Re-Boooooooorn at USJ

USJ Re-boooooooorn Parade

Universal Studio Japan theme this year is Re-Boooooooorn (eight-o’s)! It is celebrated all day around USJ. Take your lunch early and catch the Universal Re-Boooooooorn party at noon. This is a huge outdoor variety show featuring Universal Studio Japan characters such as Snoopy, Hello Kitty, the Minions, and others.


Universal Re-boooooooorn Party


Universal Re-boooooooorn Parade

Go check out some rides and catch the Universal Re-boooooooorn Parade. This is a carnival style parade where in the crowd are invited to take part in the street dancing. Elmo even launched a bubble cannon that got my camera wet. But I’ve learned that cameras are actually water resistant so it’s fine. Here are some photos.


Universal Re-boooooooorn Market

Enjoy extraordinary food cards at the Universal Re-boooooooorn Market. Check out the BBQ Turkey Leg and get the chance to upsize your already big turkey leg to even bigger one by spinning that wheel.


Jurassic Park – The Flying Dinosaur

Never say no to adrenaline rush. So when they asked if we wanna try the Flying Dinosaur, the newest longest flying roller coaster, the answer was obvious. I’ve bungee jumped and sky dived and a dedicated #adrenaline tag on my blog. If you’re not the roller coaster riding type, then you just skip this ride. But,

If you’ve ridden roller coasters before and still deciding whether you want to do it or not, I say, go for it! The Flying Dinosaur is not as scary as it looks. You are strapped to your seat so securely you hardly move at all. And the view from the top is absolutely fantastic.
