Been to universal in Orlando, so this is much smaller. But if you are visiting universal first time, it's good to get some experience.

We were worried about the possibility of massive queues after having read some of the reviews but it wasn't busy at all when we were there. We arrived just after 3 pm on a Thursday and discovered that you can buy a Twilight Pass after 3 pm for significantly less than the usual price. There were only 2 people ahead... More

The foods are good too, we had our lunch at the snoopy place, we ordered burger and kids can have pasta and nuggets. We love the shops too, they... More

Feels like you are in Hollywood, except the rides speak Japanese. the Hollywood dream ride is the best. Just keep getting back in line. The diner with had the best burgers we have had in Japan. Didn't care for the back to future or spider-man rides, made me a little sick. We did this on the way back to the... More

I have been to all the Universal Studios in the world, and this is the second best behind Universal Studios Orlando. It doesn’t have a couple of rides like the Mummy, Rip Ride Rock it, Simpsons or Men in Black ride, but it has older rides which you can’t find anywhere like the Jaws ride and the Back to the... More

Went during an off peak time (weekday, non-holidays) Arrived at park about one hour before opening. Queue for ticket purchase was surprisingly short, about 10-15 minutes, queue to enter park was longer, maybe 40 mins or so. Made a direct run to the Spiderman ride, queue was already 45 mins long. This was the best ride in the park and... More

We had the misfortune of going to this theme park on a Japanese holiday ( spring break). We werent able to ride because the lines were more like anacondas with no end in sight. Ride said 170 min wait but felt like an eternity. Although the crowd was very orderly, there were just too many people.
