Important Notice:
Space World is scheduled to close at the end of 2017.

Space World is a big amusement park located in Kitakyushu, the northernmost city on the island of Kyushu. It boasts over 30 attractions, ranging from mild rides suitable for children to exciting ones for thrill seekers. One key feature is "Venus GP", a roller coaster that twists and turns around a huge model of a space ship, making a 360 degree loop in the process.

Other entertainment at the park include 4D simulators, family-orientated fun rides, song and dance theater shows, and carnival game stands (separate fee per game). Furthermore, there is a water park that opens only in the summer, where visitors can take a dip in the play pools or engage in interesting activities such as going down tall water slides.


Space World is a 5-10 minute walk from JR Space World Station, which is located along the JR Kagoshima Main Line and can be accessed from either Kokura Station (15 minutes, 280 yen) or Fukuoka's Hakata Station (1 hour, 1110 yen). Either approach is fully covered by the Japan Rail Pass and the Kyushu Rail Pass.
