hkn 2007 in the last week

We have been there for 2 days with twin teenagers in the raining day starting morning till noon and cloudy in the evening. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t friendly on one hand . in other hand we ware able to ride almost the attractions . The boy’s favorites are Flying dinosaurs 🦕 Mario Kart Harry Potter Hollywood dreams Demon Slayer Absolute super plus the waiting hours less than one hour. Please note Please come into the park in the early morning cos 5 minutes attraction equals to 200 minutes waiting time, But Have a fun 🤩

Very well maintained theme park. All the staff are very friendly and greet you with waves and happy faces. Recommend choosing your time for entering Super Mario as soon as you get through the gates, as it is a timed entry. Makes sense as it would be way too crowded if they didn't. Rides are long wait but to be expected for theme parks.

We came here not expecting it to be fun and thrilling for adults like us. But this place brings you back in time when you were still loving Super Mario bros, Luigi, Snoopy, Puss and boots, Harry Potter, Jaws, Shrek, Jurassic Park and so much more. The best ride was the Flying Dinosaur! It shook us in all directions! The line was an hour wait, but it was worth it. You need to go to the bathroom before you go. This ride holds you horizontal, on your stomach, all weight on the harness, so you can see the whole theme park, and it will run spiral and turn you upside down! I literally cried and cursed a lot in the end because I don't usually ride roller coasters (I was forced by my hubby to try). But I guess it was worth it. You just have to let go and let the ride carry you. Even if it was a rainy and freezing day, the theme park was packed. We were not able to try Super Mario and Happy Potter. The queue was so long that we just dried and thawed ourselves in the themed cafes. Maybe we can still go back but not during winter and rainy seasons.

We came here really to check out Nintendo World, and it didn't disappoint. Attention to detail was awesome and Mario kart ride was a lot of fun along with the entire area being interactive if you have the wrist bands. Quick note, though, even with timed access limiting crowds, it was still packed. Best bet would be to try and get an early timed entry. Also, do some research beforehand if you want to try and hit all the "mini-games" and unlock everything. Also, somewhat unrelated but the Jurassic Park roller was top 5 best coasters I've been on. Definitely worth checking out.

An excellent theme park suitable for all ages! Purchased tickets in advance, including fast pass tickets, which are a bit pricey at 1.5 times the entrance ticket cost. Despite the cost, I strongly recommend the fast pass for quicker access to popular rides. It's essential for entering Nintendo World, which has a strict policy and requires a specific time slot for fast pass holders. Some opt to camp before opening for a chance to enter without a fast pass, but it's on a first-come, first-served basis if you register. My top picks were Nintendo World and Harry Potter World. Spending a whole day at USJ is highly recommended. While food and drinks are typical theme park prices, they remain affordable, and I enjoyed everything. I recommend this to anyone visiting Osaka, regardless of age.
