Great place with many great rides and attractions. Hollywood ride is something that you will remember for a long time as it has character and great atmosphere and added bonus of cool music while you are riding it. Had to add that music to my Spotify for the memory. Whole section for younger kids, older kids and us adults who still remember the original Jaws.
Harry Potter area is amazing, just feels like you are there. Downside is it’s expensive and very crowded. Best time to ride is at night when the night shows are on. Waiting time can be as low as 5 mins or the time it takes you to walk the length from the entrance to the ride.
Other waiting times can be as long as 3 hours, which is pretty hard in summertime in the heat and humidity.
Great atmosphere that you’ll remember for some time. Worth the money and the wait time

Once when I had a chance to come back to a place that can remind me of my childhood, Many memories came back. I was really happy here. The weather was cold at night but still had to wait for the parade. THE MUST!

There are some good rollercoasters, and the sectors are really very well done. Not all food is tasty, but everything is really expensive, so do your research. It's a shame that a t-shirt is ¥3,800 without tax! All souvenirs and for are 3-4 times the price you'd pay outside... There's very few people now, queues go from 5-30 minutes on average.

This amusement park is on one of my top lists as it is just amazing. It has rides for any age, and or preference. Here is the few that I think are the best. ( this is in no particular order, it really is just your taste )

For younger kids; the minion section there is super fun because it has a main ride which is more of a simulation and around it they have smaller rides and a few carnival games. They also have a minion and other animated characters gift shop in that area. Along with an ice cream shop.

For older kids; the Harry Potter section, the jaws ride, and the Spider-Man ride(the terminator activity is an option, however they only speak Japanese). In my opinion, the Harry Potter section rocks! They have two interesting rides, a journey in which you are trying to help Harry stop a dragon and one in which you ride a griffin. They also have a nice show that they do once in a while. These are all good, but I think that the other souvenirs are the best part of this place. They offer a Harry Potter candy shop where they offer all the snacks possible and a butter beer wagon where they sell butter beer (non alcoholic) and the best part. They sell wands. You can use these in the park to do certain spells such as unlock doors or ignite fire. The other three that I mentioned aren’t as good in my opinion, but the jaws rids is near the Harry Potter section, so go check it out.

For thrill seekers; for those who want the heart dropping feeling of a roller coaster, your in luck. I’m the Jurassic park section, they have a coaster in which you are strapped in via safety bars and then are swung around and around while tumbling up and down. For those who are a little weaker in heart, the other Jurassic park ride would be perfect. It is a water dropper where you board a giant raft with 7 or so other people and are sent on a trip when you are swept up a giant ramp and then are dropped down a waterfall into the lake below. They provide ponchos in the ride.

Finally, the hotel. The hotel is stellar. It is near a shopping mall that is basically connected to the park and they have a couple restaurants inside the hotel too. Over all this is amazing.

Came with 2 young kids so didn't try the biggest coasters.

Some impressive rides for younger kids though. 5yo loved Spiderman, Minion ride, and Jurassic Park the ride. Both kids found a few scary points such as Water World and the dinosaur meeting, though.

Only had 1 lunch but it was surprisingly ok.

As came here during Covid impacted time, there were very minimal lines for all attractions etc. I imagine my Eskridge would've been completely different had I needed to wait inline for a significant amount of time.

One day maximum would be my recommendation. Any longer only if you love all the rides and must see every show etc.

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。
