The theme park is very clean and well maintained, staffs were great. But some rides or show were outdated. Quite pricy as well.

I visited the Universal Studios in Orlado in 2004, then in 2005 and then 2006. Then again when I went to Tokyo in 2007 I visirted Universal Studio there and also on the same trip in 2007 I happen to see it in Los Angles. The best one I liked was in Orlando...and also the studio part of LA Universal was also very good.
Again Last in September this year I hppened to Visit the LA-Universal.....Truly I can see it many more times. I liked the rides of Orlando Universal

To tell the truth, I do not like the US Universal Parks all that much. This park however is outstanding with a fantastic staff, good food, clean streets and wonderful entertainment. It is very "Disney" and that is a good thing here!

All the shows are in Japanese but the rides are still fun and enjoyable. I especially liked the Space Fantasy ride - that was just awesome! The gift stores have everything from hats to even Elmo instant noodles..

Got two kids 7 and 5 years old. Enjoyed the Kids section of the park with the Hello Kitty and Charlie Brown/Snoopy sections. Some rides are more suitable for kids below 3 years old.
Larger park than the Singapore version but smaller than the ones in the US. Some rides are really showing their age compared to the new rides in Universal Studios Singapore. But overall the experience was very enjoyable as the staff were extremely hyper and friendly despite us only knowing simple japanese phrases and mostly not knowing what the heck they were staying. Pity about the overpriced food and drinks and you can't leave and re-enter the park to eat the more reasonable priced food at the food outlets outside the park. My advice, pack some food and drinks before entering the park.
