Tokyo Dome City Attractions is one of the most popular amusement parks in Tokyo. It’s located right by the stadium, Tokyo Dome, and part of the larger shopping and leisure complex, Tokyo Dome City. The rides aren’t the most extreme, but there are still reasonable thrills to be had, and the location is ideal for a short day trip within the city.
Tokyo Dome City Attractions highlights
For adrenaline chasers, Thunder Dolphin is Tokyo Dome’s largest and fastest ride. It arcs over and through the Tokyo Dome buildings-galloping through the center of the Big-O ferris wheel at over 130km/h is sure to get your heart pounding.
On warmer days, Wonder Drop is the attraction to cool off with. Feel the tension as the ride slowly ticks up the slope before screaming your way down the dive into the large pool of water in the main plaza.
If you’re more about taking it slow, enjoy the views of Tokyo from the Big O ferris wheel. With Tokyo Dome’s central location, you’ll have great views of Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Tower, and across the bay. It’s a brilliant spot for some holiday snaps with landmark backdrops.
What’s on offer for children?
And for families with children, Tokyo Dome offers a plethora of options for tiny hands, and there’s something for all ages. The Gan Gun Battlers is an arcade-style cart ride where families battle for points by shooting monsters in 3D. That’ll be sure to get some screams! And get a taste of the road by collecting coins in the Furi Furi Grand Prix, where a parent and child drive together trying to get the most points.
If rides aren’t for your child yet, or the weather turns torrid, not a problem! Head inside to the ASOBono play area. Built for babies and toddlers, you can lose yourself in everything from ball pits to trampolines.
I’m more hands on, is there anything for me?
If you’re the sporty type, the Dome has all sorts of physical activities to get your blood pumping. Have a relaxed bowling game with some friends, vent some frustration in a batting cage, or even push yourself with some bouldering in the indoor sports facility.
When all that excitement has you tired out, you can take a seat in the Theatre G Rosso and enjoy the Hero Action Show, a superhero stage show with action and comedy that’ll have everyone on the edge of their seats. Note that the performance is only in Japanese, so following along may be a bit difficult, but the stunts and slapstick may be more than enough to cover that for you.
Tickets and Admission
It’s free to enter the park, but you pay for each ride you go on. For day pass prices, you’re lookin at paying ¥4,200 for adults, which is a good deal if you plan on going on the bigger rides. They also have night passes for after 5 p.m., Five Ride tickets (good for any five rides you want), individual attraction tickets and “skip passes” that allow you to skip the queue. You can choose and customize what you get to best suit your needs when you visit.
You can get to Tokyo Dome with a short walk frm either Suidobashi Station on the JR Chūō Sobu line or Toei Mita Subway Line, as well as Korakuen on the Marunouchi Subway line. Suidobashi is a local station on the JR Chūō Sobu line, so while it is accesible, the two subway lines might give you more flexibility. The Marunouchi line, in particular, stops and interesects with major transport hubs such as Ikebukuro and Shinjuku. Note that all three stations are wheelchair accessible from platform to exit, so no need to factor that in when deciding where to go!
