Universal Studios Japan: Halloween Horror Nights.
We timed our trip to coincide Halloween to see what goes on there. USJ’s theme is The Ring, although they had a Biohazard too, and they had an attraction for it. Tickets were already sold out at around 9 or 10A.M. Tough luck. For those who want to get tickets to their special attraction, you gotta line up way, way, way early in the morning. The Japanese are willing to do that.
Anyway, Halloween day was fun. In the JAWS ride, there were Japanese dressed up as Superman, Batman, and Spiderman in our boat. They made the boring ride fun by overreacting to special effects and cheering on the boat navigator. People were dressed up as all sorts of familiar characters.
At night, they change their rides to The Ring style. Sometimes Sadako would be standing at the corner while you wait in line. And in line, the TV shows something then turns to noise and shows the infamous video of her by the well.
Strolling around the theme park are walking zombies, sometimes a horde that would “attack” visitors. They try their best to scare the visitors. Fun times! Although I enjoyed the one in California more.
