Universal Studios Japan – we were in time for the Attack on Titan XR ride! (How to go, what to expect)

You guys already know how I’m a huge theme park fan, so it should surprise you that I went to Universal Studios during my trip to Osaka.

I booked my tickets through Klook, as always.

Book Universal Studio Japan tickets here : click me

tip: if you’re gonna head there during a high season, I do recommend that you purchase their Express pass booklet or you won’t be able to maximize your time there. The Express pass is a different purchase from your entrance ticket.

You have an option to get
a. Express Pass 4   – click me
b. Express Pass 7 – click me

When you head over to Klook’s website, you will see a calendar with ticketing types, just like this.

I already planned that we will be heading to Universal on the 21st , the opening day of the Attack on Titan ride and we were so lucky that that date is considered low season.Screen Shot 2020-01-14 at 8.17.19 PM

Klook will email your ticket and it will look like this.

when you line up for entrance, all you have to do is place the photo over the barcode scanner. If you’ll be going with a group, I recommend that you distribute the e-tickets already prior to your trip so that you don’t have to pass cellphones just so other people can enter.

How to go to Universal Studios Japan:
1. Get down at Universal City Station

2. There is only one exit so just follow the crowd

My view when we went during a “low season”

You will walk past shops and restaurants before reaching the entrance

entrance line was a nightmare! can you imagine lining up for tickets AND entrance?? what time would you enter the park????

After some time, we managed to finally enter the park.

I bought and brought my own outfit for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and I got my dad a set as well. I did this so that we won’t have to buy costumes and merch inside. Unfortunately, I ended up spending on merch while I was there and I ended up buying a Survey Corps Pancho that they were selling.

I’m a huge Attack on Titan fan, in case you didn’t catch that, and I was so happy that they made a Survey Corps Mess Hall where you can dine inside and take a photo with Levi Heichou (insert girly scream).

So scroll down to see some photos!
