I had such an amazing experience here it is an awesome place to adventure for harry potter fans. I would have to defintly reccomend the universal express pass. It is costly but the main attractions will have lines of around 120-180 mins and with express you will cut the time down too 10 minutes. Would defintly pre order this pass... More

Evangelion XR the Ride: The best of this years Cool Japan attractions. You put on a VR visor (just like the one you can pop your Samsung smartphone into) and get on a ride.... More

We got to do everything we wanted to do in USJ in a single day by doing some planning and pre-purchasing tickets & fast passes online about 3 weeks in advance. Some reviews said only locals can buy tickets - this is not true. On the USJ english site they list some pre-approved travel agents for English visitors. Look for... More

I was going here with an open mind knowing that it possible wasn't going to live up to Orlando, however I thought it would be a thousand times more enjoyable than it actually was. Wait times for rides and attractions at the lowest were 30-60 mins which you expect at such a place, but the main attractions where in excess... More

Great rides in Universal Studio. The Harry Potter is really nice. Great decoration and very entertaining. The queue is quite bad, some tips from me ... go with the shortest queue first because its getting less and less queue in the afternoon. Also dont forget to try the butterbeer !

Nice place to visit but be prepared for long queues to play the rides and rather expensive food. Of course you could cut some queues with Fastpass but be prepared to pay.

Very good . My 8 yr old loved the Harry Potter village . My 70 yr old father couldn't stomach consecutive rides but agreed the Spider-Man and Harry Potter rides were great . Pity q was long . The jaws ride was hilarious

This park is easy to get to by subway. This is the cleanest amusment park I have been to. It might be because Japan is the cleanest country I have seen. The Harry Potter area is very spectacular and I have never seen any of the movies.

The flying dinosaur, Hollywood dream ride and the whole of the Harry Potter world was amazing. I enjoyed every single experience here. The lines get extremely long so I suggest purchasing express tickets for the rides mentioned above and arriving at the park before it opens.
