  • Awesome theme park with stunning Mount Fuji as a backdrop. One of the big rollercoasters was closed when we went but the others more than made up for it. Featuring some world-record breaking rollercoa...  more »

  • Firstly, try to go on a not-so-busy day, as I hear the lines can get incredibly long. I went on a summer Tuesday, where it clearly wasn't the busiest but lines for the big four coasters still exceeded...  more »

  • Best amusement park hands down. Maybe not in terms of themes given it only had Thomas the tank engine town but no matter! Had three main roller coasters including the highest circuit roller coaster about twenty years ago. Had a variety of things including a Ferris wheel which allowed me to take some nice photos of Mt Fuji. Another main thing was the relatively emptiness of the place allowed for short queue times including me going solo on the lodge! My favourite part was making the mistake of only buying a entry ticket and asking for a day pass and the lady letting me do that and charging me the difference!
  • Awesome rides. Long lines but worth the wait. Better to buy a 3-ride ticket.
  • If you like roller coasters, thrill rides, odd takes on American foods, anime, and a healthy dose of Japanese weirdness, then this is the (slightly run down) park for you. At around $50 admission, it is a better deal than most theme parks and you get to ride in site of Mt. Fuji on a nice day.
  • Went on a weekday that was relatively quiet. Lines were short in the afternoon. Could go on rides multiple times without having the express pass. Haunted house was super cool.
  • Great place. We had a lot of fun although it was cold and the rides are just amazing. Will definitely go back there (many times). They don't have a lot of variety of food and rides sometimes close earlier than what it is shown because of waiting line
