The only remaining stand-alone Jaws attraction left, you can take a boat tour on Captain Jake's Amity Boat Tours on Amity's 4th of July Celebration. But alas, things go horribly wrong as your boat tour turns into a shark attack. Will you survive?

Rob McCullough
If you were a fan of Captain Jake's Amity Boat Tours in Orlando, know that the ride is alive and well and living in Osaka. It is a bit odd to pull away from the dock and look ahead only to see the spires of Hogwart's castle looming above the old New England style church across the bay, but's a movie studio and sight lines are going to clash from time to time. Beyond that, everything was remarkable. The spiel is done completely in Japanese, except for that shout of success, "We're coming home!" Our skipper had high energy and hit all of her cues. The show quality was outstanding. The sharks all looked great and the other effects like steam, and fire were all 100%. It was a real treat, and is reason enough for a visit to USJ.
