    We purchased express tickets for Universal Studios Hollywood and they were definitely worth it. We had one day at Universal and the express passes massively saved us time queueing and we actually got to do most of the rides twice (you can use the express pass once on each ride). Using Attraction Tickets was easy and the pass that we saved to our phone worked seamlessly at the Universal gate.
