USJ Makes List of Asia’s Most-Visited Tourist Sites

Hooray, former-employer!

(via msnbc.com)
"Amusement parks make a strong showing on the Forbes Traveler list of Eastern Asia’s most visited tourist attractions. From Universal Studios’ outpost in Osaka, Japan, to the Happy Valley theme park in Shenzhen, China, roller coasters and fantasy-themed lands draw millions annually."
According to this site, they came in at #6:
"This Osaka outpost of the Universal Studios theme parks welcomed 11 million visitors in its first year of operation (2001). In 2007 the movie theme park, home to Snoopy’s Sound Stage Adventure and Hollywood Dream: The Ride, was visited by about 8.7 million people."
Take that, Forbidden City!

(Course, Tokyo Disney totally kicked our ass.)
