Tokyo Joypolis information
This indoor amusement park has three storeys of virtual reality attractions and action rides. Popular big-kid attractions include the Spin Bullet, an indoor spinning roller coaster, and the snowboard-like, video-enhanced Halfpipe Canyon; there are rides for little ones, too. At the time of research, Joypolis was closed for renovation, but planned to re-open with more high-tech attractions.Separate admission and individual ride tickets (most from ¥500) are available, but if you plan to go on more than a half-dozen attractions the unlimited ‘passport’ makes sense.
