East Meets West
Senado Square, Macau, 2011
This is one of the few places that I requested my friend to put as a must-visit for our itinerary. The only Universal experiece I had was at Universal Studios Singapore and it was a pleasant one, so I was really looking forward to Universal Studios Japan in Osaka.
USJ is much bigger than Singapore’s and the two places have quite different rides. I find the rides in Singapore better, especially The Mummy’s ride, however, USJ has something cute and unique – Universal Wonderland. Universal Wonderland is a heaven for younger kids with their Sesame Street Fun World, Snoopy Studios and Hello Kitty Fashion Street.
My friend’s favourite ride is the Back To the Future ride and mine is the Spiderman’s ride. We gave the roller coaster a miss though as I don’t have the guts to try it. However, the roller coaster is indeed a beautiful sight at night as it was lighted up like a shooting star soaring through the night sky.
