Universal Studios Osaka, Japan

Hated it! LOL

Naw … it was okay, but pricey. It costs Y6,200 to get into Universal Studios Osaka. That’s $76! We (mostly “he”) got on:

Jaws was really good

It’s a lot better than the one in Los Angeles. I won’t tell the ending, but you’ll have two surprises that are fun on this ride.

This one had great lights and tech, but since I couldn’t speak Japanese it wasn’t as fun as it could have been. I could follow along and get the gist of the story, but I wouldn’t recommend it to non-Japanese speakers.

Wack. Wack. Wack!

You walk through 3 stages. The first shows a video of Director Ron Howard talking about the movie (in Japanese). The second shows a video of two actors in the movie talking about the movie (in Japanese). The third actually puts on a pretty good pyrotechnics show with a bit of a surprise. It took waiting in a 45 minute line to watch 2 videos and view a 2 minute pyro show. If that’s your thing, that’s cool, but know what you’re getting into.

I’m hoping Corey will speak on this one. I thought it was a rollercoaster so I didn’t get on it. He said it was pretty good though.

Again, I was too much of a wuss to get on it. Corey says it’s like Space Mountain, but better because the seat twirls around as you’re going up and down on the rollercoaster.

We didn’t make it on Back to the Future because the line was too long. We should have waited for this one ’cause Backdraft … you guessed it …. sucked!
