Hamanako PalPal

Family-friendly amusement park resort by Lake Hamana.

Amusement park

This is an amusement park resort where you can meet the cute characters designed by Takashi Yanase everywhere inside the park, located by Lake Hamana Kanzanji Onsen.

There are lots of rides including a carousel, which is safe for infants, and a big ferris wheel “Kokoo”. Also, it offers free admission fees for parents and children up to 3 people in total for 3 months from the child’s 3rd birthday. (Pre-registration and a proof of age are required) It is popular among families with small children since it also offers a birthday sticker and a birthday announcement to make a child's birthday extra special. There are many thrill rides like the mega coaster “4 Dimension” which flips 180 degrees then drops and rotates 360 degrees, and the log flume ride “Don Burako” which drops from a height of 14m (46ft). Not only children but also adults can enjoy this park for sure.

The cruise boat “Pal Cruise” takes you to a 30-min relaxing cruise on Lake Hamana. You can enjoy the feeling of the natural breeze on the spacious lake. This boat doesn’t sway very much and provides wide seats, so it is ideal for relaxing family time.
