Universal tram tour

Another must do when visiting Universal Studios Hollywood is to ride on the tram. It is about a 60 minute tour that gives you a back ground look at how movies are made, how movie producers use back drops, props, and even a green screen. You may even get a glimpse of one of your favorite movie stars during this tour. Or you may even be one of the lucky ones and get to experience a remake of a scene from the scary movie The Bates Motel or Jaws and become part of the skit. You may even get to experience life of Wisteria lane from the long running show the Desperate Housewives. One of the best things about taking the tram tour is you get a up close preview of many new movie coming out soon, King Kong 360 3D it is a brand new way to experience a tram ride and you will absolutely walk away speechless!
