U park draws 10 mil

World Brief

Universal Studios Japan theme park passed the 10 million visitor mark Sunday, just 11 months after opening, beating Tokyo Disneyland’s 1984 record of 9,933,000 visitors in its first year.

USJ passed its target of 8 million visitors during the first year. Initial fears that the spillover effect of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. might dampen enthusiasm for the park have proved unfounded.

As analysts point out, fewer Japanese have traveled overseas since last fall, opting for domestic attractions instead.
