2015/06/16 Japan 2015 Day 15: Osaka Universal Studios
π 2015-06-16 01:01 in Japan, Japan2015, Trips

On the last day, my dad left early for his plane, while my plane was at 16:40, so I had some time left on my hands, but by then I had seen pretty much everything worthwhile in Osaka, esepcially including our visit last year already. So, I settled for Universal Studios.
At first, it feels a bit silly to go there for only half a day (I had to leave by 13:00 sharp), but I figured that by being efficient I could see most of the park by that time. To help towards that goal, I bought the skip 5 lines pass, and sure enough was able to do all the attractions that mattered by 12:45 (I'd have missed a couple but 2 were closed, so it worked out).

Some attractions like backdraft and back to the future are exactly the same as universal studios in Hollywood, while others I hadn't seen before, including the brand new Harry Potter movie/ride combo that people lined up 2h30 to see. Thankfully with my pass, I only had to wait 10mn to get in.

I arrived 30mn before the park opened and it was a good idea because plenty of people showed up too, and thankfully I was close to the front of the ticket buying line. Once in the decors were quite nice:

Some rides were ride/movie combinations where the blend wasn't bad at all actually:

Back to the future:




A few rides:

150mn wait for the new Harry Potter ride

Hollywood Dream, the ride was an ok roller coaster, but not worth the normal line

The new harry potter area was very well done:









By then, it was time to get back to the airport and fly home:
