We were very confused when we arrived at Space World at 11am as it appeared that none of the rides were running and there were very few people around. However, when we got inside we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of rides and the scariness of them - and most importantly there were barely any queues whatsoever! We are unsure whether it is usually this quiet or whether this day was an exception, but it is a very fun day out and reasonable price for the amount of rides you can go on. We travelled from Fukuoka and it is easy to find as it has its own train station.

We visited one day when it was a little cold and some patchy rain. Hence there were not many people there that day. Some of the rides were not open at first due to the weather, but as time went on and the weather cleared these rides were opened up. Some of the rides are super fast and a little scary, but sooo much fun!!! We went with three daughters aging from 27 to 14. They enjoyed the rides immensely. As there were not many people that day we did not have to wait in line for any rides and you could do them as many times as you wanted. Such a great day out for us and the "big kids".

This is worth visiting if you enjoy amusement parks, roller coasters etc. We also went to Tokyo Disney and liked Space world better. It is less crowded, cheaper and with its own train station access is excellent. Make sure you check times as it is not always open in winter. Also if you have time the Kyushu railway Museum is not to far, you can catch a train from space world station and the museum is at the end of the line.

We i was in Japan on a Business trip i got an opportunity to Visit Space World, Its very amazing for me to see a wonderful amusement park, Initially i thought it would be a boring trip, but once i entered there all things totally changed. Who ever want to enjoy the thrills need to visit here At least once. The 4D cinema theater was the highlight among all the amusements. the roller coasters take you to the space itself by its Height and when riding in Frisk wheel you will get an Amazing view of the whole city, which cant be seen anywhere. Really a Beautiful treat to the eyes.
Fortunately I Got a chance to have fun there. Every one at least once make a trip to enjoy the real Amusement Park.
