Despite the packed holiday crowd, my family enjoyed the place with some careful planning. We enjoyed the Harry Potter section the most and even dined there for lunch. We also enjoyed the lights and sounds show in the area just before closing. Amazing! Next time, I will make sure to purchase fast pass tickets so we can maximize the fun!

Great place! It's really crowded even though we went on a weekday. To fully explore the entire place, I would advise a two-day pass plus express pass. I spent a day there with no express pass and could barely explore two zones.

Very expansive grounds and perpetually crowded everywhere you go. There's so many things you can do here. The children were very excited to explore the place and activities.

The facilities are well maintained and very clean. The staff are conversant in English. Toilets were clean - typical Japanese standard. Food and drinks were pricey as expected of any theme park.

There was a night projection show and night parade in the evening during this winter period. Quite a spectacular end to a wonderful day's experience.

I've been to Universal Studios in LA, Orlando and I'm happy to add Japan to the list..

Universal Japan is very similar to Florida as they are theme parks only. The original universal in LA started off as tours of actual movie studios and sets and built a theme park around the studios throughout the decades.

The Jaws ride was a blast and since it was shut down in Florida, Japan is the place to be to check it out. Hollywood Dream the ride was also a favorite of mine. picking your soundtrack on a rollercoaster is definitely a first that was fun. I have reviews for both rides, the Amity Landing restaurant, and the Jurassic Park restaurant.

I would highly suggest purchasing the express pass option to maximize your visit. This allows you to take the express line for particular rides that you select. This guarantees you got on the more popular rides for the day. The Harry Potter worlds in LA, Orlando and Osaka are setup exactly the same as are the rides. However, remember that you are in Japan and all rides will be narrated in Japanese. Overall I would visit again if given the chance in the near future. Enjoy

What a wonderful experience for the entire family. Rides and shows for people of all ages. If you want to avoid the queues for the bigger rides, go single rider. It's way cheaper than doing the express pass which is more expensive than the single entry ticket.

Harry Potter is the most popular, so head there first to get those rides out of the way. If you're a thrill seeker, the Flying Dinosaur and Backdrop are the other good rides.

Most shows are in Japanese, so don't bother trying to comprehend. This park is bigger than the one in Singapore, but the Japanese language puts on on par. Customer service is excellent as expected being in Japan.

Came second week of January, so it wasn't as crowded as December. Cool weather also meant the queueing outdoors was pleasant. Try doing that in Singapore :).

Will definitely come back!

Amazing theme park with many activities to do there even though it smaller than Disneyland. If going during off-peak season, recommended to get the early entrance ticket instead of express pass as you will still get to enjoy most of the ride and save money. There's only one parade at night but the castle light show was amazing. Overall, try to experience every ride and activities around the park.

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。
