Another Reason To Visit Japan
My favorite part of Universal Studios (in Orlando) is going to the Harry Potter areas. If you’ve been there, you’ll know that they aren’t just rides – you can immerse yourself in the world and the atmosphere of the place in a way that nowhere else in the park can even come close.
And now, there’s comparable investment being made into a Nintendo area of Universal Studios in Japan. To say that I have high hopes and excitement would be an understatement.
You can count on me visiting and reporting on my experiences once the park is complete and open to the public. For now, here is what we know:
Japanese publication Sankei Shinbun recently revealed that the park is expected to be completed and open for business by the summer olympics of 2020, which will be hosted in Tokyo. While there’s still no word exactly on what can be expected to be showcased in the park itself, Universal Studios of Japan noted that it’s investing over $500 million into the project. For comparison, the Harry Potter area of the park cost around $400 million. An official announcement on the park is expected sometime before the end of the year, hopefully it’ll live up to the expectations.
