Fantastic day out! The park open at 8:30am and closes at 10pm on most days. Tickets are expensive however. One day pass prices are as follows: An adult ticket is 7,900 yen, a child ticket is 5,400 yen and a senior ticket is 7,100 yen. An adult ticket is required for anyone age 12 or older and a senior ticket can be purchased for those aged 65 and over. You can easily spend the whole day here as there are many rides and shows on throughout the day. There is a downside however to the shows, they are only provided in Japanese. You also require an additional ticket (free) to visit the Harry Potter section of the park. We got our tickets at 11am for Harry Potter and by that point many of the tickets had run out so ensure you arrive early if you want tickets for Harry Potter. Food and drinks are very expensive in the park.

There are lots of rides and activities to do here. We went for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and I loved it. It is very crowded and would be best to get there right when it opens to avoid the crowds and extremely long wait times (if possible). For any Harry Potter fan, I’d say it is worth the price and braving the crowds just to see everything for Harry Potter. The butter beer was delicious but very sweet. I recommend cold butter beer over hot butter beer. We only went on 1 ride because the lines were 2+ hours long at that point. The lines may not normally be that long but we happened to go on the first day of summer so tons of people were there. If you love Minions, this is the place for you. There are tons of themed food and drinks to try as well.

Everything is actually nice. The rides are fun and there are a lot of souvenirs available for you and your loved ones. The hospitality of the employees were also great. Even if I'm a foreigner, they still accommodated me with the best of their abilities. The only downside of it all is the waiting. In every attraction or ride, there are always long lines. Sometimes it takes 2-3 hours just to take one ride. It can be hard especially when you are on schedule. If you are patient enough, then that's fine.

This is simply amazing. It's the first time I went to a theme park, not a fan previously. But the Hollywood dream and Minions totally changed my mind. We arrived roughly 1h before the park opened and there were already like 20+ visitors ahead of us in our line alone. The moment it opened, we rushed to Harry Potter, no waiting entailed. The ride was a bit scary but really cool. Minions was really relaxing. Single Rider was available in Hollywood Dream. I went after taking the backwards ride. I am not sure but all three single rides I went on they were facing forward.

One tip: if you book the ticket online, better print the QR code, i failed to scan it at the entrance.

SIMPLY AMAZING!!

The rides, combined with the shows, gave a unforgettable experience.
For the summer, they put up the One Piece Premium show! I had ran out of adjectives to describe it.

It will definitely take an entire day.
Pls buy the express pass to skip the queues.
Otherwise every big ride is at least a 2 hours wait. Individuals have a separate line of their own for certain rides! Do capitalize on it!

Japan Osaka Universal City, Changchun, China are known as the Hollywood of the East Changying century city. Felt Changying century city are spectacular, but went after Osaka, feel Changying century city is too small.
The most important thing is Japan's tourist service is really very good, regardless of which attractions go, meticulous service always makes you feel warm.

日本大阪有环球影城,中国长春有东方好莱坞之称的长影世纪城。当时觉得长影世纪城非常壮观,但去过大阪之后,才感觉到长影世纪城太小了。
最主要的还是日本的观光地的服务真的很好,无论去哪个景点,细致的服务总是让你感觉到暖暖的。
