  • We’re frequent visitors to the Hollywood and Orlando Universal Studios locations, and I would rank Osaka below Orlando and well above Hollywood. As is the case with everywhere in Japan, the Osaka...  more »

  • Organized, safe, clean and very friendly staff. We celebrated my husband’s birthday here and the staff literally jumped for joy to make him feel special. We went in January, the weather was mild and lineups were no more than 10 minutes. The lineups are very organized. The rides were fun. Harry Potter land a beautiful at night. We enjoyed the food. The banana-caramel popcorn is a must!
  • A fun family theme park where the little ones can run and roam freely. Staff never fail to have a smile on their faces. Queues can be long if you do not have an express pass and when you visit during peak period. Food wise, I personally believe Disney(Japan) is better. The night parade is awesome. Just remember to check out their website for ride maintainence so you don't get disappointed when you visit. Overall is nice while I can't help but wonder something is missing unlike Disney theme parks.
  • Good attractions and exciting roller coasters, Flying Dinosaur is by far the best. We went on January 29 and it was almost empty, no need to buy express pass really. All the attractions videos are in Japanese and almost anybody speaks English, being worldwide as it is it should have at least subtitles to fully understand the plot of games. Nintendo park is still under construction. Getting to the park is really easy, subway drop you exactly by the park access.
  • Great place to have fun with friends. Generally lines for the rides are around 1-2 hours. But it can be quite fast after 7. We came in at 8.30am and got 3 rides by 5. But got another 4 rides from 8-10pm. Recommended: Harry Potter, Spider Man, Jurassic Park with the water ride, Hollywood ride(which is the second craziest ride in the theme park).
  • We went in the afternoon so did not managed to try everything. Spent most of the time at the Wonderland area with our 4 year old, which was enjoyable and appropriate for young kids. The Harry Potter castle illumination was lovely. And the night parade was elaborate. A hack to share - skip the queue with "Child Switch". If 2 adults go with a kid, you can inform the staff to let you take turns to take the ride alone via Single Rider line, while the other parent take care of the child.
