Osaka Universal Studios - Japan

During the week, I decided to check out Osaka Universal Studios Japan!  It took me nearly 3 hours to get to Osaka from Nagoya, but it was worth it.

The tickets at Universal Studios are quite pricey, so I made sure I made the most of my time there.  Thankfully, the park was empty in the morning, so I had a chance to squeeze in a ton of rides without waiting too long.

I love all of the 3D and 4D shows and rides.  I nearly went on every single one.  Spider Man, Back to the Future, and Shrek were memorable.  Space Fantasy is also good unless you get motion sickness.

In "Space Fantasy," you are on a mini-roller coaster that twists, turns, and spins.  You have to store your bag in a locker because it will fly.  Don't forget to remove any hair pieces too.  

My favorite ride is Jurassic Park. You feel as if you are on a dinosaur cruise until it drops below.  If you are in the area, the "turkey bones" they sell at the kiosk outside of Jurassic Park are amazing.

Jaws is another great ride. I love how the Japanese get really into their roles as ship captains.

Waterworld is a show you may want to also see.  It was impressive!  Stay away from the bottom, middle rows if you want to avoid getting went.

Osaka Universal Studios is so much fun!  I really had a good time.

  1. I never knew Japan had a Universal Studios. I recently went to the Orlando one. OMG, if you can, please go! Harry Potter World was so much fun!

    I love the Jaws ride. It's so much fun. I heard Orlando and LA shut down the Jaws ride. So sad!


Thank you for your comments!
