Urban Legends in Japan
1. The species of trees around the Jurassic Park area are over 200 million years old (the 'metasequoia' plant).
2. Groups of students from Kobe University are watched carefully by staff and security due to being the highest-cause of delinquency out of all the visitors to the park.
3. There are rumours that the boundaries of each area incorporate the sound of water or a high-pitched ringing. This is to help visitors separate the experiences of each area by an audio cleanse.
4. The cost of maintaining the attractions is very high. It is rumoured that because of the steep maintenance costs, the rides often experience break downs or emergency stops in order to save money.
5. Universal Studios Japan (USJ) and Tokyo Disneyland have an ongoing feud in regards to the large globe outside the USJ gates. Disneyland asked USJ to remove it, but the request was ignored. USJ also has many hidden tributes to Disney throughout rides where 'attacked' or 'dead' character props are named after Disney characters (particularly on the Jurassic Park ride where 'Mickey' can be spotted on the name tag of a torn-up costume).
6. In the Backdraft studio, it is said a woman's screams can sometimes be heard as the fire and explosions erupt across the room despite there being no voice recordings of a screaming woman within the attraction.
7. The land in which USJ was built was famous for being a suicide spot. The feelings of despair, conflict, and anxiety are said to spike when approaching the entrance, and there are rumours of spirits being seen around the amusement park (particularly within dark rides).
