Throw in some banana scenery making random cars spin and perhaps one projected room where after the lights flash on everything is bigger for lightning.


Yes! So much could be achieved with such a concept, genius!

Yeah, I don't think that's the case.

Hey guys, at the end of September I'm going to be going to USJ for two days at Hotel Keihan Universal City. I plan to be spending about 1 and a half days at the park and I am wondering what would be be best route on how to do tickets and an express pass (Flying Dinosaur 7 Attraction Pass)? I'm pretty sure they sell them at the hotel, but I'm kind of wondering if I waited until I got there would I have to worry about them (especially the express pass) being sold out?

I'd like to buy a vowel!

If you're set on those two days anyway, then yeah book them ahead of time. I think one of the hotel perks is that you can buy them an hour before the park opens when regular guests can't but if you've already set those dates no disadvantage to doing it, especially if Halloween nights have started by then. I think Flying Dinosaur and the HP rides are timed slots so just pray to the weather gods.

Kind of confused by new ticket policies. It says any tickets bought through online agencies or resellers will be nulled to stop tickets selling out (I'm guessing fast pass issues) but the English website will only let me get them in advance through resellers and agencies they link to. I know on the Japan site you can book them directly.

Edit: Got bored and looked into going during some time off next month and the flying dinosaur 7 seems to be sold out already for days I wanted so yea book now.

MUST BUY RMC MERCHANDISE!!!!

^ When my friend was there a few weeks ago, express passes were sold out before the park opened. I would buy it online just to be safe.

And just in case its not clear, buy them RIGHT NOW! GO!

Not that you were saying anything about the cost, but at this park, its almost impossible to go there without the express pass. Its nuts how busy that park gets! :lmao:

So there was a graphic going around that showed that Super Nintendo World would occupy the south-east corner of the park when it was first announced. The groundbreaking ceremony was held in a parking lot north of the park. Has anybody seen any actual construction going on that would confirm where SNW will really be located?

Thanks guys! Bought my tickets and Express Pass and I'm ready for Flying Dinosaur, Space Fantasy, and Hollywood Dream. I tried doing it through the japanese website (took 2 1/2 hours lol) and it didn't go through thanks to my card being declined, but did it through Klook and it worked.

On a sidenote, it looks like they temporarily re-themed Space Fantasy to a J-pop band or something?

Is it still Kyary Pamyu Pamyu XR ride? or is it something else? It was KPPXRR when I rode it in May 2016 but that was supposed to be over by now. If it is still KPPXRR, then it has Samsung VR goggles and only the front seats are loaded and the spinning is locked. It takes twice as long to load unfortunately. I slipped off my goggles for a second and was still able to see some space fantasy stuff.

Please keep a look out for any construction going on. Really curious where Super Nintendo World is really going in at.

Here's all you need to know about Kyary Pamyu Pamyu if you haven't already seen it:
