CityWalk of Fame: 5 Ways to Keep the Fun Going After Universal
Your night’s just getting warmed up once you step into CityWalk…
It’s after dark and you’ve left the Park… but hey, Hollywood is just as lively when the stars are out as when the sun is shining! Every step of CityWalk features shopping and dining options galore, more photo ops for you and your family than can fit in one phone, and experiences you’ll only find here. So start walkin’ toward memories so epic, there’s no wonder we’ve got a red carpet ready for you! (No paparazzi though. Who needs that hassle?)
1. Catch a movie at the all-new, world-class Universal Cinema
Ever wonder what it’s like to watch a movie in a real Hollywood director’s screening room? Well, we’ve got the experience right here. Give yourself enough time before the show to take in the modern designs throughout the exterior and lobby, shop for concessions at the Marketplace, or grab a drink at the “Director’s Lounge” Bar upstairs. Each theater comes equipped with state-of-the-art sound and picture quality, with reserved seating and reclining lounge chairs that will make your living room jealous. Oh—and it’s an AMC theater, so those loyal AMC Stubs members get to feel even more at home. Kick back, popcorn up, and see a movie in style.
2. Make Shopping Magic at Universal Studio Store
Of all the deluxe shopping in store at CityWalk, there’s one store particularly perfect for movie buffs of all ages. Fans of iconic characters, classic Universal movies, the disobedient dinos of Jurassic Park, and much, much more can gear up, dress up, and geek out to bring their favorite stories to life and bring them home. Plus, snacks and sweets can tide you over (and give you a nice little sugar rush of inspiration) as you discover the most exciting gifts for the cinephiles in your life… and picture the looks on their faces as you hand them over.
3. Chow Down and Party Down at Hard Rock Cafe
If you haven’t already worked up an appetite, get ready to give your stomach a VIP treatment worthy of a rock star. Explore both floors of CityWalk’s Hard Rock Cafe to find signed memorabilia from the world’s most iconic performers, bob your head to classic and modern rock you know by heart… and by the time you’re back in your seat, you’ll be ready to eat your heart out. A full service bar, a wide array of American eats, and plenty of options for veggie-lovers and little rockers makes Hard Rock Cafe a jukebox of flavors ready to rock any and all taste buds.
4. Request Your Favorite Tunes at Howl at the Moon
They’re called dueling pianos, but don’t worry, they’re only fighting for your attention… and your love. Howl at the Moon is waiting on the second story of CityWalk and has plenty to howl about: enormous tropical drinks perfect for sharing (… or not), live music to light up the night, and the famous dueling pianos: two piano players who go back and forth taking requests until the audience decides who the bigger crowd-pleaser is.
5. Give Your Wings a Whirl at iFly
The night is young, so adventurers of all ages should have it in them for one last thrill… and we have a doozy. iFly simulates the skydiving experience on the ground, with the sensation of free fall on a cushion of air that lifts you off your feet until you’re floating! Plan on arriving with an hour’s worth of prep so you can check in, gear up, and learn all the moves. After your “dive,” you can put your feet back on the ground and walk away with a flight certificate, photos, and some seriously priceless memories. It’s a fun, safe, and unforgettable way to unleash your superhero side… don’t worry, your secret identity is safe with us.
