Tokyo Dome City
(known as Korakuen Park and LaQua Amusement Park)
Downtown Tokyo has its own amusement park located adjacent to the Tokyo Dome, a large baseball stadium. The park was called Korakuen Amusement Park from 1958 to 2002, but later became known as LaQua Amusement Park (pronounced "La-CUE-ah"). These days, it is referred to as Tokyo Dome City, and it may be small but it contains many unique attractions. A 260-foot tall coaster named Thunder Dolphin from Intamin opened in 2003. Its track passes over a large office building and through the center of the world's first hubless, spokeless Ferris Wheel. The wheel was also built by Intamin. I recently visited here, so check back to see pictures of this ride in action!
Six coasters have left the park:
