Universal Studios Japan (USJ) Discussion Thread

P. 45: No Limit! Parade announced featuring Mario, Pokémon & more

Recommended Posts

Well I'm gonna say something a little bold... I think this is easily the best flying coaster. It's pacing is phenomenal, it's relatively long, the elements are unique and the theming seems great. I think Tatsu, Manta, and Skyscraper are great, but I think this takes it up at least one notch in not more Can I just go to Japan?

I am thinking of head to the park on April 28, it's just before golden week so I expect it to be super busy. I went to the park about 10 years ago. The main reason I want to visit is to ride the flying dinosaur (been to HP in Orlando).

 

I am looking at express passes but they are super expensive, also do they only let you ride each ride once?

 

Is it worth going to the park without an express pass?

^ IIRC, the express pass lets you go buck wild on the included rides except Harry Potter land and Hollywood Dream. I seem to remember the rest of the attractions that offered it were unlimited. As for whether or not it's a smart idea to go without the express pass, I'd say that if you're planning on doing Harry Potter it's a must. If you don't care about Potter and don't mind some lines, you might as well give it a try without the express pass, just go straight to Hollywood Dream Back Drop to start your day.

^ Yep and not only that, on top of the multiple choices you have to make with more than 1 attraction on each ticket, but it's been split 3 ways so only the first pass will include Space Fantasy the virtual reality version, the second only includes Flying Dinosaur and the 3rd is only for Backdrop. And the Harry Potter Junior coaster isn't part of the choices it's one of the stand alone of the 7 so even if you weren't interested in a kiddie coaster you can't swap that one.

 

The 3 choices are now listed on the English site: http://www.usj.co.jp/e/ticket/

 

The only other option would be to buy the backdrop 7 and then buy the must-see pass (15th special) on top of that to get the other two but it's really pricey, by that point you could be ending up paying almost double the entry cost just on fast-passes depending on the day.

 

Edit: Here's something interesting I just noticed Back to the Future has been completely removed from all the fast passes.

I saw the POV on Screamscape and I think it will be by far the best flyer in the world. It has lots of zero g rolls and takes the best from Sky Scrapper and Tatsu, and that first drop was very steep for a flying coaster.

I stand corrected on the express pass. Definitely buy it.

That's because it's about to die a sad death for minions.

Actually the current rumor is that the Nintendo area will claim BttF and Backdraft's spot since removing them opens up a lot of space in the south corner of the park.
