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 thing was there were no queues to get on any of the rides. After experiencing... 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 to walk around, have a bit of fun and eat unhealthy food. Rides are slightly... More

Went there with 2 kids and the trouble was trying to get them to leave the place! Paid for all day passes and price was reasonable. The roller coasters were great! More catered to locals but we had no problem communicating. Queues were short.

Went here with a good surprise to find a lot of rides for baby, young kids and teenagers! The best of all is no queue in weekdays even during Chinese New Year holidays and we can play as many times as we like. Roller coaster types are suitable for young kids and also some for teenagers and adults like me... More

The park itself had a great vibe to it. Attractions such as roller coaster and swing ride really compliment the beauty of this park as the amazing view can be seen from when the ride is taken. Since I went here during Christmas, they had a special illumination event where the whole park is basically filled with different light colors,... More

This park is the oldest park in Japan. The roller coaster track are built with wood. Add a little excitement to it imo. The rides are more for kids I would say. As an teens/adult, it not that scary for the ride. I enjoyed the Ferris wheel! It give you a super beautiful view. The best part is, IT DOESN'T... More

Even though the amusement park is kind of build on a slope, however every ride is accessible by slopes so the whole park is very pram friendly. As for review on park, this park is awesome! All 3 of my kids of age 8, 3 and 1 all have rides that they can go onto ! Though for many rides,... More
