Your Universal Studios Hollywood Super Silly Fun Land Guide

We were invited for a media event, all opinions are our own. 

despicable me waterpark universal studios hollywood (2)One of our favorite places to visit is Universal Studios Hollywood, there’s nothing like watching movies truly come to life that makes for an extraordinary adventure! Newly opened at Universal Studios Hollywood is Super Silly Fun Land, where Minions reek mayhem and your family is bound to have lots of fun!

In Super Silly Fun Land you will find The Minion Ride, a Minion themed water play area and adjacent is Gru’s Lab Cafe.  A nearby dry zone invites your climb, jump and slide, while a Minion-themed ride, “Silly Swirly Fun Ride,” will soar and spin guests around for a 360-degree view of “Super Silly Fun Land” aboard a fleet of uniquely styled ride vehicles.

You will have a chance to try and beat the odds as they vie to win Minion game prizes and their own stuffed unicorn.

    This looks like such a great place for little kids – I didn’t know Universal had this stuff.



  2. Alesha @ Full Time Mama on August 5, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    I haven’t been to Universal Studios since I was little… It’s clear I need to go back and take my kids! I am loving the splash pad!



  3. Kecia on August 4, 2014 at 8:00 am

    Looks like a great place to spend the day! I want to visit all of the Universals at some point!



  4. Rosey on August 4, 2014 at 7:49 am

    We haven’t been there, but I’ve wondered how it would be for the smaller kids. Now I know. Thanks for detailing it.



  5. Krystal on August 3, 2014 at 7:35 pm

  6. Janell Poulette on August 3, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    I didn’t realize they had this at Universal. We really need to plan a trip. My kids would love this!



  7. Angela S on August 3, 2014 at 5:58 pm

    What a magical time you had! You really captured the fun and highlighted some great features of the park.

  9. Pam on August 3, 2014 at 5:21 pm

    I live a few minutes from this Universal Studios and we use to take our kids there several times a year and then all of our relatives that would visit. Boy has it changed and it looks wonderful.

    This looks like so much fun!! Your pictures are priceless…I love the one of the Minion squirting water at your daughter. 🙂



  11. Jaime on August 3, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    I visited Universal in Hollywood a few years ago. It was so much fun – and after seeing your photos, I definitely want to go back (and take my son!)



  12. Debra on August 3, 2014 at 10:22 am

    I’ve never been to Universal before. It looks like it is a lot of fun. We don’t get out to CA too often, but I’ve got to remember this when we do go.



  13. Lisa on August 3, 2014 at 10:17 am

    That looks like a lot of fun! I love the themed eats at Universal too!



  14. Dawn on August 3, 2014 at 9:11 am

    This is a really great guide. It’s very in-depth and the models you found for the pictures are just adorable. =D Seriously, though. It can be difficult to find everything in a place that big.



  15. Ann Bacciaglia on August 3, 2014 at 8:17 am

    I would love to go to Universal Studios Hollywood. Looks like you guys had a great time and I love the photos of the food. The chicken and corn look really good.



  16. Pam on August 2, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    That looks like such a fun place to visit! I love the minion desserts.



  17. Katrina on August 2, 2014 at 3:23 pm

    My son is addicted to anything minions, so we are planning a Universal trip for December. This was a great preview!



  18. Jennifer on August 2, 2014 at 3:12 pm

    ah I’m so jealous. The Universal Studios in Florida doesn’t have this 🙁 We just have one Minion Ride. This looks sooo fun. I know my girls would love it because they just ran over and “ooh” and “ahh” over your pictures, lol



  19. Chrystal @ YUM eating on August 2, 2014 at 2:58 pm

    Minions are the best. I would have been just as excited as the kids!



  20. Rob on August 2, 2014 at 1:55 pm

    Looks like an awesome day especially the water park. I really like the desserts especially the minion cupcakes.



  21. Virginia @thatbaldchick on August 2, 2014 at 12:11 pm

    That Minion Play area looks like a load of fun! My kids would absolutely never want to leave!
