We skipped the crowds at Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios in favor of this local amusement park. We visited on a weekday in November - so - no lines! We were able to ride some fun (not too scary) roller coasters, went to a couple...More

My husband was not keen on going to this park because it takes about an hour to travel there, besides he felt that we have just gone to Tokyo Disneyland. Nevertheless, we were in for a pleasant surprise as the park had lots of rides,...More

We went to Hirakata as a less crowded and less expensive alternative to some of the larger amusement parks in the area. We really enjoyed ourselves! The all day pass is a deal if you plan to ride the full day. There are some unusual...More

We went during the week and there were no crowds. At all. We were always the first on a ride and were able to stay on a few rides to go again. Only one ride, despite there being no one waiting, we were made to...More

Visited the theme park on a Sunday. It was filled with many local visitors. Queue to popular rides were quite long & we waited an average of about 15mins per ride. There were many rides for younger children. It was a pity that the water...More

We opted to go to Hirakata instead of Universal because we heard of some of the horrendous wait times at Universal. This was a great decision and an unforgettable experience. Park is in a small town that is about a half hour train ride outside...More

This place has been there since I was young kid. I remember my parents used to bring me and sisters. It had changed a lot since then. I'd still visit with families. You can spend all day there.

Hirakata Park is probably overshadowed by USJ as a destination. But for families with young kids (mine are 4 and 5), Hirakata is probably a better option as there are many many rides that young kids can sit. We went on a Friday and there...More

Hirakata Park is a great place to spend a day. We went there with our two children, aged 7 and 12, and had one of the best theme park experiences ever. Fees to get in were much cheaper than Universal Studios (USJ) and the best...More

We've been to Hirakata Park twice and had fun both times. Admission is about 1200 yen per person, more if you want some rides included. We did the Ferris wheel, which is 500 per person, once around. Nice views of the surrounding area. Good place...More
