My brother and I visited in late June. It was a very fun experience and we did everything we wanted to do in a day, but some of the bigger rides we were looking forward to were closed for maintenance.... more »
Wow, universal studios Japan is amazing. I would recommend getting there at least an hour before entry as it is very busy. It was such a great park, with so many different rides for everybody. I will admit that the lines were quite long for everything we went on. We waited no less than 40 minutes for a ride. But they were all well worth the wait.
This is the place to go if you enjoy great rides! Do some research, check the crowd calendars before you go, and plot out your rides well to avoid waiting in lines for over 1 hour, if you want to maximize your time for rides, that is. I highly recommend purchasing an express pass if you can afford to pay the extra fees. By 6pm, we were able to ride 12 rides. Well worth it. We had such a great time and will be back!
