The Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood is a behind-the-scenes tour which immerses guests into our legendary Warner Bros. Studio where you can explore our iconic backlots, the Archive, the Picture Car Vault as well as soundstages where today’s hottest TV shows and movies are made (the “Studio Tour”).
How to Purchase Tickets
Tickets can be purchased via our website www.wbstudiotour.com or by telephone at (877) 492-8687. All persons wishing to visit the Studio Tour must purchase Tickets in advance and pre-book the time and date of their entrance into the Studio Tour with the option for day of purchases as available. All telephone calls made to (877) 492-8627 will be charged at local rates. Calls from mobile operators and other networks may vary.
Payment must be made in full at the time of buying a Ticket by credit card. We do not accept checks, cash or debit cards.
Upon purchase of a Ticket from our website, you will receive a confirmation email with a PDF e-ticket. Such email constitutes your proof of purchase. Please check that you have received this email following purchase. We take no responsibility should you not receive this email due to reasons outside of our control e.g. junk or spam filtering. The confirmation email or Ticket as applicable must be presented at the main entrance of the Studio Tour for entry.
It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of the details on your email confirmation or Tickets (as appropriate) as mistakes cannot always be rectified. When you receive your email confirmation or Tickets, please keep them in a safe place as we cannot be held responsible for any Tickets that are lost or stolen.
Only Tickets purchased directly from us or one of our authorized distributors are valid for admission. Tickets purchased from unauthorized third parties, including online auction sites, are not valid for entry.
Allocated Entry Time
You will be given the opportunity to select a date and time for arrival at the Studio Tour (an “Allocated Entry Time”) (subject to availability) during the online or telephone booking procedure and this will be shown on your confirmation email or Ticket (as appropriate). For those wishing to redeem a valid gift certificate, please call (877) 492-8687 to arrange your Allocated Entry Time. It is your responsibility to arrive in time for your Allocated Entry Time.
You are asked to arrive at the Studio Tour no later than 15 minutes before your Allocated Entry Time although you will not be allowed access into the Studio Tour before your Allocated Entry Time.
Visitors who miss their Allocated Entry Time are not guaranteed entry to the Studio Tour. Studio Tour staff will advise visitors who have missed their Allocated Entry Time of the next available time slot but at busy times it may not be possible to find a time on the same day in which case it will be necessary to re-book an Allocated Entry Time.
Once an Allocated Entry Time has been issued, it will be necessary to call (877) 492-8687 for you to change the day and/or time of entry into the Studio Tour.
We reserve the right to amend an Allocated Entry Time once it has been issued to you but we will endeavor to notify you as soon as we become aware that this is necessary. Should we have to significantly amend your Allocated Entry Time (i.e. by four (4) hours or more), you may choose to accept the new Allocated Entry Time, arrange another mutually agreeable Allocated Entry Time with us via our telephone booking line or cancel the Ticket whereupon we will refund you all the monies you have paid to us for the Ticket(s) but no further compensation will be paid.
Each person entering the Studio Tour must be 5 years of age or older and must present a valid Ticket at the specified Allocated Entry Time in order to enter the Studio Tour.
Group tickets for parties of (i) twenty-five or more for the regular studio tour; or (ii) thirteen or more for the deluxe tour, may be available at discounted rates. Please contact our telephone booking line (818) 977-1943 for more information.
The price of Tickets may vary from time to time. Our prices are as stated on our website but are liable to change at any time. When buying a Ticket either via the website or by telephone, the total price will be confirmed. We reserve the right to correct any pricing errors even after we have sent you the email confirmation or Tickets (as appropriate) although we will endeavor to do so as soon as we become aware of the error.
Ticket prices are in USD.
Tickets – General Terms
One Ticket purchased entitles one person entry to the Studio Tour on a single occasion. Once you have exited the Studio Tour, you will need to purchase a new Ticket to re-enter the Studio Tour.
All persons entering the Studio Tour must hold a valid Ticket that must be retained at all times and must be available for inspection if required by any member of staff. Failure to produce a valid Ticket on request may result in your removal from the Studio Tour.
Tickets remain our property at all times. We reserve the right to require the immediate return of the Tickets at any time and to refuse entry to, or eject from the Studio Tour, any person who fails to comply with these Terms.
Once acquired, whether by purchase or on a complimentary basis, Tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable and void if altered. Tickets that we reasonably suspect have been transferred or altered will not be honored. Tickets are not for resale. Any such resale shall have the effect of rendering that Ticket void.
Tickets will include entry to most, but not necessarily all, areas of the Studio Tour, as we may have to close areas for production needs or to allow for maintenance and updating.
From time to time, we may decide at our absolute discretion to issue tickets under special promotions (“Promotional Tickets”) but Promotional Tickets will be available subject to availability and subject to any terms and conditions affecting the particular promotion.
Gift certificates are available for purchase via telephone or in person.
A gift certificate entitles one person to visit the Studio Tour. Before visiting the Studio Tour, the gift certificate holder must phone the booking line (877) 492-8687, to book his or her Allocated Entry Time. Timeslots are subject to availability. All individuals under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Please be aware that only one gift certificate recipient can be entered per transaction. If you are intending to send gift certificates to different addresses please book each one as a separate transaction.
For gift certificates bought by telephone, you have the option to choose to have gift certificates sent to you via postal carrier or e-mail. We take no responsibility should you not receive gift certificates due to the failing of the Post Office or other third-party delivery service.
Please protect the gift certificate and treat it as cash. We cannot be held liable for gift certificates which, are subsequently lost, stolen or damaged.
Should you wish to cancel a Ticket, you must notify us immediately by telephone on (877) 492-8687 upon which the email confirmation or Tickets shall become void. We are under no obligation to issue refunds where a Ticket has been canceled by you but, notwithstanding this, any such refund shall be entirely at our discretion.
In rare circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right to cancel a Ticket but we will endeavor to notify you as soon as we become aware that this is necessary. Should we have to cancel your Ticket we will refund you all the monies you have paid to us.
Please note that, in some cases, we accept orders on behalf of third party sellers (e.g. Starline Tours). The resulting legal contract is between you and that third party seller, and is subject to the terms and conditions of that third party seller, which they will advise you of themselves. You should carefully review their terms and conditions applying to the transaction.
We may also provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any representation or warranty that products you purchase from third party sellers through our site, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are disclaimed by us absolutely. This disclaimer does not affect our statutory rights against the third party seller.
Children (under 5 years of age) are not permitted on the tour. All minors, ages 5 – 17, must be accompanied by a person aged 18 years or over while on the Studio Tour.
Health and Safety
A variety of special effects (including sudden loud effects and strobe lighting) may be used in certain areas within the Studio Tour. It is recommended that visitors with high blood pressure, heart conditions or other pre-existing medical conditions ask the Studio Tour staff for further details and avoid areas of the Studio Tour at which such special effects may be located.
From time to time the Studio Tour staff may draw visitors’ attention to certain health and safety procedures to which visitors must adhere including fire evacuation.
While you and other Ticket holders are on the Studio Tour and our premises, you and your guests must comply with all directions of our staff, relevant health and safety notices, security requirements and policies and announcements made available to you.
Any breach of any of these Terms or any unacceptable behavior by you or your guests that is likely to cause damage, nuisance, injury to any other visitor or member of our staff or to the Studio Tour itself shall give rise to the right of the Studio Tour staff to eject you immediately from the Studio Tour.
We shall have the right to refuse admission or to eject you and any other Ticket holder from the Studio Tour if in our reasonable opinion, granting you admission might be a risk to our property, the safety of others and/or affect the enjoyment of the Studio Tour by others and include, without limitation, where there is a breach of the following rules:
- No smoking;
- No pets or animals except for valid service animals;
- No consumption of food or drink outside the designated areas without our express permission;
- No firearms or other weapons;

We reserve the right to ask you to remove items of clothing that we deem to display inappropriate messages or images.
In the interests of safety, you may be asked to submit to a search of your person or belongings and anyone refusing to submit or found to be in possession of materials which we believe to be dangerous or unsuitable will be denied entry or removed from the Studio Tour.
You must keep your personal belongings with you at all times. We accept no responsibility for loss, theft or damage to any personal belongings brought into the Studio Tour.
From time to time we or other authorized third parties may carry out photography and/or other recording at the Studio Tour and any images and/or recordings may feature visitors. You consent to the use of such images and/or recordings by us in connection with advertising, promoting the Studio Tour (such as on the Studio Tour website, social media sites and pages, partner sites, outdoor advertising and brochures for the Studio Tour), and for our internal purposes, and in doing so, you allow us to edit, modify, publish and make available such images and/or recordings. You acknowledge and agree that you will not receive compensation if we use such images and/or recordings for the purposes set out above. If any visitors to the Studio Tour are under 18, you, being the parent or legal guardian of such persons, also consent to the use of their image and/or recordings for the purposes set out above. You acknowledge that the copyright in such images and/or recordings rests with us and/or any authorized third party and accordingly you grant us and/or any authorized third party all rights in any images and/or recordings of you and/or your children. You shall promptly execute such documents and perform such acts as may be required for the purposes of giving full effect to the foregoing.
