I really enjoyed this place. There were a lot of people when we went. Nonetheless, it was enjoying. Cold weather and nice theme parks. I also liked the butter beer in the Harry Potter area. Must try try is the Spiderman ride.

What sets this park apart from its counterparts in Hollywood and Florida is its Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction which comes with its own Black Lake. What is lacking though is the Tram studio tour which is unique only to The park in Hollywood,...More

We enjoyed every single bit of the USJ, parades and shops. It was crowded but still ok. Buy the express pass will help to cut the queue.

The best theme-park by far for me. I’d say better than USS. The crowd, however, were insane! Hence, advisable to purchase the express pass.. since we were there during winter, you can imagine how extremely freezing it was to wait for 2/3 hours in line.....More

Be prepared to arrive early if you did not get your ticket in advance. Pay for express pass if within your budget. You'll get more rides and have tome more time to spare. The highlight is Harry Potter. Souvenirs are expensive. Food portion quite small....More

We purchased the standard 4 ride express pass. The pass was useful for skipping the lines, however not all the rides had ridiculously long times, but others had 30+ min lines. All the staff spoke English and a lot of the signs were in English,...More

We enjoyed the park very much and had a fun time. Even though there were long queues for many of the rides, the cold weather made the wait bearable. I found the Harry Potter ride to be the best, even the queue was outrageously long....More

No, you will still have to buy them. However, you can purchase it from the official hotel itself for the day of your stay and the next day visit. You can’t make an advance express ticket purchase from official hotels.

Hello - I don't think it will be an issue - but I think they check bags too. We had drinks and a few snacks and that was OK
