Universal studio good and bad! I didn’t really like it much in Universal studio because the day I went was a holiday, so it was crowded. We have to wait in line for about 30 minutes- an hour, Sometimes we’re going to get bored, so I bought drinks to the benches beside. Sometimes I do like the universal studio because... More

Osaka Universal Studios have Nothing to do with the original LA Universal Studios...Everything is only in Japan language and it is quite boring for a tourist when a Japanese speaking loudly actor makes a half hour introduction for the upcoming show of a duration of 10 min. Huge lines to wait for any show...Unfortunately i payed 60 euros + loosing... More

We pre-purchased our express pass and entry tickets on-line for Universal Studies Japan whilst still in Australia (we got the express pass 7 tickets) for our family of four. Best decision ever. If you are visiting Japan and only have one day at Universal Studies, spend the extra money on the express passes. We walked straight past the 100's of... More

I have been to Universal Studios in Osaka 3 times and all those times haven't been on all of the rides due to the very long lines (perhaps it's the time I chose to go) and compared to places like DisneyLand USA (LA), it doesn't really impress me that much, I only went again and again because of my soon....

Locals who can go on any day, at any time they want, as compared... More

We went to USJ early April on a Monday. The website stated a 0930 open, however, when we arrived at around 0845, the park is already opened for public. There was hardly any line up to get in. We pre-purchased the admission/fastpass 5 and biohazard escape online thanks to google translate. Therefore we head straight in with our QR code... More

I went to Universal Studio for their Wizarding world of Harry Potter which never disappoint me. I had so much fun with the ride, and enjoying the view and decor in the theme park. The food inside 'Three Broomsticks" were average but the butter beer is mind-blowing! I love the cole butterbeer better than the warm once. The turkey leg... More
