Attracted by the fame of Harry Porter, we went on a week day but the park was still packed with tourists. This park is much bigger than Singapore where we visited two years ago. As my daughter is a big fan of Hello Kitty and...More

The Wizarding World of HP is sooooo amazing. We had a fantastic time too in other attractions although we did not get to maximize the rides because the queue could stretch for 4 hours. The most we could wait is 2 hrs at Jaws. Just...More

Express pass definitely. You will be spending too much time queueing for one ride.
