[Osaka] - Universal Studio Japan

Welcome to meheartseoul humble blog, where I share my unforgettable sweet memories
Universal Studio Japan (USJ) was the first theme park under the Universal Studios brand to be built in Asia. We spent about 6 hours inside this most visited park in Japan.

Walking from the carpark to Universal Studio entrance, we saw 
construction site of 'The Wizarding World of Harry Potter' theme park.

 It was only opened in July 2014, which was 3 months later after our visit.

Actually, we're more interested to visit magical world in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft 
and Wizardry, as Universal Studio Singapore doesn't have Harry Potter Theme Park.

Not to mention Hollywood Dream Backdrop.

We both don't really enjoy roller coasters. I've 'weak' heart... so don't want to get heart attack because of these 1 - 5 minutes rides! 

I experienced 'Revenge of the Mummy' Ride in Universal Studio Singapore (USS), which we went in without knowing that it was indoor high speed roller coaster in total darkness, and unexpected fireballs, swarms of scarab beetles and an army of warrior mummies. I literally cried inside and beg it to stop. You know it's so scary... I didn't know what to do inside, don't know where to grab especially it suddenly reverse in lightning speed! Worse than nightmare!!!
