I had heard crazy stories of lines at universal studios Japan USJ. But when we went it was not bad at all. It listed 25min wait for Spider-Man (a good ride!). We waited 5minutes. Harry Potter it listed 30m, we waited 10m. I didn't like the Harry Potter so much because of the 3D glasses. They make the screen too... More

Good day trip and definitely worth it. In comparison to Tokyo Disneyland, it's much quieter, which was nice for a change. The rides are also a lot scarier and more for those thrillseekers, if you're into terror give The Flying Dinosaur ride a go - next level. There are buildings from film sets and with the smaller amount of people... More

I had been in all the Universal Studios and Universal Studios Japan was great place to visit. Travel Tip: Ensure you book your tickets online and reserve fast pass tickets. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is usually full and obtaining fast pass is the best way to see the attraction.

The rides are incredibly amusing. From Harry Potter, Hollywood Dream, until the Jurassic park. I found that more interesting than Universal Studio in Singapore. Roller coaster wins! Just make sure you tried the main rides, my favourite was Hollywood dream backdrop, you could choose music to accompany you while roller-coasting and you couldn't guess what's next because it was backdrop...

(When i left at 1230, no queues and half express tickets still available) Went straight to harry potter world and entrance was not easy... More

Went on a Wednesday and was surprised at the lack of people no problem getting on rides. Did have the express pass which is very good. Harry Potter is amassing and well worth the travel and expense to go there. I had teenage and they loved the day.

But after around 5pm, most of the ride was not in long waiting. Harry potter magic wands were a bit expensive but our children share to use and it... More

We wanted to come back to USJ to see Harry Potter Land. We came on a weekend and after reading all the reviews on the long queue, we decided to get the express pass too. We only buy the standard 4 pass because of budget, but I guess we were lucky. On the day we came the longest queue (without... More
