First of all, I’d like to inform that because of the park’s popularity, every rides has unbelievably looong queue, especially popular ones and your waiting time could be over 200 minutes.. But there are always some ways to avoid from waiting in a long queue! Here, I’d like to suggest you two tips 😉

First one is using an Express Pass, which can be purchased with your ticket. Using Express Pass, your waiting time could be reduced to 20~30 mins.
