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.

1 ride namely, a roller coaster goes around the place, You will see many characters like: Hello Kitty, Snoopy, Woodie wood Pecker, and many other characters I don't know! It's just walking distance from JR Line; Universal City, we'll might be far, but not that far!

First off, to all the precious reviews, this is in Japan so the rides are spoken in Japanese, duh! What were you expecting!? Your presumptions are a bit rude! Look the park isn't AMAZING, some of the rides are pretty lame but let's face it, it's for kids! We (adult couple, no kids) had a great time, we got a... More

USJ Osaka, get the free pass or line at the single lane or ride the attraction after 630pm to reduce the queuing time ... #USJ is very pack even for a rainny day ... No need to bring outside food as the food sold in the park are not overly priced ... All the attraction are in Japanese only ...... More
