“Fun but waiting for Thunder Dolphin to reopen”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

The kids had a good time in this vibrant spot. Magi Quest is an amazing place but the kids should have at least some Japanese Language abilities to enjoy it. Thunder Dolphin has still not reopened since the earthquake. It is/was an amazingly smooth ride and we miss it.

“This is "the future"”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

When I brought my friends here, they realized the futuristicness of Japan. Not only can you see shows and sports games here, there is an amusement park (with a roller coaster going through a hole in a building), good food (Moomin cafe and a buffet restaurant), and shopping. It looks beautiful at night also, and it's near Ueno and Tokyo University if you want to hit up that area in one go.

“Fun For Everyone”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The Tokyo Dome is an architectural wonder, seating 55,000 people and being the only done in the world with a membrane top that is held up with air pressure. I didn't get a chance to go inside (and I didn't see any tours to do so), but just seeing it was pretty cool.

Tokyo Dome City is like a mini amusement park right around the corner! There are a few rides but my favorite were the "Big O" (a center-less fares wheel with a great view), and the "Thunder Dolphin" (a mild roller coaster that goes through the "Big O's" center), I highly recommend both rides. You can buy an all day pass or individual ride passes at easy to use kisko's.

Also on site is LaQua, a mini strip mall where you can eat, take a break from the day, and play in the arcade (which had an ice cream claw machine when I went).

Be sure to bring your camera, some comfy shoes, and around $40 in yen per person if you plan to play around. Just as a side note when I went it it seemed rather windy so avoid flirty skirts. I easily spent my morning there just playing around and exploring. It wasn't very crowded, and even though I spoke zero Japanese (except thank you & hello), the staff was VERY friendly and happy to help.
