  • This is officially my favorite place in Osaka. The theme parks, attractions and rides, the shows, and the food are all excellent! Highly recommended!  more »
  • Organized, safe, clean and very friendly staff. We celebrated my husband’s birthday here and the staff literally jumped for joy to make him feel special. We went in January, the weather was mild and lineups were no more than 10 minutes. The lineups are very organized. The rides were fun. Harry Potter land a beautiful at night. We enjoyed the food. The banana-caramel popcorn is a must!
  • A fun family theme park where the little ones can run and roam freely. Staff never fail to have a smile on their faces. Queues can be long if you do not have an express pass and when you visit during peak period. Food wise, I personally believe Disney(Japan) is better. The night parade is awesome. Just remember to check out their website for ride maintainence so you don't get disappointed when you visit. Overall is nice while I can't help but wonder something is missing unlike Disney theme parks.
