Riding to Vegas on a motorcycle, clubbing three nights in a row in Sin City – Prince Harry is certainly making the most of his time out West.

The fun continued this week as the Prince, on break from military training in Gila Bend, Ariz. for the Thanksgiving holiday, headed to Los Angeles.

After arriving in the city Tuesday evening, Harry, 27, kicked off the trip Wednesday with a visit to Universal Studios. After a behind-the-scenes studio tour and gourmet lunch, the Prince took a spin on various rides, including King Kong 360 3-D, the War of the Worlds, Jurassic Park: The Ride and Revenge of the Mummy, which he rode twice.

Following a win at the park’s carnival games, Prince Harry gifted his prize – a giant stuffed Curious George – to a nearby child.

Later that evening, the Prince was spotted kicking back with a group of pals at his Beverly Hills hotel, happily chatting with one of his female friends.
