurrasic Park is and saw a few more Character Shows and some more movie props (check out the photos) and the girls got some pics with Scoobie Doo.
After leaving there, we headed for Santa Monica Blvd to see if we could run into Paris or Lindsay but
we didnt see them, maybe next time?? we took a ride along to Venice Beach and got lost so we headed back to the hotel for dinner and bed. Off to Disneyland tomorrow, cant wait.
