What is Universal's most popular theme park? If you said Universal Studios Florida or Islands of Adventure, you're wrong. While Universal Orlando might be the headquarters of Universal Parks and Resorts and Universal Creative, the chain's most-visited theme park lies half a world away, in Osaka, Japan.
While Universal Studios Japan welcomed 14.5 million visitors last year, making it the world's fourth-most-visited theme park, Universal Studios Singapore attracted the fewest number of visitors in the Universal chain, with "just" 4.1 million visitors. Singapore is also Universal's smallest park, physically, sitting on just 49 acres in the Resorts World Sentosa development.
But that doesn't mean Singapore's Universal park lacks attractions. It offers what might be Universal's best installation of Revenge of the Mummy, as well as the original Transformers ride and entire lands devoted to Shrek and Madagascar. Yet the Osaka park counters with a Wizarding World of Harry Potter and a Jaws ride, just to drive Universal Orlando fans deeper into jealousy.
I don't think you can go wrong with either of these parks, but I'm still going to make you choose. We invite you to read more about these parks on their Theme Park Insider listing pages. As always, your ratings and reviews of these parks' attractions on their listing pages are encouraged and welcomed.
