Like everyone, had expected games and heaps of fun at an advanced entertainment arcade but came away disappointed. With exception of a few mini arcade rides that were probably left over from the original SEGA (think universal studios ride on a mini scale), the other...More

If you really want to visit this place, don't buy a day pass. Just pay for the entry fee and pay for the ride that attracts you. Some Joypolis were closed down in the other cities.

Fantastic wet day entertainment for teenagers. Even parents enjoyed it. Great indoor roller coaster. Don't bother getting stamp card to win iPad. .....just a waste of time. Enjoyed surrounding shops and navigating train system. Japanese locals happy to help if you get stuck.
