    I would like to comment, I absolutely adore the ride car design.

    I hope there is more pictures of it, as I would love to see that in the full.

    Also of note, they added commentary by Levi from Attack on Titan to Hollywood Dream as well as Shin Godzilla soundtrack and other special tracks. They may have added more narrations of characters to Hollywood dream as well but those two have been confirmed

    Is there really a new ride vehicle for Minions in USJ? Or is this just another Supercharged situation?

    Minion ride vehicle looks like a redressed BTTF car to me, like they did here for Simpsons.

    That would make sense. I wonder how their capacity will compare then as they'll definitely need it.

    On April 21, 2017 (Friday), just before the Golden week holidays, a large scaled night show, will debut in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™. Guests will be immersed in J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World as the students of Hogwarts™ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry fight off Dementors who descend across the Black Lake for an unforgettable show that'll leave fans surprised and excited. On the same day, guests can experience new Wand Magic in Hogsmeade™ village.
    In 2017, Universal Studios Japan® will offer a dazzling array of new attractions and entertainment that push the limits to bring more excitement than ever before for the 15th anniversary of Universal Studios Japan®.

    The night show in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ will use magnificent projection mapping to bring the magic and wonder of Harry Potter™ to life in a way never before seen at Universal Studios Japan®. The immersive show, that will leave fans in awe, unfolds above the Black Lake with Hogwarts™ castle serving as the backdrop and focal point. The incredible technology will brilliantly light up the night sky as Dementors fly ominously along the castle.
    The world of magic comes to life as never seen before. This immersive experience will make fans young and old tingle with excitement.


    Cast spells like the characters in the movie with new Wand Magic locations

    Opening on the same day as the night show, are new Wand Magic locations where guests can experience the joy of casting spells. Following the Magical Wand Map, guests can practice their magic throughout the land from the moment they encounter the Hogwarts™ Express conductor to when they approach Hogwarts™ castle. Wand Assistants are on hand to assist new witches and wizards as they try new spells.

    And Universal just continues to improve this park, and reward it for it's excellent attendance (and profit).

    Also today marks the opening of dragon quest attraction which had its early premiere last night. Through use of projection mapping, AAs, blow ups (because you actually hit things) and giving you physical weapons to fight, early reactions were great.

    Movie theme park Universal Studios Japan in Osaka attracted a record number of visitors in fiscal 2016, with new attractions based on Japanese animation "One Piece" and the "Jurassic Park" film series the main draw, operator USJ Co. said Friday.

    The company is projecting total visitors to the amusement park on Osaka's seafront at 14.50 million in the current business year ending this month, topping the previous record of 13.90 million visitors in fiscal 2015 and setting a new high for the third consecutive year.

    Shows based on smash-hit manga series "One Piece," which started in July, and a roller coaster associated with the "Jurassic Park" movie series that began operating in March 2016 proved popular, it said.

    USJ also attributed the rise in visitors to commemorative events last summer to mark the 15th anniversary of the theme park's opening.

    A time-limited attraction based on the role-playing video game "Dragon Quest" also started Friday, with visitors able to battle monsters using weapons from the game.

    A new area featuring Nintendo Co. video game characters will open by around 2020. Tokuhei Murata, an executive officer of USJ, said the operator hopes to increase the number of visitors by 2 million to 3 million through this and other projects.
