Universal Studios Osaka

I couldn't resist joining my friends who wanted to visit and explore The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Japan (USJ).

Amusement parks, they're not my cup of tea. I just don't enjoy rides now compared to my teenage years. Those extreme physical rides activate my motion sickness which sometimes lead to nakakalokang migraine. Before leaving the hotel, I had to rush back to our room just to get my banig of bonamine. Very lolas of Manila di ba. Hehe.

Our first ride was Jaws.

Photos/Videos weren't allowed (even if we had a GoPro) but Mr. Sneaky AKA Jamie got some clips together with the shark. Hehe.

That was us freezing and waiting in line for the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™ ride. USJ Tip: They give a timed entry ticket to control the number of people inside The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. So make sure you get one right after entering USJ.

Believe it or not we had to wait almost 2 hours to experience the 5-min. ride. Nakakaloka na parang all year round Halloween sa USJ. Check out our selfie with the Power Rangers! Minus si Pink Ranger coz nagutom na ata siya kakaantay at kumain muna saglit. Haha.

After the ride, Jamie and I felt a little bit sick so we went straight to Mel's Drive-In to rest and grab some brunch. Meanwhile back in Hogsmeade, here's Jay enjoying his butterbeer and Faye channeling her inner Cho Chang. Hindi naman halatang fans sila ng Harry Potter no? Hehe.

After our super duper late lunch we had more time to roam around the grounds of USJ. By this time though, it was getting colder. Hindi lang halata but super lamig nung time na yan. I partially blame the wind for adding that chill factor. Hindi kasi ako nag layering tapos naka skirt pa ako. Hahaha.

This was our last group pic before Jamie and I left and went back to our hotel.

Ang tibay nitong dalawa na 'to. Isa sila sa mga nagsara ng USJ. Sulit na sulit yung bayad nila. Hehehe.

What a fun day to bond with my best friends. ;) Anyway, I still haven't figured out how to get those express tickets online but if you know how drop me an email so we can share it to others! ;)
