I was excited to go universal studio in Japan. I was there only 10min after opening time, found loads of people already waiting there. It tooks almost an hour for me to get the admission ticket. When I got inside, I saw people everywhere, the least waiting time is 45min for the 4D shrek movie. So I was queuing and only realized I didn't have the 4D glass when we already inside, and the door was closed. Oh well, I have to see the double image. It ruined half of the fun. After that, I walked to the entrance of the spideman ride. Holly crap, the waiting time is 170min. That means almost 3hours. I was shocked and walked away. Everywhere else, at least you have to wait for 70-80mins to go for the ride or watch the 3D. It's not the weekend, but all packed.
I walked passed the Hollywood dream ride several times, didn't know where the entrance was. When I found the entrance, the waiting time and the steep diving spot always make me hesitate. I thought lots of kids and mid aged adults can do it, why can't I. I am a normal person who have no heart dease or any symptom fall within those warning criteria. I really wanted to try, so I starved myself in case I'll throw up after the ride. I've only drinked some Fanta and was almost fainted in the slowly moving queue. Everytime, I felt a bit dizzy, I looked at the scary spot, it sort of helped to wake me up. Finally it's my turn. I was excited. When I hopped in, I realized that safety bar is quite low. It's good that you can choose the music accompany with you during the ride, which reduce some kind of tension. I did yell out because I thought that most scary dramatical diving spot is the last one during the ride, but I was wrong, it was the first one. But after a couple of ups and downs, I felt it wasn't that scary as what it looked like. I felt like I 'll go for another ride if I don't need to wait that long.
