Came just for Harry Potter but it's nice

I did a half day rate by coming after 6pm. I'd been to many amusement parks so I just wanted Harry Potter. Harry Potter here is much smaller than Florida I've heard. Honestly... read more

Think back to your childhood: Was there anything you did endlessly that parents or others had to tear you away from for mundane things like meal time or sleep? Not to mention the long waiting lines, I would say that this theme park is huge and offers so many fun places to explore. I spent most of my day at... More

I did a half day rate by coming after 6pm. I'd been to many amusement parks so I just wanted Harry Potter. Harry Potter here is much smaller than Florida I've heard. Honestly, I was underwhelmed. :( The park is nice and clean but, as it was during national vacation time AND when most Europeans have summer vacation, the country... More

This place might be one of the best theme parks around the world. It is after all,a universal studios Universe! This theme park has many different themes like jurassic Park, Harry Potter and even one piece. The different universes inside are quite big and you will need some time to see it all and enjoy it. My favorite here has... More

Unreasonablylongqueue Simulator Japan, or the USJ as some call it. It is an amazing place to visit; however it's just too busy. I feel that the express pass just makes everyone elses wait even longer and kills the spirit a bit. The Harry Potter World is pretty amazing but expect to queue for over 2 hours for some rides if...

Crazy long lines here. I wanted to try the Jurassic roller coaster but the ride had a two hour line. Went to buy an express pass and all they had was the 4 ride standard so I bought it before realizing that the jurassic roller coaster was not part of the plan, only Jurassic-the ride. Buy the 7 ride express... More

To fully enjoy USJ, you have to be prepared to spend $$$..especially the Harry Pòtter attraction which restricts the free entry pass due to high demand. We bought the fast pass for 4 and plus the entry tickets caused us almost US$135 each. In view that we spent the entire day there till almost 8pm and had lots of fun..it... More

Arrive early (an hour before official opening hours) and buy express pass before hand to avoid long queue, esp for harry potter ride. We bought express 4. We didnt run like other ppl to the harry potter as with the express pass you will get a timed ticket. Since we had the express we were not too concern with the... More
