About “Yokohama Cosmo World”
“Yokohama Cosmo World” is an urban amusement park in “Minato Mirai” area. Admission is free but you have to buy a ticket for attractions.
The park is composed of 3 zones namely the “Wonder Amuse” zone popular for young couples, the “Burano Street” zone for children and excitements, and “Kids Carnival” zone for little kids and toddlers.
The “Cosmo Click 21” (Ferris wheel) is the main attraction of the park, which is 112.5m high and accommodates 480 persons, and one of the largest in the world. The 15 minutes ride is very popular, because you can enjoy wonderful view of Yokohama, day and night. Needles to say a night ride is even more romantic.
Other attractions are a merry-go-round and the “Cycle Mono-Rail” where you can have an entire view of “Minato Mirai”. The park is enjoyable by not only children but also all generations. It is surely a must-see spot in Yokohama.
The Ferris Wheel at Yokohama Cosmo World: Good for Snap Shot
The Ferris Wheel itself is a good object for taking a photo, but at night it is even more attractive. It looks fantastic being illuminated and the reflection on the sea is breath taking. Since the wheel can be seen from many places at “Minato Mirai”, it is ideal to take snaps with back ground scenery particularly with the harbor. It will be a good memory of the port city Yokohama. Why not try one?
The Roller Coaster at “Yokohama Cosmo World”: Good for Snap Shot
The roller coaster called “Vanish” is another main attraction at “Yokohama Cosmo World”. The wagon slides down as if it would plunge into water making a big splash and the splash disappears instantly. Exciting, isn’t it? The water splash with the wagon makes a great photo shot. Why not take a shot? This thrilling moment is not to be missed.
