Nara Dreamland: Another Disney Clone Park

16 Jun

Thank goodness for the Interweb. How else would I have friends like Eric from MouseGuest, who send me links to awesome things I may have otherwise missed?

Nara Dreamland is another Asian Disney clone park, this time in Nara, Japan. The illustrated trip review at ThemeParkInsider presents it as a wonderful mass of contradictions. One minute you’re in Disneyland, the next you’re in that haunted, abandoned theme park from Spirited Away. And Hello Kitty is there too!

Haven’t had enough? Need a little spin on the Screw Coaster? Here’s a YouTube for you, from the same good people:

    Thank you for your cine blog, I really enjoy your stories,
    When I was a child, I played well in the amusement park, but sorry, Nara Dreamland closed permanently in August of 2006

    Darn! I would have loved to go there! Oh well, just have to come up with another excuse to go back to Japan. 🙂

    Thank you for your blog too, I love the pictures!

    We really wanted to go to Dreamland, we were really sad when it closed! This is from just a few months before it closed: http://www.themeparkreview.com/japan2004/nara1.htm

    I really wish I got to go! We’re missing it by about a year. 😦
