We visited in November 2017 at night after trying the ferris wheel ride on top of Hep Five mall. There were numerous games, but we enjoyed the Umeda Joypolis wild river ride.

Do not go there as this SEGA Game Centre has been closed since early May. Tripadviser may consider to remove this attraction from the top spot list. 世嘉梅田遊戲中心從五月初已經閉館了,剛剛上週去吃了閉門羹,只好坐摩天輪吧!請看看可否從大阪景點移除吧!以免白走一趟,失望而回。

We did the wild river ride and did enjoy it, but waited for about 30 minutes. The ride itself was about 10 minutes and cost 600 yen or is free with Osaka amazing pass. Good way to kill time or for a rainy/cold day, but...More
