Giant Ferris wheel
Gondolas on a Ferris Wheel Cosmo Clock 21, now a symbol of Yokohama Minato Mirai, has a maximum capacity of 480 and reaches 112.5 meters at its highest point, offering you an entire view of the downtown area and the port of Yokohama. After sunset, the wheel’s illumination changes color every 15 minutes, and looks like fireworks. The wheel appears in Guinness World Records as the world’s largest Ferris wheel equipped with a clock.
“Vanish,” a roller coaster going straight into the water, is the first of its kind in the world and extremely popular. You will be blown away by the thrill of descending into the water at full speed. The park is filled with even more rides you can enjoy while screaming your head off, “Cliff Drop” being one, a ride that measures the volume of your screams while sliding down at a rapid speed.
