I like Universal Studio. Not too crowd since we arrived quite early. easy access to any ride. The ride are so fantastic esp. Spiderman and Back-to-future. Shrek 4D is a must, eventhou it is in japanese (no subtitle) just enjoy the ride/show. The story is all the same as in Movieworld Goldcoast Australia. Lots of souvenir to buy esp. Hello Kitty. The Hollywood dream roller-coaster are too scary for me. My son took 3X.

“Treat or Trick week!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Most of the japanese who came were gesr up with Halloween costume so that creates the mood and everyone were in the sport celebrating Halloween. The only thing i found a bit lacking is that the language. There are rides like Spiderman was in Japanese and that kinda put off the mood since i dont speak the language. The staff too should upgrade their english skills since tjey are the frontliners. I was asking about where ro buy the entrance ticket and the discount when i bought the 2 day pass...i end up buying a train ticket instead of an entrance ticket. But above all that the staff's effort is appreciated regardless the miscommunication.

“Had the best day ever with my son.”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Bought the express pass as i am with my son who is quite impatient with long lines, enjoyed the whole day with him, superman 4D ride, Jaws, Back to the Future, Space Fantasy, Jurassic etc....
Had fun the whole day only had one gripe was the expensive but unappetizing food, for what you pay you would expect delicious food. All the shows were in japanese which we did not understand a word but still had much fun.

“Fun Day Out”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

This place is easy to get to from Namba. I arrived just after 9am & the crowds were starting to build. I had pre purchased my ticket from Lawson's the day before where the check out guy helped me as the ticket machine was all in Japanese. Entry was quick with no waiting with my pre purchased ticket The park had been dressed up for Halloween. Lines were extremely long for the most popular rides. Jurassic Park was great even though the very animated commentary was only in Japanese. Don't miss the amazing Waterworld show (also only in Japanese) but non the less entertaining! I got on the line raced to a prime seat at the front & as I sat there waiting locals proceeded to cover themselves with raincoats & ponchos so I new there was a chance we could get wet! As soon as the show started water was being thrown out into the audience, then the jet skis at every turn shot water over the crowd as they entertained the crowd with their stunts. Amazing Spider-Man ride- Fantastic! Zombies were everywhere around the park & were happy for you to take photos with them. A lot of the Japanese youth dress up in fantastic costumes to visit USJ. There are a lot of eateries inside the park. Some rides only operate for a limited time so you could miss out.
