“Enjoyable but can be better”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you've been to Universal Studios elsewhere, you'd probably experience the same thing and perhaps better elsewhere. The water show was a replica, I remember having spiderman/superman performance but here there is only a photo stop where spiderman posed for photos. The Jaws ride was under maintenance too. =(
We missed Sesame street walking around, though we walked around the place for many hours, only managed to catch Snoopy and Charlie Brown and they were really cute and naughty! Tried running away from people so they chase them! =)

“Terrific park with friendly crew”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The crew working here are super duper friendly. We received so many surprises from them. One of them even wrote a personalised note to my child on the back of a sticker. Apart from that, this is the ONLY Universal Studios in the world where you can find the little cute, pink Sesame Street monster, Moppy.

“Great for children”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

With a little more money, it is worth to get the fast-pass tickets to avoid long queues. Nice place for children and adults who enjoy thrills. Be prepared to spend the whole day so go early.

Would have been better if the Spiderman and Jaws ride were not under maintenence. Spiderman will be reopened in mid July or end of July (not sure).

I would prefer Korea's Everland, one T-Express ride in Everland wins all the rides in USJ.

But overall it was quite enjoyable.

“Tiny but playful!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

It's a much smaller than the US's one but it's definitely bigger than Singapore's! Especially there's a section which is Hello Kitty, Elmo and Snoopy! No roller coasters/thrilling rides are included in this section though. Totally cute and worth to visit!
