Bought the one day pass from KKday, no need to wait and convenient. the employee are very friendly. some of measurement need the understanding of Japanese. but some of the employee can speak English . and some measurement provides the Chinese instruction at front entrance. Eating is also convenient. There is a Mcdonald in the campus,also a dining cafeteria sells Raman & Curry rice.

This is a perfect place to visit if you have children and for your-self. There are many activities and rides for you to do and enjoy. Although the fun park is old it is still enjoyable. They have some great places to sit and eat / drink or just rest and relax. They have great facilities around the park and are very clean. I went with a number of school children to use the snow park and although it was more like shaved ice the children had a great time building and sliding and just being silly. Inside also they have a very small zoo (if you can call it that). The staff are very curtious and extremely helpful. All information and maps are clear and easy to follow. Just be-aware that it is a destination for schools as a school trip so it can get very crowded with children. the car park is at the highest point of the park so when you are leaving it is a bit of a hike up. Still a great day out

You want to go theme park but can’t effort USJ, I would recommend here! There’s not much rides there and most are very childish as the park its own is very old. You must try riding roller coaster, disco and Ferris wheel! I won’t recommend buying a free pass! Just buy the entrance ticket advance on their website!It’s much cheaper than buying at the entranceThere is also a small zoo, one free and one charged! There’s also a rose garden, recommend to go there at the rose garden season! There are food stall but pricey for me! It’s better to bring your own one, if you’re strict to budget and a big eater

This part gets four stars: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Hirakata Park has been a haven for families with children in the area for quite some time. There are plenty of rides and activities oriented toward children and their parents. Adults will like the “Flower Illumination” that begins in late October as well as the rose 🥀 garden that is in bloom just around the same time. There’s also plenty of comfort food or simple barbecued 🍗 foods and fried stuff that is pretty good. This part gets just one star: ⭐️ (or less) The big downside is the odd petting zoo and animal exhibit. During the day all of the animals seemed stressed by the constant flow of people, especially the smaller animals and the dogs 🐶 , who never seemed to get much rest during the day. The owls 🦉 and African Grey parrot looked absolutely miserable. Based on my experiences with other Japanese zoo-type places this place should close. It’s disturbing on many levels. The rest of the park is fully suited for people. Give the animals peace and they need a proper, quiet home.

The park have rides for small kids and older one. Seems more fun than Legoland. Went on Monday, most rides queue is about 20-30min. The roller coasters queue is about 40-50min. They have a few roller coasters rides. The roller coasters are all quite gently suitable for younger kids. The queue was much shorter than what you see in Disneyland, but the wait is about 40-50min because they are very inefficient. The staff spend time discussing in the control room instead of pre-loading the people for the next ride. They don’t seems to have a routine on what to do next. Each ride is managed by 1 or 2 staff only. The staff don’t pre-load the next batch of riders even though the next train is empty waiting. They wait till the previous train comes back and all passengers alight, then allow passengers to board the front train. For Rowdy roller coaster ride, they only despatched 4 rides in 22min. Each ride max 12people. For Red Falcon roller coaster, in 42min they despatched 4 rides, each rides max 32 people. There a many stalls selling foods.
