Went on a very sunny day. Was tiring till 3 pm . Completed zoo first. Then went for rides. Very special rides for kids. Many rides for big ones too. Especially the roller coaster.

I visited Tobu zoo and it's accompanying theme park with some friends in September 2015. It's a nice enough park, plenty to do, don't miss Kawasemi and Regina! Some nice views over the lake are available too. I didn't see much of the zoo itself...More

The theme park is fantastic, there are some very good rides. The best ride is the Intamin Megalite coaster. The Zoo is disappointing. Most of the animals look very thin. Some of the animals are in tiny cages and chained.

Vastly exceed our expectations. We visited on a Saturday which happened to be the first day of Golden Week 2015. The park was full enough that there was a fun vibe but it was still possible to find tables to eat at and the lines...More

I went there with my wife in January, 2014. We tried wooden roller coaster there. It was definitely a good roller coaster. Animals are also interesting to see.

Simply one of the best, not focusing on just thrill factor, Tobu zoo is both fun in the theme park and zoo sector, park has a couple of fun rides and even beautiful pathway for strolling, Zoo is very interactive and opened concept, can see...More
