The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened at Universal Studios Japan on July 15, 2014. On May 21, 2015, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey was transformed into 3D format.


I am unable to provide an actual score for Forbidden Journey because USJ has not installed "Big Boy" seats. However, as I've ridden the attraction dozens of times at IOA, I feel comfortable giving it the same score I gave the original. I was disappointed that I couldn't ride, because I was very interested in seeing what a difference the new 3-D upgrade has made. I never thought the 2-D film was all that bad, so I hope the upgrade has made it even better. Just wonder how well the glasses stay on based on the motion of the ride.
