Be ready for the super long queue

The place is excellent except for the queue. If you have extra money, you better pay more for express pass. Save your time a lot, and it's worth it!

We visited on Tuesday morning, not during Japanese holiday. It was not too busy, plenty of space and no wait for toilets, shops or even Butter-beer. We have purchased express tickets online to save time on waiting. IT ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT! Forbidden Journey ride was only 3 min wait. Recommend to do this ride first thing, it started to get...

The howard area entrance is done through a 'lucky draw' when there are 'too many' visitors. The staff in charge could not speak basic English, all she could say was, "You, NO!" on repeat. that was the first and last unpleasant service we came across is our 12 days in Japan. The rides are minimum, yes minimum, 1 hour wait.... More

Managed to take the Flying Dinosaur ride after waiting for an hour half and it's definitely good!! Also, took the Harry Potter ride which is also good.. Really had a good time enjoying the view and staying in the park from morning till evening. We were there during winter, so, just the right time to enjoy the Christmas shows.

Worth a trip. Similar to their park in Singapore (maybe a bit larger). A bi quirky, but then again most things here are.

We hardly can enjoy any rides ...because of the queuing time is too long, not suitable for kids. We suggest to any of you who will go to USJ to buy the fast pass. The only good thing about Universal Studio Osaka is the Harry Potter world. Me and my kids enjoyed the Wizarding world of Harry Potter so much.... More

Particularly went to USJ for Harry Potter, be warned though the place is mainly catered to their locals rather than tourists. Their rides are in Japanese and so are their maps of the park. Staffs there rarely speak or understand English, one staff had physically pushed me away just because he couldn't communicate. Would highly recommend you to go to... More

Countdown celebration in Japan is a rarity. The celebration at USJ, as it is locally known here, is a revelation with DJs, Music, Lights and last but not the least Awesome Fireworks!! The party pass is really convenient way to attend with multiple entries possible and all night Park and ride operation just adds to the festive atmosphere. We ended... More
