    I just remember that Fast & Furious Supercharged could have a overlay of Lupin the Third.

    What are those dark horizontal lines in the design beneath the green?

    Looks like slots to install the 'floating' steps/blocks seen in the artwork and model:

    A look into USJ at the tail end of their summer version of cool japan. I think for me the stand out of this years event was the Lupin the 3rd retheme of space fantasy. Also I happened to be there on the day that all of Japan forgot that USJ existed with walk ons for everything!

    I missed your videos!

    Still need to get out to USJ. With all the annual events they have and temporary attractions, what would you say is the best time of year to go? Most of the IPs for these are totally lost on me but a good attraction is a good attraction.

    :thumbsup::toast: As always, thank you very much for your coverage of a park we don't often see videos or photos of. ....Probably the first video I've seen that the park was not jam packed with visitors. Interesting take.

    I still believe that their best event is Halloween horror nights. It’s got the prefect blend of cutesy stuff including an unpredictable “cosplay” like setting and then pure horror. Also the changed attractions are worth the cost of admission.
    But I’m still around but covering the equally undercovered Disneysea now. But I can barely seem to get people interested in those.

    2 years late on this one.. But Universal Studios Japan had a parade called REBORN! That ran from 2016-2017 (Maybe even 2015, not sure) It was a HUGE hit with the Japanese fans. Found this video of the final show~ It actually got rained out so the performers came out and said goodbye instead. Pretty cool

    The land the Nishin Steel plant is on (next to SNW) has been reclassified as for 'urban function' Not entirely sure what that means but could be a sign of future expansion?
    @quinnmac000 do you know anything about it?

    Green = Universal Studios Japan
    Red = Nishin Steel Plant

    Give me about 20 minutes and I can find out...but it looks like the city may have reclaimed this land.

    Yea, don't think this is necessarily a USJ expansion but my intuition was correct about it being claimed by the city.

    For those who are going to head to Japan for the upcoming Super Nintendo world opening this might help you in conquering USJ.

    Horror nights starts in Japan on Sept 7th at 9am in the morning, some of the houses open at 10 am. This event is a bit different than the rest of the Hhn’s as it’s Japan. Three years ago they did this experience where the military blocked off an area, warned that a zombie swarm was coming told everyone that could to get into the containment area. Zombies then invaded that gated containment area, and the only solution was to throw a gernade. Blasting the trapped guests with petroleum jelly. It was sticky, scary, and strange but awesome. Attached is the pov of that experience.

    First: USJ is Universal's most attended park by a landslide per Tom Willams...while Universal Orlando has more total visitors.

    additionally Looks like Universal is planning their second park

    a look at the scarezone “the garden of the cursed rose” and what separates it from any other scarezone Universal has made.
