Warner Brothers’ guided tram tour zips through the studio’s sizeable footprint—110 acres on the Valley-side of the Hollywood Hills—with about a dozen other passengers onboard. It’s an encyclopedic tour of all types of filming locations, with a journey through the backlot’s city stand-ins, recognizable residential square and a jungle lagoon, as well as a stop on both single- and multi-camera sets. There's a museum-like presentation of picture cars, props and lighting throughout the various warehouses; in fact, there’s an actual museum midway through the tour with everything from Looney Tunes concepts to Gravity spacesuits, along with an entire upper floor dedicated to the Harry Potter films. The second half of the tour, spent mostly navigating the sprawling grid of soundstages, can’t help but drag in comparison to the preceding memorable photo ops: a seat on the couch at Friends' Central Perk, your house selection from the Sorting Hat and the chance to come face to face with almost every Batmobile imaginable.
For fans of: Ellen, Conan, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Pretty Little Liars, Friends, Harry Potter, Batman, Looney Tunes
You won’t find anywhere else: A dedicated studio museum, and by far the most to see on any studio tour.
Tip: Buckle up if you plan on leaning out the side of the tram for photos—you don’t want to become an involuntary stuntman.
