If you like roller coasters, you will really enjoy this theme park. There are 4 main coasters and they are all great. Two of the roller coasters, Eejanaika and Takabisha, really made me nauseous! It's the first time in my life I ever "met my match" in roller coasters. We went on a weekday in December, between Christmas and New Years, and the longest wait we had was only 1 hour (though for most rides it was only a 25 minute wait). It is important to be aware that most of the rides are not wheelchair accessible and people who use wheelchairs use crutches, or have a broken arm, are not permitted on the coasters or major thrill rides. I had a bad ankle, so we rented a wheelchair and just left it by the ride entrances so I could go on the rides. The park is not very large, but the four roller coasters are fun. To avoid looooooong lines, try to go in the winter and/or avoid school breaks and weekends in August.
Here are some tips:
- Double check the website to make sure the park will be open. It is open most days of the year, but check the calendar to be sure.
- Arrive early (we got to the park at 9:00 am for a 9:30 am opening, and already there was a long line to get in and buy tickets).
- Bundle up! But be aware that you will have to take off your hats and scarves for thrill rides (so your ears will be cold!). We took hand warmers and that helped keep us warm. We didn't get cold until around 4:00 pm, when the sun began to set.
- There is a bus stop and cafe next to the hotel and near the park's entrance, so it is easy to get to and from the park.
- There are lockers if you need to deposit large bags or suitcases for the day.
- You can get an English map at the park entrance. You can also rent a wheelchair there (500 yen for the day plus a 500 yen refundable deposit).
- The crepes are not made fresh and not very good!
