Universal studios Japan is a great place for children and adults. I would recommend buying an express pass because the lines for almost every ride are over 2 hours. Getting there early is also a good idea because these express passes can sell out. The entire place is really clean and staff always greet you with a smile. There are a few restaurants and some food vendors in the park, but be ready to pay top dollar.
What can i say, universal studios are always amazing!!!! The harry potter section felt so real life it was actually like I was a student of Hogwarts wandering through hogsmead to get to the castle. The Jurassic park ride somehow always manages to get you soaked. Hot tip.... go in the singles line!!!! Instead of a 1 or more hour wait I got onto every ride within 10 min.
We had a fantastic time from morning to night! Even if you're not the type that love theme parks such as myself my opinion immediately changed during the visit despite not going on any rides. There is still many to do if you don't want any adrenaline rides as such. Ample places to chill and relax. One tip is to purchase an express pass as rides typically have very long wait times, including kiddie rides. Harry Potter's butter beer is a must try hot & cold; the 3 broomsticks restaurant served nice food for the price but one tip there is to request to sit outside at the back of the restaurant as it's more peaceful & less crowded. The view is great too & table area heated during winter. Please visit USJ for a great time!
Want to be younger again. This place is wheelchair friendly. If you plan to rent it here, it will cost you 500yen. All staffs will look after people on wheelchair well and special. I came during new year holiday. The Harry Potter 4D line was too long waiting (2hours) but you can also have a quick walk through Hogwarts castle. Spider-Man Show was great and entertain. Terminator show was in Japanese. If you don’t understand Japanese, you will lose most of the story. Limited English language communications in this amusement park. Credit card accepted at some food stands, but some required cash only.
Was enjoying the day here. We bought fast pass. For the back drop ride. And it’s pretty costly. Played almost everything that we wanted to. And waited for the backdrop ride and Hollywood ride. Then I was being told that I can’t ride that because I was too fat. It’s quite unfair for me as I paid for the fast pass for it. It suppose to be a 5 stars but I gave 3 for now as I’m really really very pissed. Purposely waited there just for our scheduled time for back drop. But then we were told that we can’t. F... They should do something with it. 😡
