Space World to close after the 2017 season

Recommended Posts

I feel like I like this park "sentimentally" a bit more so than I did when I visited (no, not just because it closed). It felt like a B+ park in comparison to some of the other places in Japan--of course there's Disney, but my favorite comparable park to Space World is easily Mitsui Greenland. But, man, I have some fond memories from my two stops there, and it's a shame to see such a fun, quirky park go the way of the dodo.

FYI Aeon Mall (a large mall company in Japan) has bought/leased the Space World lot and as soon as rides are removed they will start work on a large shopping/dining/cultural complex expected to be completed in 2021. Hoping that 'removed' means relocated!

Ok, so there was actually someone RIDING on that train:




Ah, the one ride that got away when I visited Space World on a "rain out" day in 2015. I hope it finds a home at another park with the giant rocket backdrop.

^^ That's wonderful news! Rusutsu is a great looking resort/park,

beautiful location, and with it's own "Mt.Fuji," too!


Wonder where they'll put it?
