Though I have visited Osaka many times, this was my first visit to USJ. It is simply amazing and awesome. A perfect place for fullday entertainment for entire family. Do not miss it if you visit Osaka.

Fantastic rides. The jurassic park flying ride probably the best ride I've ever been on. Much better rides than disney. The only dairy free thing to eat though is the pepper pork ribs from the cart in jurassic park but they were great!

What do you have to do to get a Fast Ticket here? Where is the entrance to the Jurassic Park Rollercoaster? Everything was so unclear. The shops were dull. Harry Potter was amazing. Waaaay too many minions.

It is an altogether different experience and is good in its own way. I would recommend it if you are in Osaka. You need one whole day for it

Hello, there should be an expiry date on the ticket, if not it may be best to contact USJ directly. The machine does not take the ticket it marks it as used only, so you can keep the ticket as a souvenir.
