Here are some of the rides and experiences at Tokyo Dome City Attractions!
Thunder Dolphin Rollercoaster
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU: Star Wars Comes to the ArtScience Museum
The signature ride at Tokyo Dome City Attractions is the Thunder Dolphin. This bright yellow rollercoaster zips around the tracks at a maximum speed of 130 km/h. The maximum drop on this Tokyo Dome City Rollercoaster is 80 degrees – just 10 degrees short being a straight vertical drop.
However, its signature move is when it flies through the LaQua building. That’s not its only trick. It also plunges through the centre of Tokyo Dome City Attractions’ Ferris Wheel – just like a dolphin jumping through a hoop.
Definitely one for thrill seekers.
Thrill seekers in a hurry may also wish to take note that there is a Thunder Dolphin Skip Pass – sort of a fast pass to skip the queue and get on the ride.
Big O Ferris Wheel
The Big O Ferris Wheel is another way to get a great view at Tokyo Dome City Attractions.
This is the world’s first hubless Ferris Wheel. It takes around 15 minutes to complete a revolution on the Big O, during which time, you can experience the buzz of the Thunder Dolphin going past.
Big O even has e cabins that are fitted out with karaoke systems. You can try to see how many songs you can sing in a round.
Ready to make a splash? Try Wonder Drop, Tokyo Dome City Attractions’ water flume ride. Take a dive from the height of three floors to the pool below. You will get wet!
Those aged six and up can experience a haunted house set in a traditional Japanese house. Those who dare to step inside will stumble upon the tragedy that has be fallen a couple.
