1) The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, this is a 4K3D ride. It's like a MUST-RIDE thing in USJ. Soar across the vast sky above Hogwarts at high speeds and experience the intensity of the thrilling immersive realism as the Golden Snitch races by as if within arm’s reach. This unrivaled awe-inspiring attraction and its magical journey full of thrills and excitement is sure to be unforgettable.

2) The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man

This is another 4K3D ride, brings you through the fight of Spider-Man with the bad guy, and experiencing how Spider-Man spurt and fly across building to building. It takes approximately 5 minutes.

3) The Flying Dinosaur

The flying coaster that swing you 360 degrees through the world of Jurassic Park, and this is so far, the best flying coaster I have ever play before! An out-of-control Pteranodon will seize you from behind and pull you high into the sky, with nothing but air space between you and the ground! 

4) Jurassic Park – The Ride

Prepare to be wet! Explore Jurassic Park thickly covered with tropical trees. This is an impressive river tour to encounter dinosaurs roaming around the land and witness the wonders of the science which brought back dinosaurs to life. But a raging T. Rex is waiting. You're in a desperate situation and to escape from the attacking T. Rex, the boat takes a 25.9 meter drop!


A boat tour at a peaceful port town with a relaxed air. It starts out in a friendly mood, but suddenly a gigantic, man-eating shark appears, throwing everyone into the depth of fear. Rifles and wall of fire are no match to this unimaginably huge body. With its humongous mouth and sharp teeth, it can even bite a hole in the bottom of a ship. Will you be able to find the chance and escape from the repeatedly attacking shark safely?!

After all the thrilling and exhilarating rides, now you should come to the kiddy relaxing zone. The sesame street yay!
