Located just outside the city of Nagoya, the Nagashima Spaland is an amusement park that forms part of the vast Nagashima Resort, a major tourist destination in Nagoya.
The main attraction of the Spaland is the giant roller coaster named the Steel Dragon 2000. Even from outside, you can see parts of the gigantic structure with its space-age looks. Besides the roller coaster, there are about forty other rides that you can enjoy once inside the park. Some of these are gentle ones suitable for kids while others are made with a view to entice all those adventurous souls!
The park also features an extensive water park full of many swimming pools, water slides and a wave pool. The attractions apart, one particularly impressive thing is how the many structures of the park fit in tastefully and almost seamlessly with the surroundings.
