Universal Studios Japan Opens ‘Hotel Albert’ Attraction Ahead of 2018 Halloween Event

09.September.2018 | SPOT

In the run up to Universal Studios Japan’s (USJ) seasonal event “Universal Surprise Halloween 2018,” the park has opened its new horror attraction Hotel Albert that offers a new way for adults to enjoy Halloween which they are calling “Otona Halloween” (Adult Halloween).

The attraction combines elements of USJ’s “Halloween Horror Night” with immersive theatre, a type of interactive theatre that started in New York’s Off-Broadway theatres in which the audience is a participant in the play to some degree.


People will participate in groups and will become guests of the luxury hotel which is set in a time 40 years ago. The hotel has a lobby decorated with a gorgeous chandelier and guest rooms are decked out with real antique furniture. Guests will be able to walk around the attraction as characters in the story and experience a beautifully haunting tale unfold before them.

Japanese actress Ayami Nakajo experienced the attraction herself and commented the following:

I was a participant of the story and surprises came my way as the story advanced. I became separated from the person I was with. I experienced some frights on my own and came to understand everything at the end when I spoke with everyone in the lobby. There’s never been an attraction like this. They even went so far as to put details in the environment like old furniture and the smells with the scent of old carpets. I was totally immersed in the world. It was a new kind of experience. The horror captivated me, and if you’re a girl then there’s a melancholic story there that you’ll be able to empathise with.


Nakajo also got to experience the park’s first horror maze where you’re not allowed to let your voice out. It’s one of the new attractions called Silence in the Ghost Ship.

“You are followed by fear because you want to scream but you’re not allowed. I wanted to get through it quickly. You can’t let your voice out, so I covered my ears and held my breath as I advanced. My voice and emotions that I was holding back all came out all at once like I was throwing up when I got to the exit.”


Hotel Albert and Silence in the Ghost Ship are just some of the exciting new Halloween experiences arriving at USJ this year for adults. But Universal Surprise Halloween 2018 has plenty in store for families too including Street Zombies and Zombies Mob where zombies will roam about the park. Lots more events are planned to be announced too.


Enjoy a new kind of Halloween this year at USJ.

  • Monster Minions Are Invading Universal Studios Japan for Halloween 2018

    07.September.2018 | SPOT

    Universal Studios Japan is holding its seasonal Universal Surprise Halloween even this year which consists of three elements: Otona Halloween, a sophisticated event for adult guests, Zekkyo Halloween, which is intended to make people scream, and Kowa Kawa Halloween for kids to enjoy.

    In this article we take a look at Kowa Kawa Halloween, which translates to “Creepy Cute Halloween,” and is aimed at families.


    With Kowa Kawa Halloween, kids can look forward to romping with the Despicable Me Minions who have transformed into monsters that are a little bit scary but more cute than anything. They will be playful like you’ve never seen them before.


    There will be several events happening throughout the day too for families to enjoy a full day at the park. During the day there will be a parade titled Festa de Parade as well as the Happy Trick Or Treat where candy will be poured like a waterfall for kids to watch. At night the park will hold its first ever Universal Wonderland Kowa Kawa Night.


    Festa de Parade was held last year too and was thoroughly enjoyed by guests. As well as the parade, they put on the first ever Minion “Kowa Kawa” Party Area where parent and child families of 800 people enjoyed the Minions putting on a stage show. It got pretty wild.

    Gru joined the Minions in the party area who were dressed in creepy cute costumes. Gru and the gang all danced to popular pop songs together while as the crowd cheered. As guests joined in with the party fun by dancing along, parade floats began to arrive.


    A total of nine floats came past all themed around Halloween. Confetti was shot into the air from the stage and floats, surrounding guests in the colours of Halloween.

    Despite the sun setting, Halloween was only just beginning at Universal Studios Japan as they introduced the park’s first ever Universal Wonderland Kowa Kawa Night. The walls of the park attractions are decorated with bats and spiderwebs. There are also creepy-cute projections and pumpkin decorations. It’s a completely different atmosphere than during the day. The characters too dress up in creepy-cute costumes.


    There’s much to be enjoyed at USJ this year for Halloween. Whether it’s Otona Halloween, Zekkyo Halloween or Kowa Kawa Halloween, you’re sure to get your fill of spooks!

  • Universal Studio Japan’s Attack on Titan, Sailor Moon & Other New Attractions Now Open

    03.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

    A special press preview and opening ceremony was held at Universal Studios Japan (USJ) in the run up to the park’s Universal Cool Japan 2019 event.


    Universal Cool Japan is an annual event held at USJ where Japanese entertainment brands and companies who promote Japan’s “cool” culture to the world come together and turn the worlds they create into attractions. This year’s event will see attractions from “6 big franchises” including the first ever Lupin the Third attraction as well as Detective ConanAttack on TitanGodzilla, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Sailor Moon. A total of eight attractions have arrived, the most in the event’s history.


    The opening ceremony was held at USJ’s 4D cinema theatre in the park’s Hollywood area. Japanese actor Yukiyoshi Ozawa, who has played roles in both the Japanese and Hollywood film industry, appeared as a special guest. The event was attended by a small selection of just 100 fans of the entertainment franchises introduced to this year’s Universal Cool Japan.

    When Yukiyoshi Ozawa stepped onto the dark stage donning a very stylish outfit, the crowd erupted with surprise and a flurry of cheers. When asked about struggles that have been important to him, the San Francisco-born actor responded: “When I was accepted for the Hollywood film audition, I was trembling with excitement. I thought to myself, ‘This will help me grow, and I will be able to express myself to the world.’ On the first day of shooting [the Hollywood film], I was so nervous I was shaking, but when the first day ended, I realised that the entire system for shooting films was all the same, the only difference being whether it’s in English or Japanese. That relieved my tension and I was able to concentrate on the film shoot thereafter. You only have to step outside to see, but I think that more and more of the wonderful brands and works of Japan want to be received well around the world, and I believe that Universal Studios Japan is making that big chance possible.”


    Dramatic music played as gigantic visuals of Attack on TitanGodzillaNeon Genesis Evangelion and Salior Moon appeared. Ozawa spoke of his experience seeing three 4D attractions that are running for the event for a limited time, praising their high quality.
