The themed restaurant, “Attack on Titan Survey Corps Diner,” is so realistic to a quality you wouldn’t believe, with the Survey Corps members’ weapons and personal belongings left casually around the place. Guests can feel immersed as they listen to the conversations between the characters will chowing down on their meal, take a photo with life-sized versions of Levi and Hange, and more.

“Not only do you solve cases, there’s also a gaming aspect to the challenges which require the use of the AR terminal. It’s also a team game where you work with others, so I enjoyed it with everyone else. A lot of characters make an appearance too, it was so cool.” (Female, 20/Osaka Prefecture) *Translated from Japanese

There’s also the Detective Conan Mystery Challenge in which guests take a hands-on approach to solve various incidents around the theme park. Harley Hartwell, Kazuha Toyama, and Tomoya’s love rival Momiji Ooka are also present in this game with in the form of a real-life cast.

  • Universal Studios Japan Countdown Party 2020: Celebrate 1 Year Of USJ in One Night

    12.September.2019 | SPOT

    Universal Studios Japan (USJ) has dropped some details on this year’s New Year’s celebrations. The event, titled Universal Studios Japan Countdown Party 2020, will wrap up 2019, celebrating one year of the theme park in a single night. It will begin at 7pm on December 31 and run until 2am on New Year’s Day. Pre-sale tickets to the event, called “Party Passes,” went on sale on Thursday (September 12).

     

    The park has over 3,500 colourful fireworks in its arsenal ready to launch into the sky after the countdown, beckoning the New Year and the start of USJ in 2020. During the event, all the most popular attractions will be all-you-can-ride for a total of 26 hours. Last year’s countdown party was so popular that all of the tickets sold out. According to a survey carried out by the park, 95% of people were highly satisfied with the experience.

     

    USJ has another incredible line-up of exciting things planned for 2019, including the special “one-night-only season events” which have been revamped this year. This consists of a variety of incredible shows and entertainment themed on each season.

    The World Street Festival, which thrilled guests back in spring, will make an exciting return, as well the Extra Cool Summer event which cooled down the park with water and snow this summer.

    And it doesn’t end there, because the Halloween Horror Night, which is currently running at the park, will creep its way to the New Year’s countdown party as well with the likes of the zombie dance event, in addition to the Universal Crystal Christmas event which has received a new theme this year.

     

    There are only a limited number of tickets and no more will be released once they’re all gone, so if you’re in Japan for the New Year then make sure you’ve got yours booked!

  • Universal Studios Japan Scales Up Halloween Events For 2019

    06.September.2019 | SPOT

    The ever-popular Universal Surprise Halloween event is set to return again this year to Universal Studios Japan and will run from September 6 to November 4.

    The event is set to be bigger than ever this year, with more attractions than ever before, as well as the event’s three main elements―Zekkyo Halloween, Otana Halloween, and Kowa Kawa Halloween―making use of the entire park. Look forward to a unique and spooky Halloween experience the very second you enter the park.

     

    Zekkyo Halloween

    Three main events run every year during Universal Surprise Halloween. The first of these we are taking a look at is Zekkyo (“Screaming”) Halloween, which plunges guests into terrifying experiences, the kind of scream-inducing encounters you conjure up in your imagination at Halloween.

     

    As part of Zekkyo Halloween, just some of the exciting and hair-raising attractions include the brand new horror maze which will see you running for your life through its twists and turns, the return of the extremely popular zombie dance show, a survival horror maze based off the Resident Evil game series, and much, much more.

     

    Otona Halloween

    Otona (“Adult”) Halloween is a more sophisticated kind of Halloween experience aimed at adults, clad with glamour and fashion, but certainly not free of scares.

     

    Halloween 2019 sees the return of the interactive theatre event Hotel Albert in a brand-new sequel, Hotel Albert 2: Requiem. We covered last year’s here, but in summary, it’s an immersive theatre experience in which guests act as participants in the play. Guests walked around the attraction as characters in the story and experienced a beautifully haunting tale unfold before them. What secrets does the sequel hold? You’ll have to attend to find out!

     

    A new horror restaurant, named Park Side Grill ~Cursed Banquet Of Roses~, will serve up magnificent meals while imbuing a sense of uncanny in its diners.

     

    Kowa Kawa Halloween

    Of course, it’s not all doom and gloom at Universal Surprise Halloween. Children will get to enjoy Kowa Kawa (“Creepy-Cute”) Halloween again this year in all its Halloween trickery. Minions and the Sesame Street cast will be present and dressed in mischievous costumes. The incredible Festa de Parade will run the street, and kids will be able to catch falling candy at Happy Trick Or Treat where it will rain down like a waterfall.

     

    USJ is a spearhead in Japan’s Halloween culture, so if you’re there for the spooky season, make sure you don’t miss out.
